Considering all of the evidence of the Paul Cain cover-up, it is easy to see how lies and manipulation of the Word of God play a huge part in fooling the masses. But some of the blame lies in our inability to think for ourselves and look past our own unsustainable doctrine. This “gap” in our reasoning allows for the modern-day prophet to come in and build an empire at the expense of our willful ignorance.
Like most of the doctrine that we learned growing up, our concept of the salvation process was formulated within a framework that, in my view, cannot really be backed up with Scripture. This framework made it easy for debates such as “once saved always saved vs. losing your salvation” to thrive in and confuse the church. This framework is flawed.
