Now I want to share something with you. I want you to understand how easy it is for you to be brainwashed by all these churches and people who do not know their Bibles or have the Spirit of God. Listen carefully.

It is so very important to do what the Bible says. God loves you, the devil hates you. As you will be learning, the whole world is under the control of Lucifer. God is doing His best, but the majority of people have accepted the plan of Lucifer and not the plan of God. Therefore, be suspicious of every one and every institution. You must test everything.

The reason God tells us in Isaiah to, "Come now, let us reason together," is so we won’t get brainwashed. Reason, but use God’s standard and rules and wisdom for doing the reasoning. No matter what anyone says, if it doesn’t stand up to the wisdom of God, get away from them.

So how easy is it to be brainwashed? Easier than you think. Take the following test and see if you can be brainwashed. Be honest. If you lie to yourself, you are lost. Open your eyes and be honest with yourself so you understand how easy it is to be fooled.

I want you to answer that question. Do it truthfully.  I want you to understand how easy it is to be brainwashed.  Did you say "robbers" or "burglars"?

Did you think “robbers” or “burglars”? I want you to answer that question. Do it truthfully. I want you to understand how easy it is to be brainwashed.


If you thought they were robbers and burglars, you were wrong. Do you see how simple it is to be wrong about something? You thought for sure you were right. Just like you thought your church was right, or your minister, or your way of thinking.

My friends, if you get your first thought wrong, everything is wrong after that. That is what is happening in our churches, our government, in our homes, in our educational systems and in all society. We have gotten our first thoughts wrong and everything we are doing and thinking is all screwed up. That is why Jesus has to return and put it all back together again.

Think!!! There are more ways to interpret a word, phrase or concept. It all has to do with perception. Get your perception wrong and everything you do after that will be wrong. That is how most of us got into trouble in the first place. Somehow we got our perceptions all messed up. Somehow we got hooked up with people who told us things that were not true, but sounded good. Just like our little example above. It sounds so plausible to be robbers at "home". But they aren’t.

searching the scripturesGet out your magnifying glass and look deeply into what is being said. God has provided this Bible study, to take you deeper than you may have ever gone before into the Word of God. Don’t be afraid to learn. Think, then think some more. Your eternal salvation depends on your thinking and learning the truth. The only way we can get to heaven is by knowing truth. It is only the truth that will set us free.

Let’s now take a look at this simple example at how easy it is to get screwed up in our thinking. I am going to give it to you again, but I’m only going to add two words.

See how simple it is to get your first thought screwed up and be brainwashed? That is happening all the time in our churches. The ministers, pastors, preachers, priests, are all giving us a "spin" and a story. Very few, says Jesus, are telling you the truth.

I pray that this Bible study will be able to "un-brainwash" you.
