The Evil Side of Religion
By: M.E. Townsend

"...concerning the transgression of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flatters himself in his own eyes, When he finds out his iniquity and when he hates. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good." Psalm 36:1-3

Be it Methodist, Baptist, Charismatic, or Catholic, throughout the ages, time and theologies have taken what they perceived as Biblical and molded and shaped it into the gospel according to…

Now, in the twenty first century we have religions that are evil in thought, in word and in deed, in that they no longer teach truth but espouse to doctrines of devils which lead their congregations into error and ultimate destruction. The evil side of religion has no bounds, crossing all barriers to envelope the church of today, the body of Messiah.

What began with Charles and John Wesley and the “Holy Club” in England through their “method” of Bible study and prayer, the Methodist church has evolved into a religion, which justifies abortion in some “tragic” instances, condones homosexuality, teaching homosexuality is compatible with “Christian” theology and endorses the good work of the United Nation.

Out of a desire to purify the Church of England of all Roman Catholicism, the Baptist movement was born. A core belief that the Bible, not the church, was the guide in all matters of faith and practice and the belief that the church be made of believers has been replaced by the subtle deception of freemasonry. Over one million freemasons belong to the Baptist church, with many holding positions of authority. Godly men have succumbed to the snares of the enemy and are bringing this dark side of evil through the front door of their church.

“Just as they have chosen their own ways, And their soul delights in their abominations, So will I choose their delusions, And bring their fears on them; Because, when I called, no one answered, When I spoke they did not hear; But they did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight.” "Hear the word of the Lord, You who tremble at His word: “Your brethren who hated you, Who cast you out for My name’s sake... they shall be ashamed.” Isaiah 66:3-5

The Pentecostal movement grew out of the holiness revival, birthed in the early 1900s out of a commitment to the theological doctrine of perfectionism. Pentecostals focused on soul winning and looked upon politics and national events as dangerous divisors. The movement has gone from Pentecostal to Charismatic to Word of Faith and base their doctrine on an experience rather than a relationship with God. Leaders within the movement teach Jesus became a sinner as He hung on the cross, that Jesus was no more God than you or I and that the “Trinity” consists of nine members. They have exchanged godly discernment for deception, holiness for hollowness and no longer recognize truth from error.

With its roots going back to the time of the Apostles, the Roman Catholic Church does not claim to be ‘one’ valid expression of the church which Christ founded, it claims to be ‘the’ valid expression of the church which Christ founded. It claims that it has faithfully preserved the “traditions” given to us by Christ and the apostles, which ‘although not’ written in scripture have binding authority upon all who ‘wish to enjoy God’s favor.’

"You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or what is on the earth beneath or in the waters under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them." Exodus 20: 4-5

The Roman Catholic Church teaches the gospel that all false religions teach:
that Jesus the Christ is not the only way to God,
that Jesus the Christ is not the only mediator between God and man and
that Salvation is by works.

“For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and man, the man Christ Jesus.” I Timothy 2:5

"I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. "But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry." 2 Timothy 4:1-5
