These days, there is not much changed concerning opposition against the teachings of Jesus Christ and the preaching of Good News.
2000 years ago Jesus spoke about such teachers who think they are the only ones who can explain the Bible. Today people should be aware that it is the Scriptures itself that can explain everything and that it is Jeshua, Jesus Christ, whom we should follow as the most perfect teacher.
A look at the bible Students and different Jehovah's Witnesses regulations or prescriptions and rules for undergoing baptism.
Always there have been real followers of Jesus who only worshipped his One God, the God of Israel. Many centuries they worked and preached behind closed doors, avoiding persecution and death on the balefire. In fear of the stake for centuries the real followers of God baptised people in their faith, not demanding to be part of one or another church but being part of the Body of Christ.

The God of Jesus has man given the own possibility to choose what to believe and what to do, therefore it is up to man to make the right choice and to believe in the Only One true God or in the god man has created for himself or to please himself.

Also feelings and experiences are difficult to proof, though the results of a God-Being in our life is something what many feel. One thing is for sure: "If God does not exist, then everything is permitted". In the transcendent reality we can not see nor fully understand God but somehow looking around us and listening to our inner feeling each person should be able to come to recognise the Supreme Power and to understand that reality is shaped by a Power beyond us.
