Who Do You Follow Now?

   In the Bible, the people of Israel claim to worship God, but ultimately,
following Jeroboam, they were worshipping the golden calves. In fact, more than
2/3 of the history of Israelites was a history of having worshipped the golden
calves, thinking them to be God. Ultimately, even now, they continue to go on
living without realizing the fact that Jesus Christ, who has come by the gospel of
the water and the Spirit, is their true Savior. In spite of it all, there are many Jews
who are waiting for their Savior, even now.
     Then, how is the faith of you who claim to be taking part in Christianity in
this New Testament Era? Do you currently believe in and follow God with a
proper understanding of Him? If not, aren’t you perhaps worshipping golden
calves with a misapprehension of them as God? If you are like that, then you
must become aware of the fact that you are worshipping an idol before God like
the people of Israel. Then, you must revert back and meet the Lord who has come
by the gospel of the water and the Spirit. I am sure that you will be able to believe
in the gospel Truth when you truly realize before God what the Truth of the
salvation in the gospel of the water and the Spirit is, won’t you?
      I wish to testify before you the true faith and the Truth under the title,
“Heretics, Who Followers the sins of Jeroboam.” By all means, I hope you will be
a person of the same faith as that of mine.

                                                      These days, so many Christians aren’t aware of
                                                  the fact that they have become heretics by having
                                                  followed Jeroboam. If they had known that fact, they
                                                  would have reverted back, and then they would have
                                                  come to realize for certain what the love of God is
                                                  and what the God-given salvation is by having faith
                                                  in the gospel of the water and the Spirit. Then, the
                                                  history of Christianity all over the world would
                                                  surely have changed. But unfortunately, Christians
                                                  now all over the world are still following Jeroboam’s
                                                  sin.
                                                      What is the basis for the claim that Christians now
                                                  all over the world are following Jeroboam’s sin? The
                                                  basis for which I make such a claim is first of all the
