Armstrong added to Paul’s gospel of grace in Galatians with various laws and commandments. These violate Paul’s doctrine as found in Colossians 2 and Romans 14. The book of Ephesians refutes the unscriptural tenets of the British Israel Theory which outline ethnic and racial superiority.


Denial of Eternal Security

This heresy teaches that a believer can lose their salvation through a lack of good works.  This is contrary to John 1:12, 1John 32:2, Romans 8:14, Galatians 4:5, Ephesians 4:30, 2Corinthians 1:22, 1Peter 1:5, Hebrews 13:5, Matthew 28:20; Ephesians 2:8-9.

Baptismal Regeneration
This heresy states that babies can be cleansed from all sin by being baptised. This is not found in the Bible (Romans 4:15; 5:13)

Salvation through Works
This heresy is contrary to Romans 11:6; Ephesians 2:8-9. It teaches that human effort is required to get saved and to maintain salvation.  

True Church theory
This heresy teaches that "Our Church is the only true church". Those who have received Christ alone by faith alone are members in his church, and being in his body (Ephesians 4:4; 5:23-32; Col 1:18-24).

This heresy teaches that the wicked are destroyed with no eternal punishment. Jesus disagreed (Matthew 25:41; Luke 16:24).

Denial that Jesus Christ is God
This heresy is contrary to what the King James Bible says in 1John 5:7; John 20:28, Isaiah 9:6; 1 Timothy 3:16 and many others.

Denial the Holy Ghost is God
This heresy is contrary to what the King James Bible says in 1 John 5:7; Acts 5:3-4 and many others. 

Denial of a Literal Burning Hell
This heresy is contrary to what Jesus says in Matthew 5:22; 25:41 etc

Denial of the Trinity aka the Godhead
This heresy is contrary to what 1John 5:7 says. Also Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9.

Deity of Man
This heresy teaches that man is God or can become God. Contrary to 1 John 5:7-8, Isaiah 44:6; Isaiah 45:5 etc.

Denial of the Blood Atonement
This heresy teaching is contrary to John 1:29; Hebrews 9:22: Acts 20:28

Denial of the Physical Resurrection of Christ
This heresy teaching is contrary to Luke 24:38-39; John 20:27 

Sabbath Keeping
This heresy teaches that Christians should worship on Saturday. This is contrary to Paul’s teachings in 1Corinthians 16:2. Christ rose on the 8th day and this is why Christians gather on Sunday.  

British-Israel Theory
This heresy teaches that the Ten Tribes of Israel went to the British Isles after being taken into captivity by the Assyrians in 722 BC. This heresy has the Anglo-Saxon races being heirs to the promises of Israel, and is contrary to Luke 2:26; 2 Chronicles 30: 11; 12; 18; 34:9, as these scriptures prove these tribes were never lost.  The Bible clearly shows that many members of the ten tribes of Israel were still living in their land during the spiritual revival in Judah under King Josiah just 100 years after the nation was carried away into Assyria!

This heresy teaches there is more than one God. Read what God Almighty thinks about this in Isaiah chapters 41- 49
