Quite a bit of our understanding of Christianity is negative today because of the work of Anti-Christ. For example, wars throughout history. Jesus
taught us to love our enemies. That rules out the Crusades as being "Christian," for example. Today, churches preach tithing. Tithing is not part
of Christian doctrine, and pushes away those who would believe in Christianity. Saving works, as taught by most churches, also push away those who
would believe. When you add it all up, most teaching and churches in the Christian religion are anti-Christ.
The Book of Revelation describes the situation most fittingly. It calls the Christian church the Great Whore that sitteth upon all the earth. Think
about it. What is a whore? A person who sells her body, and denies her morals, for money. Has that been happening? Sure. What else do we know
about the Whore? She is called Babylon, which is a name that means "mixing", as when making fodder. How would this Whore be involved in mixing?
Mixing truth with lies. For example, tithing is a Mosaic law. Jews today do not pay tithing, but Christians have adopted the practice from Moses.
Another example, baptism. Baptism is taught to be a requirement to go to heaven. It is a misunderstanding of one line of text due to it's
translation into English from Greek. No other supporting texts for that concept. Works of righteousness for salvation is another misconception.
When you start adding them up, people become more and more disenchanted and divisive. Denominations form, separating what was in the New Testament
"One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all."
Why? Money. Start a new church, make a lot of money. Some Christian churches aren't even Christian, like Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses. They have
a completely different concept of God, and each church is exclusive. In other words, if you don't follow their doctrine you can't go to a great
place. Their doctrines center around your personal worth and righteousness, earning your place in heaven by following the teachings of their "more
correct" translation of the holy scriptures and the personal revelations of their leadership. The end result is people living in a feeling of guilt
because they can't do enough to gain their heavenly reward.
The Great Whore is on TV now, with televangelists. Send money, get a healing. Send money, help spread the word. Send money, god will give you more
money because of your "seed" faith that you have "planted" with your "seed" money. Of course, this approach likely turns off more people than
it draws in, so once again the society we live in looks at Christians as fools and charlatans, out for the big bucks. Who can blame them? The end
result: people turning from Christianity. This is an effective method of the Anti-Christ.
What I am saying is this: the Christian churches you see doing these things are part of the Great Whore, as they are mixing the truth with a lie.
Here is the truth: God loves you. He sent His Son into the world to save you, not condemn you. He has a place for you in heaven. His Son was sent
to draw all men unto Him. If you do not believe here, you will get a second chance there after you die (Jesus went to preach to the spirits that were
taken in the Great Flood who had not heard his teacings, for example (I Peter 3:19). You will be with Jesus after you die, you will see clearly then,
and you will see the love of God for you. Few will evade or deny it when it confronts them face to face: come with Jesus and feel the love of God
forever, or turn away of your own free will to go away from the love of God. In spite of your sinful ways on earth, God has provided a way for you
to enter heaven and it is not based on any works of righteousness that you have done. It is a free gift, given to everyone. The punishment for all
your bad deeds is complete, paid for on the cross by Jesus, whether you accept the payment or not. The free ticket is lying on the altar, all you
have to do is pick it up. If you don't understand it here, you will there. He will teach you, personally.
Compare that to the misinformation being taught by churches today. If you are taught the above doctrine, you have no reason to pay money. Just feel
free to spread the word. That's how it's supposed to be. Person to person, the "good news" should be "good news" not enslavement to churches
psychologically or financially.
So, if it fights against the truth of Christ, it is anti-Christ. Whether it is a religious point of view, like Islam and Judiasm who say Christ is
not who He says He is, or if it is Christianity teaching false doctrines.
Jesus said to beware the leaven of the Pharisees. He was warning about how injecting some false doctrine would change the church. Paul warned about
false doctrines, and so on. Well, here we are, swimming in false doctrines spewed by the "Christian" church itself, the Great Whore that sitteth
upon the whole earth, Mystery Babylon is her name because she mixes the truth with a lie. There are agencies fighting for the truth, like the Bible
Answer Man program at www.equip.org, and the People to People ministries of Bob George, but the tide is too strong for the Great Whore.
Therefore, the average person doesn't have much of a chance of finding out the true love of God.
I suppose that's a reason to think of these times as like the times of Noah. In those days, if you were a young person, you would have to overcome
the hundreds of years of knowledge and wisdom of the old people who were living well past 600 years old. Not much chance, so God destroyed that
system to provide a way for the young to learn the truth. Now, we are so young by comparison that we don't have the time to get enough information
to find the truth because there is so much deception. Time for another beginning, or a final end.
