Going to Church is a Religious Trap
Organized religion comprises of people, “Churchians” who desire to be led by men with ecclesiastical titles. They are the lords, or ruling class of the congregation who are blind to who is the one true Lord. This system allows the satanic lust for power to manifest among men who corrupt Biblical love and truth for their own personal gain.
But they kept silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about WHO WAS THE GREATEST. And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” - Mark 9:34-35
Who is First?
Unfortunately, those who insist on being first, demanding to be paid are not “last of all.” They have not become the least, but make servants (minions) for themselves. These are the self-serving entitled chieftains who use a sub-class group of people as slave members called "Churchians” who worship "God" in the idolatry of organized religion.
The church system is NOT led by the Holy Spirit because Jesus Christ is not their Lord and leader. They allow a hireling to lead them into premeditated man-made traditions and endeavors void of the leading of the Holy Spirit. The problem of the people are their complete ignorance on having an unnecessary man-made mediator between them and God. The absurdity of allowing a “more-excellent-person” who is hired to make a living off the free gift of the Gospel is an oxymoron and has no place in the Kingdom of God.
I have written something to the ekklesia, but Diotrephes, WHO LIKES TO PUT HIMSELF FIRST, does not acknowledge our authority. – 3 John 1:9
The Antichrist spirit manifests in those who desire to be first among men. This is their most prominent characteristic feature.
The man-made church system is spun by the Antichrist spirit into denominations and buildings that take more precedence than the name of Jesus Christ. The “Churchians” within them are in direct opposition the pure Christian faith. In fact, they oppose anything that is Spirit led and persecute those who do not conform to their denominational mold.
Think hard about this next question.
- Are you being led by the Holy Spirit, or by men?
There are many men who assume supremacy over others and strive to give themselves and their church a name. They strive to be first and advertise in their communities to draw people through their doors. They understand that as more people are drawn to the building, more money will flow in. All they have to do is tickle their ears and sell them through their sophistry. Gains in membership gives them a more preferential and revered position among the ranks of “Churchianity.”
If you are a “Churchian,” it is important to understand that accepting and allowing the spirit of Diottrephes will bring spiritual death leading to God’s wrath. God does not protect those who are under the guidance and authority of salaried mediators, but only those who are solely led by the Holy Spirit. You can choose to either listen to men, or to God, it is that simple.
It is a futile attempt to come together to worship the one true God under the organization and authority of men. The assembly of the Ekklesia are Spirit led, it is not organized by men, nor by the one man show called senior pastor.
Any assembly organized by men is of the Antichrist, as opposed to the Ekklesia who are the assembly led by the Holy Spirit. Walking in faith is not a premeditated endeavour, but complete reliance on the guidance of the Holy Spirit without the urge to formally organize in a liturgy of man-made ordinances/ membership requirements.
He said to them, “Then RENDER TO CAESAR THE THINGS THAT ARE CAESAR’S, and to God the things that are God’s.” - Luke 20:25
In likewise fashion, we must render to the Antichrist the things that are the Antichrist’s, and to God the things that are God’s.
At the top of organized religion is Satan. Satan uses men as a directors over the people who abuse Scripture by twisting it to fuel their carnal agendas. The ambition of organized religion revolves around the monetary. To become organized requires financing; therefore, fund raising and tithing becomes the focal point of any activity. This is no different than any other charitable organization, or business venture. The corporate identity called church is the product of carnal man that creates “Churchians” who promote the wares of the Antichrist spirit. In contrast, the product of the Holy Spirit are Christians who desire to lead people into the Kingdom of God, not into man-made buildings.
The Ekklesia understand that when the work of the Kingdom of God needs to be carried out, it is of no consequence whether there are finances or not. The citizens of the Kingdom of God do not rely on the hearts of carnal men in their futile pursuits to make a name for themselves because there is no such thing as a financial problem in God's Kingdom. The only problem to consider is whether God desires that particular work to be done.
Doing God’s work is about giving, not taking. God’s work is never about fund raising for a religious brand-name. There is no examples in the New Testament where money was collected among the Ekklesia to finance the work of God. It is the work of the Antichrist that demands finances before anything can be done because the monetary is their god.
Any work of God is possible, but Satan’s work proceeds from contributions, sponsors, donations, tithes, financing, etc… these are the sales tactics of the religious synod who love to “drill for oil” first rather than in faith heed God’s instructions.
Beware of anyone who says, “If it wasn’t for your generous contributions, I wouldn’t be able to do God’s work.” This is not God’s work, but about advancing some man’s ego.
Career Out of the "Gospel"
The Christian, who is the citizen of the Kingdom of God is not a taker, but a giver. They do not focus on the temporal, but the eternal. They do not require someone with a man-made title to tell them what to do before they do the work of the Lord. It is simply about being obedient and using the gift God has given them anyplace and anywhere. It is important to understand that God NEVER calls anyone into a full-time job within organized religion making a living from the Gospel. Those who do are canal “Churchian” hirelings desire to be paid to preach and demand money for it by twisting Scripture for personal gain.
- Did you know that all Scripture that is used to "support" a salaried position in the body of Christ has been twisted out of context?
The words, full-time ministry is a crock, because it deceptively means within organized religion that some “special” person is devoting all their time for the “work of the Lord,” but requires a salary to do so. These people betray the Lord by making money from His knowledge that He freely gives. They are traitors to the pure Christian faith who desire to gain in the temporal, but they will lose in eternity.
Millions of people attend organized religion and sit quietly in their pews and pay to listen to a spiritless salaried minister about what "God" is doing in their midst. The pew warmer does not understand that God is the one who organizes His people. When man attempts to do it, it looks like organized religion called church with titled clergy running the show. All organizing of these men fall into the system of the Antichrist where people desire to be led by ecclesiastical men instead of the Holy Spirit.
Many are called, but few are chosen because of man’s desire to be known. The spirit of the Antichrist desires to be great, be recognized, wanting to stand out and make a name for themselves. No one can enter the Kingdom of God without knowing that they are small and unworthy and can do no good without the Holy Spirit working through them. They understand that when men take note of their talents and abilities, it is a trap of Satan trying to caress their ego. To truly worship God in spirit and truth is in humility, not the accolades of men. God does not respect the ego who desires applause on the podiums of men, but would rather be in the secret and quiet place.
He must increase, but I MUST DECREASE. - John 3:30
Anything that is done within the framework of denominations and organized religion is a creation of man that is void of the Holy Spirit. The framework of organized religion demands finances and leadership of salaried men. A true Christian who is filled with the Holy Spirit is in unity with the Jesus Christ and His Body. They become under the direct leadership of the one true Shepherd, Jesus Christ, not some self-proclaimed leader who is part of the regiment of the Antichrist.
For we are NOT, like so many, PEDDLERS OF GOD’S WORD, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ. – 2 Corinthians 2:17
And constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, IMAGINING THAT GODLINESS IS A MEANS OF GAIN. – 1 Timothy 6:5
Those who make money from the knowledge of Jesus Christ are only those within organized religion. You must avoid this, or it will cost you in eternity. This is the trap of Satan to lure the masses in to organized “Churchianity” to become a “Churchian.” Those who are among the Ekklesia are Christians who do not focus on earning money, but the eternal spiritual things.
The Constantine system of church, which is organized religion is a trap. Get out while you still can.

When the church institution is weighed and tested with the blueprint of the New Testament, it fails miserably. Their system is completely contrary to the record of the Apostles and Jesus Christ.
