Do the writings and theology of Jack Sequeria truly represent correct Bible doctrine, or is it something else again?


Here is one quote from Jack Sequerias book, “Beyond Belief.”

“The gospel of faith plus works, or justification plus sanctification, is at the heart of Roman Catholicism theology. It is a subtle form of legalism.” (p. 25)

That’s funny; this is not what the Bible teaches.

James 2:20 But will you know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

He assigns two Bible doctrines to Roman Catholicism in one fell swoop.
He also denies the necessary lifelong work of sanctification, which is separate from justification.

By faith in Christ, and obedience to the law of God, we may be sanctified, and thus obtain a fitness for the society of holy angels and the white-robed redeemed ones in the kingdom of glory.
{RH, April 26, 1881 par.

Thank you brother, for your sound wisdom and judgment. I have seen Sequerias teachings are quite pervasive as is Desmond Ford's. My understanding is that Sequeria's teachings are that where the Bible is interpreted in a manner that appeals to the unrenewed heart. We have many such destroyers of the truth that attack from within. Such are the worse enemies of God's truth.

I truly believe those who are converted and humbly seek for God's truth will find it.

John 16:13 However, when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.
The ones that you have to watch are the Pipims, Veiths and crowd. They will send you into legalism. I prefer the Bible and SOP based teachings of Sequeria.
One day I promise you, you will know the truth.
It will not be the Billiter's heresies of teaching legalisms and evolution. He has also been known to teach panthism and other spiritual poisons. But then our prophet foretold that there would be apostates amoung us in the end times. The sinners will be sifted out ... the chaff separated from the precious wheat. This is terrible ordeal but must take place. By their fruits you shall know them. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see the fruits of Billiter. The remnant will remain strong amongst the surrounding apostasy. Praise God. But we must resist this blasphemy of Billiter's.

.Billiter teaches subtle forms of hypnosis but it will be resisted by the remnant who have heard the warnings of the prophet Ellen White.

As predicted ... Billiter especially targets our young people. So, we must present the Truth as Present Truth to those precious minds.
Either this is some strange form of pantheism, or something equally weird. The whole human race, he says, was in Christ and did what He did. Is this blasphemy? A new form of pantheism, does anyone know what this is? It could be the omega to come that Ellen White spoke of. The heresies in the end.

The entire human race is corporately one “in Him” just as we are one “in Adam.” What Jesus did, we have done, because we are corporately one in Him. (Jack Sequeria, Beyond Belief)
We did what Jesus has done? We were corporately in Him” We were in Adam? How? Where does the Bible say this?

. At His incarnation, Christ assumed the corporate life of the entire human race in its fallen condition [see 1 Corinthians 1:30]. (Jack Sequeria, Beyond Belief)
1Co 1:30 But of him are you in Christ Jesus, who of God is made to us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
This verse does not say what Sequeria says it does. Paul addresses the individual reader saying he has put on Christ, been born again, has the Holy Spirit. Sequeria is saying the whole human race was “in Christ” In actuality Jesus died for the whole human race.
Ephesians 2:5 -- made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.

Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
New International Version (NIV)
Excellent. Straight Testimony from the mouth of God.
this has nothing to do with Sequera's quotes. Whats your point?
It's Present Truth pure and undiluted. Straight from the Gospel. It is Anti-Billiter. And it is just as Jack believes. And not the Billiter Blasphemy.
I can see some truth in your statement, It is Sequeria's own brand of "present truth" straight from a false gospel.

Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel to you than that you have received, let him be accursed.

It is Anti-Billiter, (and anti-Bible) Sorry, that's it. Its nice we can agree huh?
Elder Sequeira seems to embrace another popular, but erroneous belief in contemporary Adventism-the idea that the Biblical "fight of faith" means fighting with self, but not with specific sins (p. 137). At the series of meetings we have referred to several times, Brother Sequeria stipulated, "God doesn't need our help. All He wants is our permission.” {112} (Sequeria, Questions and answers, Nov. 6, 1993, 4:45 P.M. on tape) this "let go and let God" approach to Christian living is not formulated either in the Scriptures or in the Spirit of Prophecy.

The apostle Paul writes: "Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God." 2 Corinthians7:1. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12. "Ye have not yet resisted
unto blood, striving against sin. " Hebrews 12:4. Ellen White agrees: The fact that Christ has conquered should inspire his followers with courage to fight manfully the battle against sin and Satan. {GC88 510.3}

(Pastor Kevin Paulson, Beyond Belief Reviewed)
Paulson is just spreading heresy and being used of the Devil. Sequeria is doing God's work and spreading the Third Angels Message to the world. He is a man of God. And he truly teaches the Gospel.
