Insanity Does Bite

I tried to warn believers that she was a wolf but they attacked me instead. That really happened to me.

This is a warning for all believers who are in WordPress. There is a wolf who is claiming to be a Christian but is recommending the Shack (the book) to read which is a blasphemous book but she also said these demonic statements:

“So, those of you who would be horrified, offended, outraged by the fact that God may appear to someone as a black woman, really need to re-examine that, take a hard look at what you are saying about yourself, your God, and the world around you. It’s an allegory, not a doctrinal decree.”


Isaiah 46:5

With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?

How can anyone compare the Holiness of God with a black woman or anything else for that matter? That is pure blasphemy and anyone who is promoting the Shack is in my personal opinion blaspheming God. This woman is a weed planted by Satan to make believers stumble and those who don’t know God yet, make them go further from the truth. Ladies and gentlemen, this woman is very dangerous spiritually speaking and should be avoided like a plague. There are a lot of Christians pressing like on her posts that’s blaspheming God and making them partake in her sins. Please, brothers and sisters, use God’s Word to detect what’s from God and what’s not. 

Pressing the “Like” bottom in my opinion is affirming whatever the post declares. Your avatar/internet persona will also appear giving other people who happen to go there and see it think that it is okay to intake since they see your “thumbs up” so to speak affirming what they are saying.

“No theology, no doctrine, no book, no wagging little pharistical fingers, could ever do what Louise did. She simply put a human face on the love of Christ and showed me He was real.”


She says that the theology (the study of God), doctrine (the teachings or the message of Christ) and book (God’s Word) couldn’t have helped her has a woman named Louise did. 

insanitybytes22 has completely rejected the power of God’s Word. She claims that Louise has more power than God’s Word by saying she did more than doctrine, the teachings of Christ. What makes something more horrific than her statements is that all the Christians are agreeing with her blasphemous messages. I have never seen in all my life immaturity in the body of Christ like I have seen this week. It blows my mind. Christians are applauding garbage like those statements above. Are there any Christians who would defend the honor and glory of Jesus Christ? No one helped or stood up with me in defending God’s honor or said anything to that woman. Is the body of believers infected with political correctness or what? Why are Christians afraid to speak out against false doctrine from a false Christian?

  1. There are many doctrines out there that are attempting to dilute God’s Word. The Word tells us that God the Father is a spirit, and those that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. He only appeared to man in the form of Jesus Christ. Any attempt to portray Him in any other way is contradictory to the Word of God.

  3. Seriously? I’m not one of her fans; but I can see her point.
    Are you saying that, we cannot see something of God in black women? His boundless capacity for love isn’t in their warmth of spirit? I grew up watching Touched by an Angel and I always enjoyed Della Reese – sometimes I wondered when the words she spoke were just the instruction the writers put in the script, or God speaking through her.
    If you think that God, who “all in all” cannot be portrayed as a black woman, but can be portrayed as a white man, then you fail to understand how “all” all is. God is not just above race and gender; but he is all races and all genders. He’s not even a “he” biologically speaking.
    What’s wrong with The Shack helping her? Are you saying that when people learn about God through The Chronicles of Narnia or the Lord of the Rings that they experience they have with God is inferior? I hate to break it to you, but the Bible has long had this reputation of being a boring, old, dusty, thick book. It’s not something that’s easy to read. God isn’t limited to the pages of the Bible to present himself; and since he’s the ulitmiate author, who is to say that he didn’t inspire The Shack to help her?

      1. I never used the word heretic but I did say she is a wolf, weed, and a deceiver by promoting a book that will take people away from the God of scripture into a god of this world. You assume wrongly that I hate her, you in the other hate her because you won’t tell her the truth. Those who withhold the truth from someone in error hates them. It’s your political correctness that has permeated you and the rest of the liberal Christians that cannot tell someone the truth in fear of offending them. I must proclaim the truth as my Master Jesus Christ directs me according to the scripture.

        Paul said it better in Galatians 1:6-9 which says, 6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

        How do I show someone in the computer love? By telling her and her hearers the truth. The Truth will always offend those who are going against regardless how nice if possible one can sound over the internet.

        I cannot in good conscience agree with what she is and that’s a weed for drawing people away from the Jesus of scripture into the trinity of a twisted mind.

        You want me to love them by agreeing to their damning doctrine, that I cannot do.

        A true Christian will not do what you have suggested.

      3. It matters because then you are introducing a different God and a classic illustration would be that of the cults who tell you a Jesus that’s foreign to scripture. God never revealed His form in anyway, He only revealed Himself in Jesus so to say God is a black woman is rebellion because He didn’t reveal Himself like that. We must stick to scripture or we can make God to be whatever we want which won’t be the right one.

In as much as we look like him; he looks like all of us.

      9. Since you refuse to answer my question of what gender you are I will make you to be a man until you say otherwise. Let’s say that someone starts to write a bio about your life and depicts you as being a woman. How will you react? Would that be accurate? Answer that for me, please. After your answer which I’m hoping will be a logical one that you be angry and displeased for being misrepresented. Now, use that same logic to God who revealed Himself as the Father not mother.

        To answer your question above.
        I think you misunderstand the word gospel because Deut. is not meant to be the gospel so your question on that is strange. Jesus fulfilled the ceremonial Law (animal sacrifice) and the civil Law that was for the nation of Israel at the time of the wilderness. Saying that, what does that have to do with the prohibition of making an image of God in the form of a man or a woman in the same connection with the sacrificial system and all the ceremonial laws that were required at the time? Jesus didn’t fulfill Deut. 4:15-16 just like the moral law must be followed today. What you are doing is a classic illustration of what liberal Christianity likes to do. That is to throw away anything that clearly they don’t like or goes against their beliefs which is your case. I would suggest that you rethink your position on how to understand the scriptures because it is in great error.

    And what of God? Will He not be offended? He came down as a man. This is how He revealed Himself, and that is how we mere humans should respect His identity.

    It is plain rebellion and arrogance to think that we know more than what God revealed to us.

      The Bible tells me that if a professing Christian is sinning to point it out and why? Good question, to get them back on the right track. I tried but she refuses so I have to warn the rest of the believers to be careful. If you look at my blog that’s one of its purposes.

    I have not read The Shack. I do read insanitybytes’ blog and think highly of it.

    One thing I find difficult is to be full of both grace and truth. When I am tired, hurt, angry or some such thing, my cup does not run over. Too often it simply cracks and what little grace I have simply leaks away. To know the Truth requires wisdom. Sometimes in arrogance I forget the wisdom that God’s Word contains the Truth, not me.

    So could God manifest Himself as a black woman? Have you read => https://violetwisp.wordpress.com/2017/03/12/demonic-statements-from-insanitybytes/? Why is violetwisp wrong? What I think revealing is the irony in her own words. violetwisp would do well to read her post. Are some men so sinful they ignore what the Bible says? Yes. Most of us ignore or deliberately misunderstand something. Being good and holy does not come easy to creatures with a free will. That is why we need a savior.

    I think the reason we have the Bible is that God knows better than to trust us to remember His Words correctly. Did He not read Animal Farm before George Orwell wrote the book?

    In scripture God manifests Himself as an angel, a man, an ass, a cloud, a pillar of fire, a burning bush….. He had stinking herdsmen such as sheepherders speak His words as prophets. Perhaps He wants us to understand between the one who gives us the message and the one who created the message.

    We cannot live and see God. We don’t know how He appears. We don’t understand His nature or His mind. So what makes blasphemy blasphemy is how we portray the character of God. What makes blasphemy blasphemy is failing to be awed by the presence of God regardless of how He manifests Himself. What make blasphemy blasphemy is the foolish notion God might not be perfectly holy and wholly worthy of our adoration.

    1. You brought a lot of points that will take me too long to address them all. I will address as much as I can.

      you said-“I do read insanitybytes’ blog and think highly of it.”

      I would reconsider that statement and check what she said next to scripture because her theology is twisted. If she can’t get the nature of God right what else does she get wrong?

      you said-: Sometimes in arrogance, I forget the wisdom that God’s Word contains the Truth, not me.”

      Is it arrogant telling someone the truth of scripture? Is it arrogant pointing out someone’s false doctrine to save their hearers that might not yet have a saving faith? Is arrogance keeping you Tom from telling insanitybytes22 the truth or are you fooled by her false teachings? What do the scriptures say:

      2 Timothy 3:16-17
      16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

      We as Christians need to teach scripture alone, rebuke false doctrine or what goes against scripture like God being a black woman, and correct those that are clearly wrong when making God be a transgender who is called papa but is a woman, pure demonic.

      you said-“Being good and holy does not come easy to creatures with a free will.”

      Being good and holy come to those who hold on to the truth of the gospel which will transform you into the likeness of Jesus Christ. The problem is that people have an issue of being corrected that they hold to views that deviate from sound doctrine.

      you said-“I think the reason we have the Bible is that God knows better than to trust us to remember His Words correctly.”

      Wrong Tom the reason we have the Bible is found in John 15:7-8 which says, “7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

      God’s Word is for us to have fellowship with Jesus Christ and produce fruits for His glory.

      you said-“In scripture, God manifests Himself as an angel, a man, an ass, a cloud, a pillar of fire, a burning bush”

      Tom the ass part is a misunderstanding in your part and incorrect.
      The Angel of the Lord had to be a pre-incarnate of Jesus Christ (all theologians agree in this point of view since no one can see God and live)

      Numbers 22:23
      23 When the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with a drawn sword in his hand, it turned off the road into a field. Balaam beat it to get it back on the road.

      Tom, where do you see God manifesting Himself as the donkey? Your interpretation was grotesque.
      The Angel of the Lord was in front of the donkey and made it talk as seen in Numbers 22:28 which says, 28 Then the Lord opened the donkey’s mouth, and it said to Balaam, “What have I done to you to make you beat me these three times?”

      How can you compare the burning bush, man (Jesus Christ) and an angel to a black woman? The bush was so no one can see God’s form and only decided to reveal Himself in the person of Jesus which the Angel of the Lord was a pre-incarnate of Jesus. God the Father showed no form why? We see in the answer in Deuteronomy 4:15-16 which says, 15 You saw no form of any kind the day the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, 16 so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman

      To make God the Father into an image of a woman is blasphemous and Tom, if you don’t repent for agreeing that God can be a woman, God will hold you responsible for that sin.
      Papa in the Shack has nothing to do with the Holy God of the Bible.

      Over the years what I have seen people do with scripture surprises me. I have come to the conclusion that the Bible is the only true authority on scripture. It is not my job or anyone else’s to beat people over the head with the Bible. We don’t attack with the Word. We stand and defend. We force Satan, not our neighbors to flee.

      So I ask a simple question. Are you judging others with the same mercy with which you wish to be judged?

      1 Kings 19:11-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

      11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.

      When He passed by, where was God? The Bible portrays the attributes of God in many ways. He is called the Ancient of Days, a Warrior, our Father, our Shepherd, and so forth. The Bible gives God many names => https://www.gotquestions.org/names-of-God.html. He is a spirit. What is a spirit? Do we know?

      The amazing thing about Jesus is that those who saw Him saw the Father. Yet Jesus had to tell them that.

      You asked some questions.

      About the black woman.

      We are each made in the image of God. As Christians, we make letting Christ Jesus show through us the object of our lives. So if someone sees Jesus in you is that blasphemy? Do you worry that someone might commit such “blasphemy” because of you? I don’t. What I understand is what insanitybytes22 learned from a black woman. Before we read the message of Christ — the Bible — we must see evidence Jesus’ grace, mercy, truth, holiness, and love in someone else. What is the Great Commission? It is leading others to the foot of the cross by letting Jesus shine through us. What we do at the foot of the cross is worship God, and that does include Bible study, of course. We just love and thank the person who led us to Jesus.

      God manifesting Himself as the donkey

      It seems to me you are working lawfully hard to find cause for blasphemy. No one compared God to donkey, but God did put His words for devious man in a donkey’s mouth. Thus, that crafty fellow saw unmistakable evidence of power of God in form of powerful angel and a talking donkey. When God manifested Himself to us in Jesus, did God commit blasphemy against Himself? Is not Jesus fully man and fully God?

      Limits of Language

      Why is the Bible provided to us in multiple translations? Why are there so many commentaries? The Bible is deep. Although the basic message is easy enough to grasp, the Bible contains much for us to understand, and sometimes that understanding is difficult. Since the Bible was written to people now long dead, to understand the Bible’s words as they were suppose to understand it requires considerable effort. That is, we have put ourselves in the sandals and footsteps of those people.

      When we communicate with each other, there is a similar problem. At one extreme, we can spend all our time telling others what to say and what to think. At the other extreme we can just listen and not question. Since neither cocksure criticism or passive listening require understanding, most people seek a happy medium. In particular, before we accuse others of sin, should we not try to understand them first.

        You don’t believe that the scripture is the only authority on scripture because what you are defending contradicts that statement. How can you defend another gospel that blasphemes the name of God by putting it on a black woman, what’s wrong with you. Are there any Christian in WordPress that still loves the truth? I know a few. Are you serious Tom that you feel that by telling the truth I’m beating them over the head with the Bible? What does the Bible say regarding correction? Let’s see what Paul did.

        Galatians 3:1-3
        You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?

        Paul here calls them foolish because they were deviating from sound doctrine to false doctrine in keeping the law. Paul called them out for their deviation and I’m calling you out for defending a person who is promoting false doctrine through the Shack that’s blaspheming the Living God.
        That’s another gospel Tom which you are defending, What does the Bible say about that Tom.

        Galatians 1:6-9
        6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse!

        Cursed is the person who preaches false doctrine Tom and you are defending that type of garbage. I’m not cursing them the Bible is. The curse here is anathema which means to be under God’s judgment. Do you not care that insanitybytes22 and anyone else that you didn’t correct because of preaching false doctrine is under God’s curse, do you care Tom? Or if they don’t want to repent, do you care in warning other believers about doctrines of demons that they are sharing? You are so politically correct that I see no difference between you and the world. The world hates the truth and you don’t defend it. It’s easy to talk against abortion, atheists and etc because all the Christians agree but when a false Christian is preaching heresy you don’t want to offend so you allow them to not here the truth or warn others from falling into their deception. I have never seen on a massive scale so much deviation from the truth as I have witnessed in WordPress. It is sad to see you go this route of deception.

        you said-“So I ask a simple question. Are you judging others with the same mercy with which you wish to be judged?”

        Tom, do you even know what you are saying?

        Matthew 18:15-16
        15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’

        If you are not doing the same sin or are living in a sinful lifestyle the Bible clearly teaches to confront a Christian who is going astray. Do you Tom care that insanitybytes22 is going astray?
        you said-“The Bible is deep. Although the basic message is easy enough to grasp, the Bible contains much for us to understand, and sometimes that understanding is difficult. Since the Bible was written to people now long dead, to understand the Bible’s words as they were suppose to understand it requires considerable effort. That is, we have put ourselves in the sandals and footsteps of those people.”
        I can’t believe what you just said Tom. Are you telling me that the Holy Spirit cannot give us in today’s time understanding of scripture? I see now why you believe this because your theology is in the Shack and probably combined with other interpretation.
        you said-“We are each made in the image of God. As Christians, we make letting Christ Jesus show through us the object of our lives. So if someone sees Jesus in you is that blasphemy? Do you worry that someone might commit such “blasphemy” because of you? I don’t. What I understand is what insanitybytes22 learned from a black woman.”

        Tom, what are you saying? Do you actually study scripture or do you go to other people sites and learn the Bible from them because your interpretation is way out there and completely wrong. Do you even understand that the word image doesn’t mean that God created us as He looks like? Read the context, Tom, come on man.

        Genesis 1:26
        26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

        The image here refers to rule over creation as God is ruler over all creation, so in that, since we are created in His image to be like Him as ruler over His created order here on earth. The words are defined in its proper context.

        you said-“What is the Great Commission? It is leading others to the foot of the cross by letting Jesus shine through us.”

        Tom, how can you bring a person to the truth if you can’t even detect what’s false and what’s not. By you believing that God can be a woman goes against the revelation that’s found in the Bible about who God is. God has the title Holy Father not mother, that’s what the Bible declares who God is our Father to say He can be a woman is blasphemous because you are attributing God’s name to a woman, wow. I would have never thought that I would see a Christian saying that and believing demonic doctrines.

        you said-“It seems to me you are working lawfully hard to find cause for blasphemy. No one compared God to donkey,”

        I don’t like when a person Tom is dishonest which you are being right now, your semantics is not fooling anyone. I will quote you again in what you said that you did say that God manifested into an ass (donkey).

        This is your quote Tom-“In scripture God manifests Himself as an angel, a man, an ass, a cloud, a pillar of fire, a burning bush…..”

        This is my last response to you Tom, you said “-“In scripture God manifests Himself as an angel, a man, an ass, if this is not dishonesty than we would have to redefine the word. You are a defender of false doctrine. You will have to answer on judgment day to the Living God for defending a woman who brings people away from the God of the Bible.

        The Book of James tells us that the Bible is a mirror; it shows us as we are.

        One of the things I have realized that Jesus did when He condemned the behavior of the scribes and the Pharisees is that He condemned a common behavior. Legalism is commonplace. Many of us love to hold ourselves us up as some kind of model of perfection. Yet Jesus is ultimately the only model we need.

        What Jesus wanted the scribes and the Pharisees to realize was their hearts were not pure. They needed the Great Physician too. Oops! Did it again. Perhaps I even had a black woman physician in mind.

        Philippians 2:3 New King James Version (NKJV)

        3 Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.

        As Christians, we assume that other Christians — other people — have great challenges and that they are doing their best. That is, when we see something we find disagreeable about another person, we assume innocence until we have no other choice. Most people are more in need of praise than condemnation.

        So it is that our Lord expects me to do my best to think well of you. By the same token, He expects you to think well of insanitybytes22.

        Anyway, nobody can be argued into anything, and I have said my piece. Have a good day.

      3. Tom, I love you, insanitybytess22 and those who hate me. I tried talking to insanitybytes but she refuses to be corrected and still wants to promote a false depiction of God. If I don’t warn people as yourself and other Christians, than what love do I have. By loving people on the internet is to tell them the truth as found in holy scripture. I love God’s Word and that’s by what I live by. One cannot be cowardice in the face of false doctrine for the fear of not being liked, I think that’s silly.

  7. God’s misrepresentation (the “allegory”) is barely scratching the surface. At the heart of it all, Universalism is promoted, everyone is reconciled to the Father without the need for repentance and a relationship with the One True God. It is no wonder it’s a best-seller. After all, it is a sensual gospel.

        Thank you.

        I rarely take the time to see a movie. Use to watch when I was young, but I have too many other ways to spend my time these days. Some of my friends seem to like it, but I have not read the book or see movie.

        Because the Bible is a complex work, we all understand it a bit differently. I try to live by it. Spaniardviii tries to live by it. Even you, although you are a Deist, are affected by its teachings. That is because the Bible profoundly affected the thinking of those who preceded us.

        I am currently reading the Handbook of Christian Apologetics by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli. See => https://www.amazon.com/Handbook-Christian-Apologetics-Peter-Kreeft/dp/0830817743/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1487733970&sr=1-1&keywords=Handbook+of+Apologetics+by+Peter+Kreeft.

        You may find it interesting. It is a philosopher’s approach to proving the existence of God and the divinity of Jesus Christ. It is actually the sort of thing we ought to see in school, but we have secularized the schools. Sigh!

        So it is the sort of thing I read these days, what I should have read decades ago.

    1. Lol….Your compliment is actually a bad thing if it’s for a Christian saying that you agree with what they said.

      John 15:18-19

      18 “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.

      Tom, here is proof that what you believe is loved by the world and they love you and these are the ones that hate Christ. If the world loves you, Tom, what does that say about your standing in the truth Tom?

        If you come to my blog to insult Christians and comments like that I have the right to delete it. I will not allow garbage in my post. And if you don’t like it then don’t comment with insults or at all.

        You are no longer a Christian because you never were one according to 1 John 2:19. You apostatized and are playing the blame game towards other Christians. You will have to answer in judgment day for your rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you have a legitimate question I would be happy to answer and if all you want is to rant go to your atheist’s friends blog and do it there. The reason I commented on an atheist post was because I was the topic or else I wouldn’t have been there.

        Hebrews 10:26-31
        26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

        Fear in that context means reverence and respect do to God. And reading the Word everyday and doing what it says. Love people, defend the truth, correct and encourage.

    1. To love God is to love Truth and to defend it. Those who claim to love God but allow someone to deceive a person without you pointing out to that person that they are being deceived than you really don’t love God or the other person. The worst thing a Christian can do is to allow a person to go to hell because you didn’t want to warn them of false doctrine.

      Your comment to me is the saddest one that I ever read from a professing Christian, very sad.

When a person rejects the righteousness of God is because they want to hold on to their righteousness thus the term self-righteous. I’m telling you the truth that without God’s righteousness inputted into you, you cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven.

        So, because I like The Shack which I assume you are referring to as a lie, I am absent of God’s righteousness ?

        With all due respect, you need to leave the judging business up to God and concentrate on living a life that others would like to copy. That would be a good starting point.

        You obviously failed to comprehend the focus of the movie was on “Grace” and “Forgiveness”, something you know little about. Very sad.
