Fallen Babylon – Man-Made Organized Religion

When one follows the truth outlined in Scripture concerning the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it should become abundantly clear that organized religion and their man-made traditions and doctrines are leading the masses down the broad road to destruction.

From the great ancient tower of Babylon to the Church buildings of today, religious men have strived to attain “heaven” with their fleshly and carnal attempts to give themselves a name, rather than give all glory to God. As a result of their abominable religious attempts, He has confused their languages and scattered them throughout the world.

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and LET US MAKE A NAME FOR OURSELVES, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” – Genesis 11:4

The "perfect" church.
The "perfect" church.

In the confusion of organized religion today, men no longer fear God, nor give Him glory through His Son, Jesus Christ. Instead, in their vain endeavors, they worship in idolatrous man-made environments called churches, synagogues, mosques, temples, etc.

When Jesus Christ came to this earth, his focus and message was the Gospel of the Kingdom of God that the Father gave him, and to warn others to be aware of man’s false religion. He did not come to build churches made of stone, but to build his Ekklesia (living stones) that cannot be built with man’s hands.

The fallen Church system (Babylon) is a government where hired men control the masses in the façade of religion based on the selfish ambitions of the people all in the name of “Jesus.”

Babylon

Babylon is a controlled religious system where the masses continue to live and practice sin in their lives under man-made “grace” that their hirelings sell from their pulpits. The “gospel” they peddle is the opiate of the masses as it appeals to their flesh. It is quite easy to follow, but it is all wrapped up in a religious lie.

A harlot is someone who claims to be married to someone, but is in bed with someone else. This is the epitome of the false Babylonian Church system.

“FALLEN, FALLEN IS BABYLON THE GREAT, she who made all nations drink the WINE OF THE PASSION OF HER SEXUAL IMMORALITY.” – Revelation 4:8

Those within the religious church system drink the wine of immorality as they worship the image of Satan, which is a false religion based on the fleshly works of men. All Christian Churches, including their sects and denominations, the Roman Catholic Church, as well as ALL other mainstream religions are ALL co-mingled with the ways and systems of the world where men have taken full control rather than Jesus Christ.

Those among the Ekklesia are commanded to come out of the Babylonian system of church and no longer conform to her harlot ways.

The abomination of the harlot church system is that they accommodate sin. This is the “wine” that she serves to her minions, as they are continually deceived in perverting the ways and teachings of Jesus Christ. Those who love sin will love church where the blind lead the blind. The harlot system is about bragging about their “clean cups” as they pat themselves on the back doing their religious works of the flesh.

Her priests have done violence to my law and have profaned my holy things. They HAVE MADE NO DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE HOLY AND THE COMMON, neither have they taught THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE UNCLEAN AND THE CLEAN, and they have disregarded my Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them. – Ezekiel 22:26

"forms of godliness"
"forms of godliness"

The many forms of godliness, or the religious facades of pious elite do not fool God. The fact is there can be no victory to be found in the religious church system because the people continue to remain in their sinful lifestyles denying the power of Jesus Christ working in their lives to become new creations.

History Will Repeat Itself

The book of Daniel attests to the destruction of Babylon by those who took what was holy to God by filling holy things with the “wine” of the flesh, thereby defiling them.

King Belshezzar put on a great worldly feast for his lords, wives and concubines. He took the vessels that were sanctified to God and poured wine into them and brought them into an immoral and sinful environment.

THEN THEY BROUGHT IN THE GOLDEN VESSELS THAT HAD BEEN TAKEN OUT OF THE TEMPLE, THE HOUSE OF GOD IN JERUSALEM, and the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines drank from them. THEY DRANK WINE AND PRAISED THE GODS of gold and silver, bronze, iron, wood, and stone. – Daniel 5:3-4

The golden vessels were an allegory of the true treasures of God, but Belshazzar defiled and plundered them in honor of his carnality. The same thing is happening in a spiritual sense today where the vessels of God are being fed false doctrine (wine) and their souls are being taken captive within man-made organized religion.

When Belshazzar served the wine, a vision from God appeared before him that foretold judgment that would swiftly come upon him and his kingdom.

“Then from his presence the hand was sent, and this writing was inscribed. And this is the writing that was inscribed: MENE, MENE, TEKEL, and PARSIN. This is the interpretation of the matter: MENE, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; TEKEL, you have been weighed in the balances and found wanting; PERES, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.” – Daniel 5:24-28

God’s judgement was swift and the king was soon killed and an invading army overcame the kingdom of Babylon.

What is interesting is that in the book of Revelation there are references to Babylon falling twice. One has already happened in the past, and the other will be in the future.

I believe that the abominable spiritual religious state of organized religion is getting worse and worse as false shepherds promote and accommodate the sins of the people. The result is that the people no longer fear God and give His Son all the glory. This is spiritual Babylon, which is man’s false counterfeit religion.

Another angel, a second, followed, saying, “FALLEN, FALLEN is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality.” – Revelation 14:8

“FALLEN, FALLEN is Babylon the great!

She has become a dwelling place for demons,

a haunt for every unclean spirit,

a haunt for every unclean bird,

a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. – Revelation 18:2

Modern day Babylon is a religious system that mixes with the ways of the world instead of abiding solely in the principles of the Kingdom of God. The ways of the world are easy to follow, but the narrow way requires remaining faithful to Jesus Christ.

Those among the Ekklesia are vessels sanctified to Him. We must always be on guard not to become spoiled and defiled by the wines (false doctrines) of Babylon.

The Ekklesia portray the fruit of repentance no longer lusting after the flesh by looking like the world.

“Enter by the narrow gate. FOR THE GATE IS WIDE AND THE WAY IS EASY THAT LEADS TO DESTRUCTION, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. – Matthew 7:13-14

CAPTIVE- ated by Babylon

Those who truly desire to remain faithful to God will remain faithful to principles of the Kingdom of God and will not compromise no matter what the cost. The deception in our world today is becoming greater and greater and it is easy to be led astray by false shepherds. There is only One True Shepherd (Jesus Christ) and we must learn to recognize and take heed to his voice. Remaining faithful is the key.

The Old Testament is full of kings who no longer remained faithful to God by letting idolatry creep in through the false doctrines and lusts of the flesh from other worldly nations. This is sin and rebellion. When sin becomes rooted in the heart, the principles of Babylon will take precedence to God’s commands leading to captivity.

The kings of the earth did not believe,

nor any of the inhabitants of the world,

THAT FOE OR ENEMY COULD ENTER

THE GATES OF JERUSALEM.

This was for the sins of her prophets

and the iniquities of her priests,

who shed in the midst of her

the blood of the righteous. – Lamentations 4:12-13

And Judah was taken into exile in Babylon because of their BREACH OF FAITH. – 1 Chronicles 9:1

When you weigh and test what is happening within the Church system today, it is no different than the compromises of God’s people in the Old Testament. It should become clear that eating at the table of God and the table of demons is an invitation to practice sin. The moment we open ourselves up to Babylon, it gives the enemy power to take you captive eventually leading to exile.

Supping at the table of demons will influence you to despise, hate, scoff and mock the true Gospel of the Kingdom. The biggest crime against the true Gospel is never purging sin from your life through the power of Jesus Christ. The false gospel is accepting the deceitfulness of sin and believing God’s grace covers it without allowing Him to purge it from you.

BUT THEY KEPT MOCKING THE MESSENGERS OF GOD, DESPISING HIS WORDS AND SCOFFING at his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD rose against his people, until there was no remedy. – 2 Chronicles 36:16

People who are held captive in Babylon have demons that need to be purged. A vessel of God does not consume poisonous wine and follow the practices of Babylon.

Jesus Christ has come to set us free from religious bondage and the ways of the world. When we allow Him to fill us up with His Spirit, we have the strength and the ability to resist the lying spirits that entice us to walk after the flesh.

The ways of Babylon mix the holy and profane together. The world that is ruled by Satan is an allegory of Egypt. The Church system is friends of the world. Anyone who is friends with the world is an enemy of God and by default is captive in Babylon.Those in the Babylonian system not only have the demons of Egypt (world), but also the religious demons of Babylon as well.

And the king of Egypt did not come again out of his land, FOR THE KING OF BABYLON HAD TAKEN ALL THAT BELONGED TO THE KING OF EGYPT from the Brook of Egypt to the river Euphrates. – 2 Kings 24:7

Moreover, I will give all the wealth of the city, all its gains, all its prized belongings, and all the treasures of the kings of Judah into the hand of their enemies, WHO SHALL PLUNDER THEM AND SEIZE THEM AND CARRY THEM TO BABYLON. – Jeremiah 20:5

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel across sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him TWICE AS MUCH A CHILD OF HELL as yourselves. - Matthew 23:15

God’s Wrath Against Babylon

We are warned to flee from Babylon so that we will not partake in the plagues that will come and destroy her. The demons will come like locusts with the sole purpose of destroying the faith of the vessels of God. The fulfillment of this prophecy is happening right now as the Babylonian Church system has destroyed the true Gospel of the Kingdom by twisting the Word of God.

When God took the scales off of my eyes, I saw the abomination that it is. I had drunk the wine for most of my life, but heeded the call of Jesus Christ to come out of her. Now, when I look inside the harlot system, I am terrified for the people who are held captive within her.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE,

lest you take part in her sins,

lest you share in her plagues;

for her sins are heaped high as heaven,

and God has remembered her iniquities. – Revelation 18:4-5

The irony of Babylonian prayers: "We pray for so and so that they might turn from Satan's ways a come back to Church and learn from our esteemed pastor."
The irony of Babylonian prayers: "We pray for so and so that they might turn from Satan's ways a come back to Church and learn from our esteemed pastor."

We can no longer turn a blind eye to sin, nor fellowship with others who claim to follow Jesus Christ, but live in a lifestyle of sin. We are not to sup with these types of people who promote the false gospel of Babylon.

Those among the Ekklesia are vessels of the Holy Spirit and must not associate with the ways of Babylon that will only bring defilement.

The religious harlot system will be exposed and judged one day soon. All the gloss and glitter will be stripped away and the Lord will judge their nakedness (sin). Take heed!

YOUR NAKEDNESS SHALL BE UNCOVERED,

AND YOUR DISGRACE SHALL BE SEEN.

I will take vengeance,

and I will spare no one. – Isaiah 47:3

God desires to have our whole heart; therefore, it is imperative to desire to walk in holiness before Him. The wrath upon Babylon is coming.

Slaves of Babylon

Scripture describes Babylon as the “Mother of Harlots.” The mother produces children of the flesh. These children are born into the bondage of sin and the control of demons.

God is calling them to come out so they may have freedom in Jesus Christ.

Now this may be interpreted allegorically: these women are two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai, BEARING CHILDREN FOR SLAVERY; she is Hagar. Now Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia; she corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above IS FREE, and she is our mother. – Galatians 4:24-26

The false security of man-made religion boasts in their self-exaltation, but Babylon is a widow. All her followers are lost in their spiritual adultery. They will one day be shocked when the hear the words of the King of Kings,

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

Religious men throughout history have gone out on their own strength to attain God. They create for themselves their own buildings, religions, liturgies, creeds, rites, doctrines, etc.., all in an attempt to make a great name for themselves. To put it simply, pride is their downfall. Religious pride is characteristic of the flesh (old man) that has never died. This is the sin of idolatry of the self-seeking and self-serving religion that men have created for themselves. They are pompous in their blindness.

This is the EXULTANT city

that lived securely,

that said in her heart,

“I AM, AND THERE IS NO ONE ELSE.”

What a desolation she has become,

a lair for wild beasts!

Everyone who passes by her

hisses and shakes his fist. – Zephaniah 2:15

And the king answered and said, “Is not this great Babylon, which I HAVE BUILT BY MY MIGHTY POWER as a royal residence and for the GLORY OF MY MAJESTY?” – Daniel 4:30

As she GLORIFIED HERSELF and lived in luxury,

so give her a like measure of torment and mourning,

since in her heart she says,

‘I SIT AS A QUEEN,

I am no widow,

and mourning I shall never see.’ – Revelation 18:7

  • Can you see the pride of the flesh that exudes from these above verses?
  • Are you a part of the Babylonian religious system that is a dwelling place of demons where the spirit of the antichrist is worshipped?

The spirit of the antichrist is in charge of the man-made churches of the world. The people go inside of these buildings and worship the image of the dragon that makes himself as "God." They drink Babylonian wine that says their "God" “loves” with no judgement. The slaves of Babylon live in ignorant bliss drunk off the wine that the hireling “kings” serve to them.

Many people will be led to destruction for their lack of knowledge because the end result is no fear of the Lord. Living and walking after the flesh looking just like Egypt (world) is the way of the beast. The way of the beast is never coming to the knowledge of the truth. The characteristics of Babylonian slaves is that their motivation and zeal is for self-esteem, approval and gain based on their fleshly “discernment.”

TO THE DEGREE THAT SHE HAS GLORIFIED HERSELF AND LIVED IN LUXURY, inflict on her that much torment and misery. – Revelation 18:7, Berean Study Bible

The Kingdom of God (Spiritual Jerusalem) contains the true Ekklesia of God. The kingdom of Babylon contains the false church system that is a storehouse for tares.

The man-made religious system is a millstone that will be tossed into the sea of demons and darkness. Unfortunately, there seems to be few that are walking the narrow path fearing God and desiring to follow His commandments. Many are drinking the wine of the perverted gospel. Time is running short and the door of mercy will soon close.

I plead with you to ask God to reveal the religious deception that is going on within the Church system.

  • Are you willing to walk out in faith and trust only in Jesus Christ to show you the way?

You may have to risk your friendships, family, approval of men.

The fire that is to come is for all of those who willfully choose to continue to drink the wine of deception that flows out of Babylon.

The False Christ’s of Babylon and the Christian Church

A Christian is term used by billions around the globe to mean that they are part of man-made organized religion. Most believe that they worship God and His Son, Jesus Christ, but they are deceived as their flesh desires to worship another “Jesus” that Paul warned about in the New Testament. Their "Jesus" has been created from the corrupted minds of their carnal flesh. They do not have the oneness of spirit, but are among the thousands of harlot denominations.

I am afraid, however, that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s craftiness, YOUR MINDS WILL BE LED ASTRAY FROM YOUR SIMPLE AND PURE DEVOTION TO CHRIST. For if someone comes and proclaims a JESUS OTHER THAN THE ONE we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit than the One you received, or a different gospel than the one you accepted, you put up with it way too easily.

- 2 Corinthians 11:3-4

The invasion of the Early Ekklesia and its apostasy are attested in the New Testament. The antichrist spirit took a hold, and the false mutation from ekklesia to what is called church persecuted the true followers of Christ.

Back then, no one heeded the warnings of Paul, today it is no different. The Early Ekklesia of Asia ALL became churches of men who forsook pure devotion to Jesus Christ for the doctrines of Babylon.

I have written to the CHURCH about this, but Diotrephes, who LOVES TO BE FIRST, will not accept our instruction. – 1 John 1:9

I know that after my departure, ferocious wolves will come in among you and WILL NOT SPARE THE FLOCK. – Acts 20:29

You are aware that ALL WHO ARE IN ASIA turned away from me, among whom are Phygelus and Hermogenes. – 2 Timothy 1:15

The modern church believes that the great falling away is some future event, but fails to understand it is them, happening right through their front doors. It happened right in front of the eyes of Jesus and Paul too. (2 Timothy 4:10-11) (John 6:66)

Man-made religion poisons the Word of God. Truth cannot be learned correctly in Babylon because ALL "truth" has been leavened with lies. The slaves of Babylon are carnal babes ruled by hireling ministers and teachers.

The true treasures and true doctrine of God are not found in people with lazy spirits and carnal eyes. Seeking truth will violate the false doctrines of Babylon that are demanded to be followed without question.

It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is TO SEARCH THINGS OUT. – Proverbs 25:2

His disciples remembered that it was written, “ZEAL FOR YOUR HOUSE WILL CONSUME ME.” – John 2:17

Babylon is about knowing some of the Word; the Kingdom of God is about knowing the sum of the Word. Knowing in part with exclusion is the way of man-made religion that boasts in their carnal "wisdom."

The SUM of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever. – Psalm 119:160

Those among the Ekklesia have Jesus Christ as their Head. They have no desire to be esteemed by men.

Anyone who desires a following and the drawing in of religious crowds to themselves are not disciples, nor are they followers of Jesus Christ. Those who are in Jesus Christ are considered fools to the religious elite. The Babylonian system worships an image that desires the esteem and accolades of men who zealously desire make names for themselves to attain "God."

He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces HE WAS DESPISED, and WE ESTEEMED HIM NOT. – Isaiah 53:3

But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; GOD CHOSE WHAT IS WEAK IN THE WORLD TO SHAME THE STRONG – 1 Corinthians 1:27

Who is the Head of your Church/denomination?

If you answered this question, then you are unfortunately part of the man driven religious Babylonian system called Church.

Who is the Head in the Kingdom of God?

See results without voting
That's right, I am your Shepherd now.
That's right, I am your Shepherd now.

Every Church denomination has a different name as their Head, but the Kingdom of God has only one name. That is the distinction between those who are the slaves of Babylon and the followers of Jesus Christ.

Who is your Head?

Who you decide to be your Head is whom you put your allegiance to.

The choice is yours.

PandN- Great article that get right to the point. All churches need to do is read Revelation chapter 18 to get a good look at themselves. However, churches don't see themselves as the harlot, nor do they accept the idea that they are part of the Babelon system. I was once.many years ago, caught up within that system until I began to to realize just who corrupted the church system is and who power hungery the clergy can be. What change me is my desire to understand God's true word so I began to really study for myself with an open heart. This lead me to realize just how wrong the churches (harlot) system is. Not just one or two different denominations ,but ALL of them. This inclues the non-denominational and ministries. And I believe the worst of the bunch are TV ministries. Now the harlot system can come into your livingroom. I am very happy with my relationship with our Father in heaven and our Lord Jesus Christ. My focus in study is the Kingdom of God just as Jesus instrucked us to do in Matthew 6:33. I hope many other will read this fine article your have here and let the words really sink in.

God Bless.

You have stated very well what was, what is, and what is to come. Most everyone will not deny the past. When showing people that they are on the same broad path to destruction as those in the past, that is when the rationalization begins. How can so many smart educated people be wrong? Answer: The same way they were in the past and will be in the future. This Hub covers all the bases, good job.

Aaron,

I was just booted off another blog for bringing up the trinity in my comment. I had brought it up before on that blog and evidently, the blogger had had enough. In his note telling me he would not post any more of my comments he said that he "cherished the trinity because he believed it was true."

The corporate church will not allow their empires to be challenged. I have been kicked off of many blogs for speaking the truth against the harlot church and false doctrines.

Think about it, after Jesus made his famous "hypocrite" speech in the Temple, what affect has it had on the Jewish church? None! They still don't get it.

The same will happen with the harlot church today and in the future, they will cling to their power and lies until Jesus returns and exposes them for what they are.

When you think about it there is no where today that you can go and speak as a disciple of Christ. A true student of the cross will be shown many things that professing Christians don't want to hear. As our former doctrines and religion is replaced with the light of God's word we see things differently. God has turned them over to do what they want to do.

I was them, I no more deserve to be shown His light than anyone else but He has chosen to call and I/we have decided to listen and follow. Time has shown me that we are sheep and need to talk to sheep. The gifts He gives us to build up the body are for sheep, not goats/tares. We need to quit going back into Babylon, and just be ready when a stray sheep wanders out because they are beginning to hear His voice calling them.

Very few of the people saying that the institutional church is wrong actually believe it. Follow them and you will see they have left nothing of Babylon behind. Leaving the building is the first of hundreds of steps on the narrow path. The religious blogs are full of shadows everywhere because of all the worldly religious thing that block the actual light. Some are darker than others. In Him there is no darkness.

@Rich Kelley -

You are so right!

The majority of those who blog or write books about "corporate church" and its not being scriptural still cling to false doctrines and traditions.

I'm now finding quite a few men that are still in the profession of paid pastor who are preaching "concern" for a "corporate church" model.

These men are trying to play both sides in an effort to promote their brand of corporate "lite" church in an effort to hold on to those who are beginning to see the truth and are trying to leave.

Graceinus,

The real deception of the harlot system is that they mix the holy and profane. They love to call it "christian," which is label for redeeming something that is profane. They will take something that is of pagan origin and "take it back for Jesus." The irony in all of it is, how can you take back something for God when it was ever of Him in the first place?

The Church system must oppose the principles of the Kingdom of God for it to operate. Ask someone who is part of the church system what the principles of the Kingdom of God are and I'll bet they will not have a clue what you are talking about. Their "Jesus" is their esteemed pastor.

My Jesus has said who the greatest in the Kingdom would be; therefore, I desire to follow his principles rather than the Church system.

Neil,

I believe that a Church minion will not see the deception of the Trinity doctrine unless they come out of the harlot church system. Many, if not most of the doctrine of demons piggy back off of the false Trinity doctrine. As you know, I used to be a staunch Trinitarian until God purged the doctrine that was etched into my mind.

The Trinitarian mind is proud one and must be broken by the Holy Spirit before it can see the light.

What we do may fall on many deaf ears, but it is still worth it if even only one comes to the truth.

I can attest that God used those among the Ekklesia as causal agents in encouraging me to seek the truth for myself and allow the spirit of Christ to show me the deception that is tied to the belief of the Trinity.

The harlot system will never change, but there is still hope for those to heed the call to come out of her.

Rich,

There is really nothing new under the sun is there?

Man has continued in their rebellion against God wanting to do things their own way. The Old Testament is there for us to read for a reason as history attests to those who partook of the systems of Egypt and Babylon.


graceinus 15 months ago from those of the Ekklesia

PandN- Even though I left the church system many years ago and had enouugh understanding to realize it was part of the harlot system it still took a lot more personal study of God's word before I began to realize and understand the gospel of the Kingdom of God. Most if not all churches fail to teach the gospel of the Kingdom, which was Jesus Christ main focus throughout His entire ministry. Over 90 times throughout the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John Jesus mentions the Kingdom of God (heaven) and yet, most often, you never hear the clergy mention it in churchers. The few times you may hear it in a church setting it is twisted or out of context. The chatolic church is one good example, because they claim to be God's Kingdom on earth. How can any church who claim to be the Kingdom of God on earth pray to the "Mother Mary" be anything be satanic. Knowing full well that nothing in the bible require a follower of Jesus to pray to Mary. Or, in the case of the Mormons who claim that Jesus and satan are brothers. Again, NOTHING in the bible would even implies, suggest or state that that is true. Their " book of mormons" make no referrence to Jesus teaching of the Kingdom of God like it does in the Holy Bible. Then you have the JW who have a so called Holy Scripture (Bible) where the word grace can not be found within it's pages. So, how can they even begin to learn about Grace through Faith? Which without the knowledge of His grace makes it even more difficult to understand the Kingdom of God. They do mention the Kingdom inn sermons but hey have such a skewed understanding of it true nature. SDA have baptiamal vows which contain 14 conditions a person must agree with before baptism INTO their church. Tithing to help finance their church is one of the conditions contain in the baptismal vows of their church. Where in the bible is there a requirement for a individual to agree to tithe as a condition to be baptized. These 14 points within the baptismal vows must be agreed upon by the individual or the person will not be baptized. Jesus never set that kind of standard for baptism. And yet, the SDA require it to "join" their church. You will hardly hear any mention of the Kingdom of God in their teaching and what little you might hear is way out of context. And each of these churches I've mentioned so far are 501 c3 Tax status. And there are many more out their that are just like em. This is just a small example of the harlot systems of churches. Greed is their main focus. In 2012 the catholic church received 80 BILLION dollars. 30 BILLION of that is profits from business investments. And the mormon church is almost as bad. But their profits are also in the BILLIONS. Their making a profit off of God's word. They sell the word of God for a price. And their members are too blind to see the greed of their own church leaders and clergies.

There is NOTHING holy about a church building. Nothing. Man has corrupted everything he has touched.

I hope many will come out of the harlot system and see it for what she really is. I hope they will seek the Kingdom of God like Jesus instructs us to do in Matthew 6:33. Become a disciple of Jesus Christ and receive the blessings of His Kingdom.

Graceinus,

But SEEK FIRST the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. - Matthew 6:33

Coming out and abandoning the worldly system and following the narrow path will put our priorities in direct opposition to Babylon. We no longer put ourselves under the rulership of human government that is apart from the rule of God.

All the way back in the Old Testament we can see the result man's rulership versus God's.

There is a way that SEEMS RIGHT TO MAN, but its end is the way to death. - Proverbs 14:12

I know, O LORD, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is NOT IN MAN who walks to direct his steps. - Jeremiah 10:23

Those who are part of man's religious system ruled by men cannot enter the Kingdom of God unless they come out of the harlot system.

The door is through Jesus Christ that requires belief, repentance and obedience to the principles of the Kingdom by serving God according to His rule, not man's. We must seek after the righteousness of God that brought Jesus Christ to the cross and rose him from the grave.

The Kingdom of God exists where sin is recognized, hated and done away with through the spirit of Christ. To leave Babylon requires a hatred of the mixing of what is holy and profane.

Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and LOOKS BACK is fit for the kingdom of God.” - Luke 9:62

This is the epitome of spiritual Babylon. Those within the Church system puts their hands to the plow, then look back to the ways and systems of the world to get things done; this is the broad road to destruction. The church system creates religious tares who are unfit for the Kingdom of God. That is why Jesus said,

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, but THE ONE WHO DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER who is in heaven. 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 7:21-23

That is why it is so imperative to come out of the harlot system before it is too late.

The religious system of man, which you gave some examples of are ALL under the rulership of ecclesiastical men instead of Jesus Christ. They are all build upon self seeking and self serving men who oppose Mathew 6:33 by their actions.
