Going to Church will Lead to Bondage

The “Churchian” is dependent upon a closed religious system called church. They attend on a weekly basis, sit on pews and accept whatever their pastor, or the religious official feeds them. The tithe is incorporated into the programming to finance their man-made kingdoms, which has a name on the sign on the outside of their building. They will tell their minions that there is no covering, or protection outside their umbrella of their four walls. Anyone who attempts to leave will do so out of fear as the noose will tighten on anyone who is in defiance to their ways.

Once someone has sold their soul to cookie cutter religion called church, they become enslaved in the bondage of human works full of human traditions. The goal is to convert others to conform to organized religion. Once a new member is created, they become a servant to the institution, obligated to commit their time and finances to the cause bowing down to the leaders of the constituencies, the “kings” within the four walls.

And IN THEIR GREED THEY WILL EXPLOIT YOU WITH FALSE WORDS. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. – 2 Peter 2:3

The church minion will be told how to worship and by giving sacrifices to their god, which is a corporate denominational entity. If anyone attempts to defy their ideology, they are deemed “cursed,” or an outcast.

But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, HE HAS DENIED THE FAITH AND IS WORSE THAN AN UNBELIEVER. – 1 Timothy 5:8

The “Churchian” is coerced to tithe to receive “blessing,” but neglects their own household for the man-made “temple of God.”

You were bought with a price; DO NOT BECOME BONDSERVANTS OF MEN. – 1 Corinthians 7:23

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and DO NOT SUBMIT AGAIN TO A YOKE OF SLAVERY. – Galatians 5:1

So IF THE SON SETS YOU FREE, YOU WILL BE FREE INDEED. – John 8:36

What many fail to realize is that Christ already has paid the price, it is a travesty that so many put themselves into spiritual and financial bondage within the churches of men.

A true follower of Christ must abandon the traditions of man and cast aside all the loudmouth pulpit peacocks who are practicing, teaching and preaching a false gospel perpetuating counterfeit Christianity. All those who support and conform to the ideology of organized religion are not a part of the Kingdom of God.

It is unfortunate that the “Churchian” is brainwashed to believe that they are doing the work of God by making weekly offerings and sacrifices into the coffers of man-made temples so their salaried mediators can make a living of the backs of the people.

For there is one God, and THERE IS ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MEN, THE MAN CHRIST JESUS! - Timothy 3:5

The salaried church officials have their minions believe that they are their “covering,” but this is another word for bondage to keep the sheeple deceived and obedient to their leadership. They will say, “If you do not tithe, you will not receive blessing from God” and twist Scripture verses to promote their self-centered agendas.

These false ministers will say that they had a dream, vision, or they heard from God as fodder for the sheeple. They make stuff up from their vain imaginations to control the masses, as they run to the trough lapping up their every word. They have no understanding that careful study of God’s inspired word has revealed all the instruction there is to know for God’s people to follow.

The kingdoms of men called church are attempting to imitate the abolished temple system of the Old Testament. What they call the “house of God” is a building/ tabernacle that they have named for themselves. They call the stage with the pulpit upon it the “altar.” They focus on the tithe that was part of the old Levitical system that pertained to the ceremonial Law.

They deem anyone who does not adhere to the practices of their temple system as “divisive” and could be put on the chopping block to be cast out from their “blessing” and “covering,” a concept that is foreign to Scripture. All these instituted practices are the way of Cain, and God deems their "worship" as an abomination to Him.

The self-appointed church hirelings will preach being under grace, but in practice they put their minions under the Law that includes perpetuating the traditions of men falsely believing that they are satisfying God within a vacuum of hype, entertainment and paranormal experiences in their vain attempts to make a name for themselves with as many fans and fanatics as they can.

Within this portrait of imitation Christianity there are no disciples of Christ to be found. Although they attempt to associate with our Saviour, they follow after ecclesiastical men instead. They make the word of God of no effect. Their false form of “unity” is an ecumenical agenda of uniting all forms of “Christianity” in biblical error inherited from the system of Constantine.

Whenever man wants to be in charge, it is NOT of the Holy Spirit because it does not let Christ be the Head.

A true follower of Christ has the freedom to think and study the word of God for themselves without salaried officials getting in the way. To continue in the carnal self-centeredness of man’s traditions is death and bondage that negates the love of the Father, life in Christ and the liberty of the Holy Spirit.

The Church system creates converts, but the Gospel creates disciples.
The Church system creates converts, but the Gospel creates disciples.
Plastic fantastic!
Plastic fantastic!

The only way for someone to be brainwashed with religious garbage is to enter through the doors of a denominational church. Once they are inside, this is where the indoctrination takes place using coercion, peer-pressure, physiological tactics that create altered spiritual states by setting different moods, hype, lighting, sounds, etc… to create the desired hypnotic effect leading the gullible to an “altar call” to recite a canned prayer to sell your soul to the institutionalized churchy “Jesus.”

Once the pew warming church minions are created, they will be filled with false teaching that if they do not attend, and tithe at certain predetermined times, God’s judgement will come, or Satan will be allowed to attack them because of their disobedience that could lead to the removal of the hireling’s “covering” over them unless they conform to the institutional mold.

You see, churches don’t make disciples of Christ, but they create a Romanized, pagan, organizational, man-made pew warming minions that violate the purpose God has intended for His people through Christ.

The church system is easy to discern once the believer studies the word of God allowing the Holy Spirit to lead them to truth. Organized religion is a clever deception that depends upon their “sacred cow” Scripture verses that they twist to prove their man-made doctrines.

The famous “Churchian” statements are, “the Holy Spirit has revealed to me,” “Jesus spoke to me and said this,” or “God told me to tell you.”

Those who know the word of God, already know God’s message and instructions for His people. Subjective opinions and personal experiences MUST be evaluated through God’s Word. Many fail to understand that everything with the Constantine church system is simply the practice of channeling religious spirits and using the carnal imaginations of men who mix the holy and profane together to hop up the masses. Spiritual “truths” are pawned from the imaginations of men that are far removed from the truth of the Bible. The epitome of the counterfeit church system is the sole reliance on false doctrine, teachings, prophets and ministers, but God has sent them a strong delusion. The bogus religious bologna that they spew from the pulpit is crafty sophistry, and many fall for their seductions.

It is the personal responsibly of every follower of Christ to love the truth that is written in God’s word and allow the Holy Spirit to teach them the things of the way of Christ and the Apostles. There is no other way to maturing in Christ. Any another way by default is a wide opening to accepting and receiving a strong delusion.

The manifestation of the strong delusion are people who desire to make a name for themselves, and the results are named church buildings that are charities used to serve the ambitions of men that serve and appeal to the flesh. They validate all of their activities based on their subjective opinions and desire accolades of approval, acceptance and appreciation from men. They do these things all at the expense of truth with no understanding of God’s eternal purpose that can only be done through Christ.

The striking dissimilarity between the institutional church system and the genuine ekklesia can be found right on the pages of Scripture, it jumps out, but most don’t read it, or are blind to seeing it, as they prefer the religious best sellers that their pastor promotes instead.

The ekklesia who are built by Christ follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, not men.

The church system is cursed and is a place of bondage and spiritual death.

And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. And he said to it, “MAY NO ONE EVER EAT FRUIT FROM YOU AGAIN.” And his disciples heard it. – Mark 11:13-14

And Peter remembered and said to him, “Rabbi, look! THE FIG TREE THAT YOU CURSED HAS WITHERED.” – Mark 11:21

And JESUS ENTERED THE TEMPLE AND DROVE OUT ALL WHO SOLD AND BOUGHT IN THE TEMPLE, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. – Matthew 21:12

Christ destroyed the temple system with all the priesthood and everything else that came with it. Pious religious men still want to erect temples and create man-made systems to attain and contain God.

Christ did not come to reform the temple system, but he abolished it.

All churches of men are cursed, they are a corrupt commercial corpses that are a blight upon the land. There will be no revival in the church-state system. It will never happen within a group that makes the gospel a product of commerce owned by the State (501c3 status) practicing a Constantine system of “worship.”

You were bought at a price; DO NOT BECOME SLAVES OF MEN. – 1 Corinthians 7:23

This will be a hard pill to swallow for the church goer, but we are to worship God in spirit and in truth. We are to worship God not the way we want to, but the way He wants us to. Any other way is a Cain offering that God rejects.

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I NEVER KNEW YOU; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WORKERS OF LAWLESSNESS.’ – Matthew 7:22-23

Did you know that the the faith in the NT spread through a multitude of humble, ordinary believers whose names have been long forgotten, NOT through man-named church buildings?

PandN- Another great article here. I wonder if people understand the difference between a disciple of the ekklesia and a member of a church. I think this is a very important aspect between the ekklesia vs. church. Understanding what a true disciple of Jesus Christ is may be the key element in understanding the difference. You don't find disciples in churches. If people clearly understood what discipleship really means it may change their views of churches. If more people understood, then they could see the evidence that churches have never made disciples.

God bless.

You speak a lot of truth my brother but many will not listen. They are blinded by twisted Bible verses taught by false greedy leaders whose pockets are their main concern. Many have led the sheep astray and they will answer to that. Great hub!

26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. 27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and YOU HAVE NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO TEACH YOU; but as HIS ANOINTING TEACHES YOU ABOUT ALL THINGS, and is TRUE and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

I am seriously considering going to a different "church" every Sunday morning with some signs saying, "Harlot Church," Hypocrites at Work," etc. I want to give out pamphlets with truths about the false church and the hypocrites that run them.

I may even go inside the building before and after the services to confront the leadership about their false doctrines.

Who thinks I'll be escorted out or have the police called?

Isn't that what happened to Jesus and the Apostles when they taught in the Temple and Synagogs?

Should we be as bold as our Savior and the Apostles, or do we sit by and watch as these false teachers continue to lead souls down the wide path of destruction?

If we know the truth, and can adequately speak it and defend it, are we not obligated to speak out on behalf of Jesus as His ambassadors?

Who will step up to defend those who are being deceived?

A picture in this hub that says "false gospels create false converts".

It should read "False gospels create converts". I say this because there is no mandate or guidance to go out and create converts. The example is to go, and as you go in the world, preach the gospel, make Disciples. Today the convert process is well underway on the mountain.

So Jesus answered and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done.

The Mountain, the tabernacle in the wilderness and then later the temple is where God would show up. Moses went and met God on the mountain. The Israel’s lived/encamped around the mountain. People would leave their homes and stand at the foot of the mountain. Moses was given the directions on how to build the tabernacle while on the mountain. Rahab told men she had helped to go hide on the mountain for three days. Elijah stood on the mountain before the Lord. The mountain like the temple is where God use to show up and would reside with His people.

When Christ cursed the fig tree that is used as a symbol of Israel, He did it because God had chosen them to be a light to the world. God did many wonderful things with His people and yet when Christ looked at His people there was no fruit. The religious people of the time minus the costumes they wore looked exactly like the rest of the world. No fruit is not acceptable in the Kingdom of God when the primary purpose is to produce fruit for others to consume.

Christ when He spoke with the “women at the well” was talking to the other denomination that existed at the time. Just like today, the custom then was you didn’t speak with the other denomination. Jesus broke the tradition of men and let the women from Samaria know that a time was coming when believers would have to worship in spirit and truth. Today there is no mountain, there is no temple however there are little temples all over the earth that people are convinced house the God they believe in. Jesus destroyed the temple will you by faith cast the mountain into the sea?

John 4:21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.

Graceinus,

I no longer use the word church in a positive context anymore, and as you know already, it is a corrupt word. The word itself creates double-mindedness, that is why it is important to make clear distinction between the two.

It is the same with the word Christian. The "Churchian" hijacks the word to make it mean a church attending member of a denomination.

A Christian is a disciple of Jesus Christ who follow His leading.

You can pound this home to an indoctrinated minion over and over again, but it seems they still cannot grasp the distinctions. All we are called to do is speak truth and let God do the rest because He is the only one that can remove the veil of deception from their eyes.

Faithful Daughter,

You are right that many will not listen because the message of the Kingdom of God is offensive to the pious religious world that attend steepled man-made tombs.

The Kingdom of God attracts the meek and humble.

Neil,

If God has called you to spiritual Babylon to call these people to repentance, then I would take Jesus' advice.

I am sending you out like sheep among wolves.Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. - Matthew 10:16

The Church system breeds wolves. Wolves travel in packs and gang up on innocent prey.

The snakes on the other hand, are subtle and shrewd creatures that will blend in with their surroundings until the perfect opportunity arises.

I would encourage you to seek God about the modus operandi, as many have run out too quickly before the Commander and Chief gives the thumbs up and a land mine takes their legs out.

I am not saying that you are not prepared, but I myself have been pondering these things as well.

I believe that taking on the kingdoms of men requires shrewdness with preparedness. Without God, we are weak and defenseless in our own strength, but in Him the possibilities are endless just as the lions mouths were shut with Daniel.

Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles. When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. - Matthew 10:17-19

The characteristics of the snake and dove are meant to keep those out of trouble while they are in the vulnerability of preaching truth in the world. When sheep walk towards wolves, it seems like a stupid thing to do; therefore, when they pounce with their accusations, we are to be as innocent as a doves so that they do not have anything that may ruin our reputations. Believe me they are relentless in this area as it is their specialty.

"Snakes" know how to get out of the way and hide under the Rock (Jesus Christ) instead of facing unnecessary persecution.

Here are some examples:

When Pharaoh heard of it, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharaoh and stayed in the land of Midian. And he sat down by a well. - Exodus 2:15

By faith he left Egypt, not being afraid of the anger of the king, for he endured as seeing him who is invisible. - Hebrews 11:27

So Michal let David down through the window, and he fled away and escaped. - 1 Samuel 9:12

But I was let down in a basket through a window in the wall and escaped his hands. - 2 Corinthians 11:23

And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, constrained by the Spirit, not knowing what will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and afflictions await me. - Acts 20:22-23

If we are prepared as you say, by being able to adequately speak it and defend it, then we should heed the instructions of the Commander-in-Chief on what He wants us to do. I'm with you and hear you, we need to step up on the call of the Ekklesia to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom just as Stephen did.

Rich,

You are correct. The Church system creates converts, but the Gospel creates disciples. I have now put this caption under the picture that you referenced.

Thank-you so much for commenting on the verses concerning the fig tree as they are very insightful. You additions to the theme are greatly appreciated.

God Bless.
