These days you find many people going to the churches and by the matter of fact you really don’t grasp why these people are flogging to the churches just because they hear some rash preachers.
I had this friend few months ago who happen to enter the gateways of the church because someone had preached him about Jesus relieving him of the pains and sorrow of this world.
Recently he just stopped going to the church. By having frequent chats with him, he got some nerve to tell me that he had been going to the church of Satan.
“You know, these Christians, they have been motivated by money to go to the churches. They expect to get rich and make a big time money out of the lies they sell from pulpit. They provide the common believers with the false ideas about Christianity,” he said.
To my surprise, that was not a new thing. This happened even thousand of years ago.
Christians don’t know to do good and to be good. You can imagine the fire of hatred, jealousy, raze and greed among these people. In fact they don’t know that this way they are practicing the real idol worship, because they worship there selfish desires and the devil within them. Whenever, people engage in works of ungodliness to satisfy their fleshly desires, it just ends up becoming idol worship. That is people worship their own body rather than it’s Creator. They have big time to serve their body in a way by disregarding godliness. Now these people are living idols able to move, feel and speak-standing against the will of god.
Satan is not just person. It is an ideal. It is the opposite of Godliness. Anyone can be satan. I remember my neighbors often scolding their naughty children in sarcastic tone, “You satan, can’t you just be a good boy, behave well and score a better marks.” Actually my neighbors are correct. Satan is anything and anyone that is said to destroy, lie, steal and kill.So satan is not just person it is lies and deception.Anyone who practices lies, theft and destruction is satan.
Hence Jesus said, “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”-John 8:44
Moreover, they practice magic, witchcraft and sorcery. It is not about casting spell in the name of demons. It is all about conspiring against neighbors. Play mind games, destroy others life, tell lies to get political supports and deceive others for the personal benefits. Dragging the other person’s legs when they are trying to do something worth. This is magic, witchcraft and sorcery. In conclusion, deceiving others is no less than magic, witchcraft and sorcery.
And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?-Acts 13:10
The sad part is- people start listening to deceptive promises and false hopes from these living idols who practice magic, witchcraft and sorcery. These people cast deception and lies in their own name to earn respect, money, luxury, reputation among many others.
They sell the truth for their benefit in a deceptive way.
Bible makes it clear.
“Buy truth but don’t sell it.” Proverbs 23:23
Saint Paul said, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.” -2 Corinthians 2:17
When Christians start selling truth and corrupt the word of GOD for their personnel benefit instead of service to GOD, then it ends up in idol worship, magic, witchcraft and sorcery.
