Do You Submit to the Corrupt Church System?

Updated on December 24, 2016

The counterfeit church system creates members who are solely dependent upon their ordained ministers to hear from God for them. They sit, listen and nod their heads while being spoon fed doctrine that fits to their denominational templates. The members conform to a tithing system to finance the lavish kingdoms of their pastor-king and his entourage. The cookie-cutter saints would not have the protection within this kingdom unless they bowed to the whims of their king. Being a bondservant to the king they are bilked of their time, money, abilities and energy as they work for a hierarchical corporation rather than Christ. These are the ones who submit to the corrupt church system.

Money + Control = Power

The term church is a treasonous word added to Scripture. The literal meaning of church in action is about money and control. These are the two things that power this abominable system that makes men into slaves in order to finance the personal kingdoms of ecclesiastical men.

And in their GREED they will EXPLOIT YOU with false words. – 2 Peter 2:3

If you go to a building called church, you are simply a piece of merchandise to be used how the pastor-king and his representatives see fit. Every person that walks through the doors of will be trained to bow down to their whims.

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

Those who willingly partake of the traditions of man will put themselves into spiritual and financial bondage to loudmouth religious pretenders who wants to profit and make a living off of you. You will coerced you to pay for your "fire insurance," or you will not receive God’s blessing, or protection. Assembling together with the cookie-cutter saints means obedience and homage to their self-centred rulers who hears from God on your behalf. These men imagine stuff up in their prophetic utterances to keep the people in a glossy-eyed religious state blinded in their bondage of imitating the Old Testament ways that were fulfilled by what Christ has done.

For freedom CHRIST HAS SET US FREE; stand firm therefore, and DO NOT SUBMIT AGAIN TO A YOKE OF SLAVERY. – Galatians 5:1

The religious elite give their building their own name and and advertise it as a “house of God.” They call the elevated floor where the pompous pulpit peacock utters his religious diatribe the “altar.” They talk of tithes and coverings to extend their manipulation to the gullible who will listen. The religious minions of the counterfeit church system are parrots of their pastor-kings who talk of grace, but in fact they all live in the Old Testament perpetuating the traditions of man. They associate the name of Christ while denying what he finished.

The latest Church fad.
The latest Church fad.

Super-Heroes, Egos, Celebrities, Fads & Traditions

The cookie-cutter saint will line up around the block in anticipation of the latest Christian fads hoping to satisfy their insatiable hunger for their next fix of religious bliss. They rely on the countless religious celebrities who are the modern day religious super heroes that will bring them salvation.

Those of the ekklesia of Christ will defy the carnal religious works and expose the wolves in sheep’s clothing. Unfortunately, many live in a religious fantasy of church and make the Gospel of no effect because they glorify men instead of God through Christ. They do things in Jesus' name, but the truth is that the name they do things in is their own.

“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ – Mark 7:6-7

The religious masses are blinded in their false religion called church that they inherited from Constantine. The foundation and precepts on which they function are man-driven agendas that deny the leading of the Holy Spirit.

When Christ is the head, his followers disciples who learn to think for themselves and allow the Holy Spirit to lead them to truth. They will have the discernment to know what is truth from deception.

Those who conform to the cookie-cutter religion will bow to a self-appointed king, or whatever name they give to the person in charge. These people are easily recognized because they have special certificates and diplomas that are hung on the walls within their kingdoms. These framed pieces of paper are a display of their indoctrination they received from their brand of seminary. They have received a strong delusion believing that the traditions of man are the truth.

THEY LOVE THE PLACE OF HONOR at feasts and the BEST SEATS in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others. – Matthew 23:6-7

Satan creates religious psychopathological religious men who live in a delusional world of grandeur who love wealth and power. They have an insatiable need for ego gratification to boost their status among men. These men will hear voices and believe they have special powers in the delusion of being the “specially chosen” of God. These types are easily exposed through their charming and loving personas, but really the “charm” and “love” is power and control to empty people's purses and wallets. The characteristics of Satan’s disciples are easily detected in the egocentric environments that they are most comfortable in.

Take Heed

For anyone who wants to be free from spiritual abusive and controlling religious environments, please take heed.

The spirit of Christ does not work in any way through the widespread and prominent church buildings that plagues the landscape today. Diabolical men assume false authority and fight for prominence to gain the next tier on the religious hierarchical totem pole of the man-driven institution of church.

The plain fact is that church is a meeting place built by men where Romanized traditions take place violating the purpose of God. These elaborate buildings rely upon the contingency of human merchandise to keep the system running. The men in charge require money to give them power. As they build up their storehouse of riches, their influence and power grows and the demand for additional hirelings are required to keep the people under their power and control.

The monetary is their god and their minions willingly give it to them. The needs of the clergy will always come first. They are the ones who make all the decisions. They do not rely on the economy of God’s Kingdom, but the world economy to spread their religious disease and false gospel.

Pew-warmers have become blinded by their indoctrination and they have allowed themselves to be victims of manipulation and intimidation. The psychological tactics and techniques are used so deviously that most who enter through her doors will come to believe that the product of human wisdom is the Gospel. You will be merchandised as a member being given over to domineering and controlling religious demonic spirits in an antichrist system that is in total rebellion and disobedience to God.

The authority of these religious elite will always have to be proclaimed. They will say that God has commissioned with a mandate to rule. Since they hear from God on behalf of the people, the church minions must obey and submit to their commands. To defy them means to defy God. These men are deemed “extra special” with unique gifts that they claim to possess.

Self-promoting religious men who put themselves on pedestals do not like anyone chopping at their base. The moment anyone questions their authority, they are automatically deemed the “problem.” These special men in their delusions believe that they are the mouth piece of God.

Who would dare touch God’s anointed?

Well, will tell you who would dare to.

They are the followers Christ who have a mandate of sending the message of the one who can set the captives free and expose the charlatans fro who they are.

There are some who will heed God’s calling to come out of the harlot church system of spiritual Babylon. Often when they attempt to leave they become objects of the wrath of the institution in an attempt of compelling them to return to the fold. Unfortunately, many concede after allowing themselves to be affected by vigorous lies, ridicule and scorn that are meant as manipulation tactics to bring them back under submission once again.

All pastor-kings claim that they have a special hotline to God. That is why they believe they are chosen to be the mediators for the people because only they possess the “special” knowledge that was given to them. This knowledge often manifests into policies and doctrines that are simply meant to control others. Hidden knowledge is a means of bilking people of their money as the concealed mysteries are only revealed once the price has been paid.

The speciality of seminary trained officials is to butcher the word of God for gain. They string cherry-picked verses together to create their own doctrines making themselves the saviours of the people because they have a special hotline to God.

The only way to working up the corporate ladder within the antichrist system is to sell your soul. Once you bow down to Satan’s control, he will surround you with his children who will approve, accept, recognize and applaud you for your service to his kingdom.

The glossy-eyed masses will flock into their lavish buildings to hear the special anointed words of the their latest pied-pipers. These are the men who run modern church system winning the masses over as they dole out their ear candy. They will promise you many things appealing to your carnal desire with promises of becoming great in their kingdom. This is Satan’s greatest illusion as many believe they are worshipping God, but it is him they are worshipping.

Satan has enticed the carnal nature of many with the carrot of becoming someone great. Many are duped into the vocation of taking on the great responsibility of leading people to God by training and developing them in the traditions of man for a salary. Satan says, “This is your God given responsibility,” but this really translates into becoming another church dictator who replaces the headship of Christ for money, power and fame. The pew-warming minions are the entourage of many a senior-pastors. They are their bondslaves who jump through their hoops by the simple wave of their hands. They gobble up their verbal praise and flattery like penny candies with pats on the back and accolades as they are measure of their performance and duty to the institution. To disappoint an elevated pompous pulpit peacock equates to disappointing God. They are masters of the art of doling, or withholding praise and flattery as a coercive tool to get people to do their bidding.

The power of the human ego must feed off self-centredness in the delusional minds of men who believe they must have spiritual authority over others. How sad it is for their minions who think they are free to independent thought and control in their lives. This is the worst kind of control where people believe they are “preserved” in an illusion of following Christ. Religious emotional pleas pull on their heartstrings as they pull out their wallets to finance their heretical leaders.

The Church System

Are you part of the institutionalized church system that makes you believe that rampant intimidation and manipulation is the way of Christ?

If you go to a named building called church, then you are part of this system.

You can try to defend the system, but it will be failure when contrasted with the standard of the way of Christ and the apostles in Scripture.

The self-centred man-made agenda of the church system has no place for those among the ekklesia who abide by the spiritual pattern set forth by the spirit of Christ as attested in Scripture. Those who function in God’s will through the narrow gate of Christ will find love, life and liberty who are free from the dictates of the wide road that leads to destruction.

All those who partake of the church system will have the mindset of the antichrist spirit. The only way to cure this blindness is through discarding man's way and allowing Christ to be the head.

The antichrist spirit will ridicule and oppose the remnant of Christ. This has been attested throughout history since Christ started building his ekklesia. The true Gospel of the Kingdom will defy the ways of the religious elite. Many men of God have been martyred for truth as they exposed the corrupt religious systems of men to bring other to the truth.

The pew warmer and the men who control them are blinded to truth. To truly see truth for who they really are is asking for discernment from God who is the only one through Christ only who can take off the institutional church lenses of the many who blindly support a system that is an abomination to Him.

Get out of this system while you still can, or face the consequences.

Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “COME OUT OF HER, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you SHARE IN HER PLAGUES – Revelation 18:4

In a nutshell, the antichrist church system dresses people up in good religious works as proof to the world that they are saved. Their good deeds mean nothing to God because they are the bondage of preachers who desire power, control, and money rather than following the way of Christ.

The church system is cursed entity because it denies all those who enter through her doors the liberty that was bought and paid for by what Christ has done.

Are you part of the Church system?

      You have made the distinction between what are called Christians and disciples of Jesus Christ. The true Body of Christ know Jesus' voice because they don't allow salaried men called pastors to be their mediators between God and men.

      For there is one God, and there is ONE MEDIATOR between God and men, the man Christ Jesus - 1 Timothy 2:5

      Thank-you for commenting and God Bless.

      Amen, good words. The Pharisees are alive and well today, but exist through the current form of organized religion to steal souls. Man has always sought a king vs God, and pastors fill that role. The true church knows Jesus' voice however.

      I appreciate the additional information that you have posted here. If one honestly researches Church history and compares and contrasts it with way of the Ekklesia as attested in Scripture, it may be shocking to find out that the Church system is antichrist in its nature.

      But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in HIS OWN NAME, you will receive him. How can you believe, when you RECEIVE GLORY FROM ONE ANOTHER and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? - John 5:42-44

      Jesus Christ came in his Father's name, but the religious elite did not receive him. The Church system is the same, they only accept those ones who bear the brand-name of their particular denomination and receive the glory of one another in the lavish temples that they built for themselves. This what Jesus thinks of their works,

      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

      God Bless.

      The Church system makes you drink their kool-aid. Our job as disciples is to be the salt of the earth, which makes the world thirst for the living water that only Jesus Christ can provide.

      It is never about how great the salt is, but what the salt actually does.

      Disciples of Jesus Christ are the salt of the earth.

      Church members are MSG of the earth.

      Each live out who they are and give taste to whom they give their allegiance to.

      Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone. - Colosians 4:6

      I appreciate the encouragement from a like-minded brother in Christ. We are all called to relay the Kingdom message to those who will listen. Jesus Christ uses his brethren to take his message to the world and to encourage one another in truth.

      Thank-you for your comment.

      The call of every disciple of Jesus Christ is to promote the Gospel of the Kingdom with the gifts God has given them through the grace of Jesus Christ. We live in a world where the Gospel has been perverted to the point that the masses flock into buildings run by salaried mediators is the way to salvation. I take this issue seriously as it is an abominable deception.

      At this point I use the conduit of HubPages to relay information and give an opportunity for the reader to weigh, test, share and discuss the themes. Whether I reach only one person, or thousands is really not my concern. My number one concern is seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.

      God Bless.

      (("I think that I am going to disagree with the statements made in this hub. I know a few churches where community is vitally important, and the pastors are NOT out to make money. They are the real deal. Not every church is a bad idea. Some actually promote worship and fellowship. I am part of such a church."))

      Your response is the same for every other church attender out there. Church is a corrupt word put into the Bible. “Church” has replaced the original Greek word ekklesia that was given by the Holy Spirit. It is a twisted and perverted word that has nothing to do with God’s plan for His people. Most people who think of the word Church believe it to be exactly what it means, which is building part of a denominational man-made institution.

      In contrast, Jesus Christ is the one who builds his Ekklesia, not men. For further info on the distinction between the Ekklesia vs. Church please peruse the following articles.

      All Churches believe community is vitally important as they promote worship and fellowship in the name they have created for themselves on the signs of the thousands of buildings they have built for themselves across the landscape. All these things are done within the framework of the traditions of man; it is all in vain. Church is a business and needs money from their members to keep it running. They are run like a corporation with board members, registered with government with 501c3 status and have salaried officials running their affairs.

      If you disagree with my statements in the article, please quote them and use Scripture to prove otherwise. Most of verses that Church members use are simply parroted from what their pastor has cherry-picked for them. Under critical examination of Scripture, you will find that the abomination of the Church system did not exist among the Early Ekklesia and is in complete opposition to the Gospel.

      I used to believe the same way you do, but I can no longer reconcile the traditions of man with the purpose of God for the body of Christ. Churches create denominational members, but Jesus Christ creates disciples.

      Thank-you for your comment.

      What is known as “church” today is the complete and total invention of Satan, along with the willing help of man. “Church” formally began when the bride of Christ married the Roman Empire under the emperor and pagan idol worshiper Constantine. Constantine needed to find a way to settle unrest in the Roman Empire and saw an opportunity with the large number of Christians to consolidate religion (With pagan practices) and effectively control a huge number of the population. Constantine implemented a formal hierarchy system of Bishops, housing them in mostly former pagan temples. These Bishops received favor (money, power and prestige) from Constantine so long as they did his bidding. And boy did they do some of his bidding through the “church.” We can thank Constantine for forced tithing, the trinity, infant baptism, and burning people at the stake any that came against the doctrines of “his” church. By declaring himself head of the Catholic Church, Constantine used his power to run and manipulate the entire system and all those who were members of it. And by the way, under “pope” Constantine, if you were a citizen of the Roman Empire, you had better be a paying member of the Catholic Church; otherwise, you might find yourself and your family in some serious trouble.

      History clearly shows that “church,” as we know it today, is nothing more than the offspring of Roman Catholicism – including most of the doctrines implemented by Constantine and his predecessors. There really was no reformation to speak of; the protestant movement just “formally” dropped out of the Catholic Church and the Church of England but kept most of the false doctrines and the unbiblical institutional system. Today churches have “pastors” instead of Bishops and names like Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, etc., instead of Catholic.

      Church, as seen today, is an apostasy! It doesn’t need reformation, it needs to be exposed for what it is and totally done away with!

      Sure there are those who say “their” church is different. But if “their” church is run under the same system, using the people’s money to pay for preacher’s salaries and buildings, then “their” church is an abomination to the truth of God’s word! And if their church is incorporated as a 501(c)(3), then they have formally and legally aligned with the State and effectively replaced Jesus as head of the Ekklesia with the State – and that’s a real problem!

      If you are currently supporting, IN ANY WAY, a “church” that uses this system, you are walking on very thin ice with regard to your eternal salvation and existence. I believe Jesus said, “If the blind lead the blind they both fall in the pit!”

      I once felt the same way about “my” church, but realized that my feelings and traditions weren’t what God was concerned with; He is only concerned with my total and complete obedience to the truth of His word. Feelings and traditions have NOTHING to do with the truth of God!

      Renounce the harlot church of man and Satan for what it is and come out before it’s too late! The embrace of Christ’s Ekklesia is waiting for you.

      seemingly, time and time again these well composed articles of your are - falling short of wide-spread audience.


      Seminally, time and time again these well composed artless of your are falling short of reaching wide-spread commenters, readers. Why?- just wondering. Obviously, your concern is to address the serious issue of the eternal value, - ' the kingdom of God here and now '- which has been from the beginning proclaimed by the ' Son of man', the Jesus Anointed One. Wasn't His method of reaching masses slightly different comparing to the popular one "we" and "them" are practicing at present time. The "hungry " souls of Jesus' generation remained the same throughout the centuries, and " laying hands on sick to get them healed" has remained he same one of the manifestation kingdom of heaven / God , mentioning only one of many...

      Voted interesting.

      Peace with us.

      I think that I am going to disagree with the statements made in this hub. I know a few churches where community is vitally important, and the pastors are NOT out to make money. They are the real deal. Not every church is a bad idea. Some actually promote worship and fellowship. I am part of such a church.

      Regarding the statements made by Gracenius above about LG, I personally second that notion. Gracenius speaks the truth.

      PandN- I would be very careful about anything LG has to say. Although her comment appears to support your Hub I wouldn't count on it. She is in my opinion on of the greatest supporters of the anti-christ system I have ever seen. LG belongs to the Universal Life Church and she (LG) claims to be a Reverend. I've researched the ULC which was started in 1962 by Kirby J Hensley. Those within this church believe anyone can believe what they what to believe. They welcome all faith's and all belief;s. This church claims they have "ordined" over 18 "MILLION" people since 1965 and LG is included in this group. So in my opinion, LG is part of the anti-christ system just like her so called church.
