The Samaritan woman, Jesus and apostates YESTERDAY AND TODAY. BY FABIAN MASSA.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator.

In John 4.20, the Samaritan woman asks Jesus:

 20 So tell me, why do you Jews insist that Jerusalem is the only place where people must worship, while we Samaritans claim that is here at Mount Gerizim, [c] where they worship our ancestors ?
Here is a very important fact, the city of Shechem was inbetween the Ebal Montes (south) and Gerizim (north).

The 1st time the Bible appoints these Montes is when Moses tells the Israelites that when they pass "across the Jordan", ie Canaan, had to write the Law on great stones previously whitewashed on Mount Ebal such as Memorial and build an altar where a sacrifice to the Lord of Peace. Deuteronomy 27.1-8. This happened to the 1440 B.C.
Shortly afterwards, by conquering Jericho and Ai, Joshua fulfilled the mandate Moses built an altar on Mount Ebal and wrote the law on two tables as a Memorial.

Shortly after Solomon's death (928 B.C.) how we saw, the kingdom was divided into two parts:

to. The Northern Kingdom, composed of 10 of the twelve tribes, ruled by Jeroboam.

b. The southern kingdom, made up of Judah and Benjamin, ruled by Rehoboam, son of Solomon.

Jeroboam established a parallel cult of Jerusalem, which was the place that God had chosen "To put his name there" (2 Chronicles 7) God. Jeroboam knew this, but did not want "his subjects" go to Jerusalem, because he feared they returned to serve Rehoboam, took up arms and he lost "his kingdom".
For this reason he invented a strange cult, appointed priests who were not Levites and built two temples, one in Dan and one in Bethel - House of God - (called Beth-Aven by Hosea, ie House of Iniquity) and put them Calves gold as gods. (1 Kings 12). For this reason the Samaritan tells Jesus, "You. They say they should worship in Jerusalem, but we taught us to worship here "

By the time the story of John 4, had been about 950 years since Jeroboam "change" worship God for political, economic and personal vainglory convenience.

The same happens today (2016) for the same reasons, (vainglory personnel, economic and political - ensure power) change apostates gospel worship today, distorting Scripture, for their own benefit.

Why not tolerate altering Scripture, denounced the false shepherds and teachers, false prophets and Prosperity "Gospel of Life Pink Christian". A false teacher affects generations, as we saw in the story of the Samaritan woman.

 Week 70 is about to begin, do not stay outside.

The Samaritan woman, Mount Ebal, Mount Gerizim, False Teachers, Prosperity Gospel.
