It seems to be surprising to many people that the churches are filled with so much evil. Sadly, many people have let this fact (and it is a fact)
destroy their faith. But for people who look more closely at the life of Christ they will see the truth of God in his life, death, and
Do you not remember that it was the church itself that put Christ to death?
Do you not remember that not one, not even one, of the Apostles were a Jewish priest?
Do you not remember that Christ turned over the tables in the temple?
A major truth about the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior was the corruption of the people who ran the church of God, the Jewish
priests. People are not perfect. Only God is perfect. The life, death, and resurrection of Christ proves many things, but firstly it proves that there
is much corruption in the church, and yes, the Church of God as well as other churches. If the church was not corrupt, then Christ would never have
been put to death. Does this prove that God and religion are flawed? Of course not. In fact, it only validates that God is in charge, not matter how
corrupt the church may be at any given time.
The life of Christ demonstrates that the church is flawed because humans are flawed. This is the way that it has always been. Have you never read the
old testament? How many times had God turned against his chosen people and chastised them precisely because of corruption and evil within the
But unfortunately, we are raised today to simply believe that God’s churches on earth are nothing but good and that no one who does evil can reside
there. But this is not the truth at all, and the Bible will tell you this. The Bible will tell you that churches themselves have in history been some
of the worst and most corrupt places on earth. God does not hid that some, or even all, of the churches run by man are filled with evil.
What does Christ say in the Book of Revelation to the 7 churches? Does he give them all nothing but praise? Of course not! Instead, Christ chastises
each and every one of the 7 churches of God. Do we learn from this? No. Do we say that the churches cannot be of God if they have flaws and the people
do evil? Sadly, some of us do. But does Christ himself say that they are not the true churches of God? Of course not! Instead, he instructs the
Apostle John to write each and every one of the true churches a letter explaining all too well that they are doing evil in the site of God and that
they need to change their ways immediately.
But we are not raised to be guarded when it comes to God and to the his churches. We should be raised this way but many are not. God and Christ are
not the problem. It is we who are the sinners. We are the problem. We are the ones who run the flawed churches and we are the ones who turn away from
a perfect God because of the many sins of man.
But if we were raised to be guarded against evil from all sources, most especially from the church then we would all be closer to the perfect God
because we would walk closer down the path of our Lord and Savior who constantly corrected the priests in the temples.
God is perfect. We should never turn away from God. And we should never be raised to treat man as if he can do no evil because he is a member of a
church, a school, or a representative of the law.
If a police officer broke the law and beat you after he caught you speeding does this invalidate the law? Are the laws of our country a scam if even
all the police officer in the country do not follow them? Of course not. Why then do you say that God does not exist simply because many men choose to
Let me tell you something that is not a secret. The world is filled with evil and it has been this way the moment that man was placed upon it. The
churches are filled with evil, the governments are filled with evil, the people are filled with evil and yes, you and I are filled with evil too. The
Bible say that our righteousness is like filthy rags to the Goodness of God. The Bible says that none are righteous before the Lord. Why then do many
people expect that only good should be found in the churches? The Bible does not say this and neither does the life of Christ. When did it start that
people taught their children that all the people in church are good and wholesome when nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact that the churches may or may not be evil does not prove God to be false. Oh no. Instead, it only proves that God is true, for God has granted
each and every one of us the power of free will, and because of this, evil will always be everywhere in this world as long as we are in it.
If you have let the evils of others destroy your faith in the perfect God then guess what, you are only human, just like the rest of us. A sinner,
just like the rest of us. But learn from this and read the words of God. Do not let the evils of man take you further from our Perfect God and his
Son, Our Lord.
