The 7 Dimensional Conspiracies (Christian Organized Religion)

"The biggest conspiracy has always been the fact that there is no conspiracy. Nobody's out to get you. Nobody gives a shit whether you live or die. There, you feel better now?" (Comedian, Dennis Miller)





In 1936 American journalist, Henry Louis Mencken wrote: "The central belief of every moron is that he is the victim of a mysterious conspiracy against his common rights and true deserts. He ascribes all his failure to get on in the world, all of his congenital incapacity and dam-foolishness, to the machinations of werewolves assembled in Wall Street, or some other such den of infamy."





Conspiracy





To conspire means "to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or to use such means to accomplish a lawful end." The word conspiracy is derived from Latin and means, literally, to breathe together. By its very nature, therefore, conspiracy is a crime that must be committed collectively, involving a minimum of two offenders.





7 Types of Conspiracy Theories





According to Wikipedia, the term "conspiracy theory" may be used by the media to describe any legitimate or illegitimate claim of civil, criminal, or political conspiracy - such as secret political, military, or banking actions aimed at stealing power, freedom or money from people. Political scientists have categorized conspiracy theories into events, systems, and super-conspiracy systems. Following are just 7 types of conspiracy theories that have been prominent during my lifetime:





1. Political Assassinations - Who really assassinated President John F. Kennedy? - Was it the CIA, FBI, KGB, or the Cubans?





2. Celebrity Deaths - John Lennon of The Beatles is supposed by some to have been assassinated by the CIA using mind manipulation upon Mark Chapman.





3. Creation of Diseases - Some believe that the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS is a man-made disease created by CIA scientists in the 1970's, via tainted hepatitis vaccinations, etc.





4. Extraterrestrials - Unidentified flying objects (UFO's) have been seen by hundreds of credentialed people for the last 70 years, yet the government continues to deny having any evidence of extraterrestrials (Area 51).





5. Space - Some theorists claim that the Apollo moon landings were "staged" in a Hollywood movie studio to conceal some aspect of the truth of the circumstances of the actual landing, etc.





6. Government Covert Operations - Some allege that the September 11th terrorist attacks in 2001 were intentionally orchestrated by the United States government to promote the Iraq War.





7. Religion - Bible conspiracies: Since bible times, there have been numerous allegations that Jesus faked his own death; that he did not die on the cross; and that he had a wife, (Da Vinci Code, etc.).





Conspiracy theory is also used in a negative sense to automatically dismiss claims that are deemed ridiculous, misconceived, paranoid, unfounded, outlandish or irrational. So are all conspiracy theories just stupid made-up lies? In some cases conspiracy theory claims that were initially dismissed as unfounded were later proved to be true (et, U.S. government acknowledged Operation Ajax in 1953, a covert coup to topple the democratically elected leaders of Iran, etc.).





7 Bloodiest Conspiracies of the 20th Century





History tells us that some conspiracies of genocide (the deliberate and systematic mass murder of people) have proved to be true. Some political leaders for example have genuinely conspired with others to cause enormous amounts of misery and death. Below are 7 of the most notorious tyrants of the 20th Century who secretly took actions with others resulting in the death of millions of people under their control.





1. Mao Ze-Dong (China, 1958-61 and 1966-69) - 40,000,000 people died


2. Adolf Hitler (Germany, 1939-1945) - 34,000,000 people died


3. Jozef Stalin (USSR, 1934-39) - 20,000,000 people died


4. Hideki Tojo (Japan, 1941-44) - 5,000,000 people died


5. Vladimir Lenin (USSR, 1917-24) - 4,000,000 people died


6. Pol Pot (Cambodia, 1975-79) - 1,700,000 people died


7. Kim Il Sung (North Korea, 1948-94) - 1,600,000 people died





Note: See death toll references for Mao, Hitler, and Stalin at: users.erols.com/mwhite28/tyrants.htm., by Matthew White. See references for the other death tolls at: Genocide - An offense against humanity by Dr. A. Krishna Kumari. It is unthinkable that 7 men could conspire to kill over 1 Billion people within a 70 year period.





The "Organized Religion" of Christianity - Conspiracy





This article primarily focuses on a religious super-conspiracy system that started in ancient times. It includes elaborate plots, clandestine government plans, suppression of secret knowledge and technology, and other supposed schemes behind certain cultural, political, religious, and historical events. Now, I want you to take a deep breath and ponder this thought:





"The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists" (J. Edgar Hoover - The First Director of the FBI).





Have you ever wondered? Why would the God that created our Universe and everything in it, have anything to do with "Organized Religion" that has historically and directly caused thousands of years of hate, hostility, fear, corruption, greed, moral decay, abuse of spiritual authority, the Inquisitions, the Holy Wars, and the torture and death of millions of men, women, and children? Well maybe God doesn't have or want anything to do with any of the past or present day organized religions.





What if --- the "Organized Religion of Christianity" was a planned evil conspiracy to:





1. Destroy the Early "Christian Home" Church that was a spiritually living organism up until 327 A.D., after 300 years of true worship and service - and





2. Establish in its place a pseudo (fake) powerless dead religious "Christian Temple" centered organized religion - with the motives to:





A. Unite Church and State for absolute power and control; (327 AD)


B. Attack Christian families by making the Home Church heretical; and


C. Attack Christian marriages by subsequently making marriage illegal for Priests and bishops,





(In 1022 Pope Benedict VIII banned marriages for priests).


Note: In 390AD: a massacre of 7,000 plus "heretics" in Thessalonica by the Roman emperor Theodosius revealed the early "New World Order" to the world. He ordered that the conventicles (small house groups) of the heretics were not to be called churches.





Many Christian conspiracy theorists believe there is an ancient occult conspiracy - started by the first mystagogues of Gnosticism and perpetuated by their alleged esoteric successors, such as the Kabbalists, Cathars, Knights Templar, Hermetics, Rosicrucians, Freemasons, and, ultimately, the Illiminati - which seeks to subvert the Judeo-Christian foundations of the Western world and implement the New World Order through a New Age one-world religion that prepares the masses to embrace the imperial cult of the Antichrist. More broadly, they speculate that globalists who plot on behalf of a New World Order are directed by occult agencies of some sort: unknown superiors, spiritual hierarchies, demons, fallen angels or Lucifer (New World Order - Conspiracy Theory, Wikipedia).





Historical writers have divided this "Super-Conspiracy" theory into two categories: The One World Government and the One World religion. They have attributed its' origin and progression at different times to the following sources:





The One World "Government" - Conspiracy Theory





1. The Ancient Pagan Temple Cults: The Book of Jubilees is an ancient Jewish religious work written 150 B.C. that narrates the genesis of how a group of fallen angels mated with mortal females, giving rise to a race of giants known as the Nephilim (Genesis 6:4). It alleges that these fallen angels built the Great Pyramids by exploiting God's wisdom (The Golden Ratio), and they forced mankind to worship them. According to bible scholars, the Tower of Babel was also a pyramid or ziggurat/ temple (Genesis 11:3, 4 - NIV Commentary) that was used for "organized religion."





2. The Patriarchs: The Book of Jubilees also contains the legend that secret wisdom had been passed down by God to the patriarchs (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, etc), and that it had been specially preserved - engraved on "tablets of stone" (Torah) and handed down to King David (Exodus 31:18, 34:1, Habakkuk 2:2-3).





3. King Solomon: The first temple in Jerusalem was built by King Solomon, son of King David in 949 B.C. (1 Chronicles 22:14, 29:4; 2 Chronicles 3:1) who discovered this ancient wisdom from his father, and passed it on to his head mason (The First Freemason) who laid the corner stone for the first Jewish Temple. Solomon's head mason subsequently engraved this wisdom into the temple pillars.





4. Herod the Great: After the first temple was destroyed by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon (2 Kings 24:13; 2 Chronicles 36:7), this ancient wisdom was re-discovered in the temple pillars, and the temple was rebuilt in 515 B.C. and completely restored by King Herod in 65 A.D., but Roman soldiers destroyed it again in 70 A.D.





5. The Knights Templar: Templar legends are connected with the Order's early occupation of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem after the crusades in 1119 A.D., and there is much speculation about what ancient wisdom and relics the Templars may have found there, such as the Holy Grail or the Ark of the Covenant. After leaving Jerusalem, it is documented that with their extensive financial resources, the Knights Templar funded a large number of Cathedrals around Europe and in the Holy Land (Wikipedia).





6. The Free Masons: Masonic tradition holds that the first Masonic Lodge was formed at the building of King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. Masonic conspiracy theories have had three categories: Political - involving allegations of control of government, particularly in the United States and the United Kingdom; Religious - usually involving allegations of anti-Christian or Satanic beliefs or practices); and Cultural - involving popular entertainment (Wikipedia).





7. Other Secret Societies: The Illuminati, Skull and Bones, Federal Reserve System, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group, etc., are all alleged to have "New World Order," and occultic agendas consummating with the Antichrist controlling a One World Government (Revelation 19:20).





* Note on the Tower of Babel: God condemned this "organized religion" after the flood by confusing their language. In contrast, God gave the Apostles the ability to speak in all languages at the birth of the first unorganized religion or Early Church (Acts 2:1-12).





* Note on the Golden Ratio: It (1: 1. 618034), has appeared in ancient and modern architecture such as the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt, the Greek Parthenon, Notre Dame, and the United Nations Building (Wikipedia).





* Note on the Torah: According to ancient Jewish tradition, God wrote the entire first five books of the bible (Torah) on the "10 Commandment" tablets of stone. Some believe based on the tradition among the most devout Jewish scholars - that everything and everyone that ever was or ever will be was recorded in the text of the Torah in secret encryption codes (biblecodedigest).





The One World "Religion" - Conspiracy Theory





Some believe that after 300 years of Satan persecuting the Early Church and failing to destroy it - that he decided: "If you can't beat them, join them." And at that very moment in 327 A.D., he decided to switch strategies and direct all of his Satanic forces to influence the Roman Emperor Constantine to make a pseudo (fake) conversion to Christianity, and totally transform the Early Church, causing a radical paradigm shift in the basic concept "Christianity" that would last 1600 years until this present day (cynet/Jesus/Prophecy/whore).





Legitimization under Constantine: From persecuted minority to official imperial religion - what caused this extraordinary reversal for Christianity? (Shaye I. D. Cohen)





"The Romans tried to beat down Christianity but failed. By the fourth century Christianity becomes the state religion and by the end of the fourth century it is illegal to do any form of public worship other than Christianity in the entire Roman Empire. There is a great mystery in how this happened -- how such an extraordinary reversal, that begins with Jesus who is executed by the Romans as a public criminal, as a threat to the social order, and somehow we wind up three centuries later with Jesus being hailed as a God, as part of the one, true God who is the God of the "New Christian Roman Empire." There is a remarkable progress, a remarkable development in the course of three centuries.... It's hard to understand exactly how it happened or why it happened, but it is important to realize that we have a progression and a set of developments, and that Christianity by the fourth century is not the same as the Christianity that we see in the first or even the second," (Shaye I. D. Cohen).





7 "Christian" Conspiracy Tactics





Many believers proclaim that the Christian Church was intentionally transformed in 327 A.D.:





From: A spontaneous, adaptable private, living organism - "Family Ministry Model"


To: A sterile, rigid, public, State governed - "Business Organization Model"





Following are a list of 7 conspiracy tactics used to drastically change the focus of the Early Church into an "Organized Religion of Christianity."





1. Location was Changed


From: The small private informal home/ family oriented church (Rom. 16:5, 10, 11; 1 Cor. 16:19, Col 4:15).


To: The formal massive empire controlled Basilicas "Church Temples" with their pulpits and pews.





2. Leadership was Changed


From: The concept that every believer has direct access to God through Jesus our High Priest, and does not need to go to any human priest to give them access to God (1 Tim 2:5, Heb 8:1, Exodus 19:6).


To: The establishment of the first "Christian Priesthood" or caste system in which the professional, paid, and appointed Bishops ruled over the laity or common Christian believers.





3. Confession was Changed


From: The concept of repenting (or admitting that I was wrong) to Jesus and asking for forgiveness directly from God and those that I have offended in my Christian family home (James 5:16, Heb 3:1, 1 Jn. 1:9).


To: Going to the "Christian Temple" or Basilica to make confession and addressing a stranger as "Father" to confess to him that you have sinned against God. Jesus warned us to call no religious leader "Father," (Matthew 23:9).





4. Communion was Changed


From: The concept that Holy Communion was reverently sharing a common meal of the time (bread & wine) with your Christian family in your home in remembrance of what Christ has done for you (Matthew 26:26-29, 1 Cor. 10:16, 1 Cor. 11:27).


To: Attending a huge Cathedral and watching a priest perform a "transformation" in which the bread and wine that he eats and drinks is believed to actually become the body and blood of Jesus.





5. Giving was Changed


From: The concept of "giving" money, food, and clothing - directly to the poor, my Christian family, and others in need, until the need was met (Acts 6:1, 11:29, Rom. 15:26, Gal. 2:10).


To: Tithing or submitting 10 percent of your salary to the Priesthood and Bishop (Papal treasurer) to support the Basilica or other ministry/ business endeavors.





6. Serving was Changed


From: The concept that the Holy Spirit lives inside all believers and gives us spiritual gifts to actively serve our Christian family daily and equip others to do the ministry (Rom 12:6-8, Eph. 4:11-13).


To: Attending the Mega-Church Building to watch (as a spectator) the "anointed" and appointed Priesthood teach and preach to the sinners.





7. Fellowshipping was Changed


From: The private praying, fasting, praising, spontaneous sharing, and intimate daily meetings in the "Spirit" in the privacy of your Christian family home (Mt. 6:6, 6:16, Acts 2:42).


To: The Basilica's impersonal public praying, tithing and solemn Sunday morning order of worship ritual service with its professionally delivered sermon and choir.





Biblical Standards for Evaluating Church Practices (Ephesians 2:19-22)


With all the irrational conspiracy theories out there, how can we determine if there is any truth to this one? Although particular accusations of conspiracy vary widely in their plausibility, there are biblical standards used to assess all Church practices. A church building is sometimes called God's house. In reality, God's household (or Church) is not a building, but a group of people, (New International Version - NIV, Bible- Commentary on Eph. 2:19-22).





Concerning the True Christian Church, "What does it mean to be built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets? It means that the church is not built on modern ideas, but rather on the spiritual heritage given to us by the early apostles and prophets of the Christian church," (New International Version - NIV, Bible- Commentary on Eph. 2:19-22).





It is not documented anywhere in the Bible that Jesus taught his Apostles, Prophets and/ or disciples that they must first build a physical church building to worship God in. The word "Church" is only used two times by Jesus in the four Gospels. Both of these verses are in the book of Matthew: Mt. 16:18; 18:17:





"And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it," (Mt. 16:18).





The rock on which Jesus would build his church has been identified by Bible scholars as being: 1. Jesus himself (his work of salvation by dying for us on the cross); 2. Peter (the first leader in the Jerusalem church); and 3. Peter's confession of faith. Peter later reminds Christians (1 Peter 2:4-5), that they are the church built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Jesus Christ as the cornerstone (NIV Commentary).





"As you come to him, the living Stone-rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him- you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ," (1 Peter 2:4-5).





7 Biblical Examples of House Churches - The Church in the Home was the Church!





1. "Likewise greet the church that is in their house, " (Rom 16:5).


2. "Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house," (1 Cor 16:19).


3. "Salute... Nymphas, and the church which is in his house," (Col 4:15).


4. "And to our beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house," (Phm 1:2).


5. "For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe," (1 Cor 1:11).


6. "And I baptized also the household of Stephanas: (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the first fruits of Achaia," (1 Cor 1:16-15).


7. "The Lord give mercy unto the house of Onesiphorus;" (2 Tim 1:16 ). "Salute Prisca and Aquila, and the household of Onesiphorus," (2 Tim 4:19).





The Christian Persecutions - Reasons for Home Churches?





The usual explanation for the existence of house churches, namely the explanation appealing to heavy persecutions of Christians, is not a good one. Persecutions prior to around A.D. 250 were sporadic, localized, and often the result of mob hostility (rather than the empire-wide decree of a Roman ruler). Surprisingly, Roman officials often intervened to protect Christians from unlawful local harassment by unbelieving Judaism (Ac 16:35, 17:6-9, 18:12-16, 19:37-38). There were at times 20 to 30 years of peace between some of the 10 distinct persecutions. The Early Church would have had plenty of opportunities to build public church buildings over the course of 300 years if the Holy Spirit had directed them to.





Constantine's Temple Worship Practices - Were they Biblical?





Under Constantine's protective wing, catholic Christianity experienced a period of mass conversion of pagans. This flood of pagans had a great impact on the catholic system of worship. New customs brought over from paganism included: "devotion to relics, the use of the kiss as a sign of reverence for holy objects, the practice of kneeling, the use of candles and incense, and an increased use of ceremonies patterned on those used in the imperial court" (Barrie Ruth Straus, The Catholic Church, p. 36).





Worship of angels, martyrs, and Mary also began to arise during the fourth century as new converts transferred to them some of the reverence they had felt for pagan deities. The converts believe that they could offer prayer to any of these personages, who would then make intercession for them. By the end of the fourth century, the catholic believers were not the bride of Christ as they claimed to be, but a fallen woman! (Wes White, What did the early church believe and preach after the death of Jesus?).





Discussion





Conspiracy theories have been used to explain historical and/ or current events from the beginning of time. They are often viewed with ridicule and skepticism because they are seldom supported by any conclusive evidence. If however, the overall theme is true or even parts of it, then the freedom and rights of individuals throughout the world are in danger and must be informed.





To be fair, Constantine's conversion initially helped Christianity in many ways. Followers were safe from persecution, and Christian leaders were given many gifts by the Emperor. He assembled the Council of Nicaea in 325, and the core belief system of the Christian faith was developed, adopting the concept of the Holy Trinity. He also made Sunday an official Roman holiday so that more people could attend church, and made churches tax-exempt - so that we can have our present day non-profit religious organization/ business tax "write-offs."





The 7 Sisters of Protestantism





Instead of focusing just on Constantine's Church of Rome that continued uninterrupted for 1200 years, let's take a look at the mainline Protestant church religious practices - that have continued for the last 400 years after the reformation:





1. United Methodist Church,


2. United Church of Christ,


3. Presbyterian Church,


4. Evangelical Lutheran Church


5. Episcopal Church,


6. Baptist Churches, and


7. Disciple of Christ Churches.





Martin Luther's 95 Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences written in 1517 is widely regarded as the primary catalyst for the Protestant Reformation, but did this 400 year old movement really go far enough in making changes? Protestant Churches have continued with the "Temple/ Priesthood (Pastor/ Laity) organized religion model of "Church," including Non-denominational and Interdenominational churches. Most still teach and require the following for church membership - which the average believer thinks is their salvation:





Organized Religion - Good News?





1. You must go to church to be saved!


2. You must read your Bible to be saved!


3. You must be a good, moral person by keeping the 10 Commandments to be saved!


4. You must be baptized by the church to be saved!


5. You must receive Holy Communion to be saved!


6. You must do service for the church to be saved!


7. You must tithe 10 percent of your income to be saved!





No amount of church attendance, bible reading, good deeds, charity, contributions to churches, nor any good work by you, can take away your sins or save you. The Bible says: Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."





Jesus's 7 Woes - "You Teachers of the Law, You Hypocrites"





Jesus condemned the organized religious leaders of his day for:





1. Not letting others enter the kingdom of heaven and not entering yourselves;


2. Converting people away from God to be like yourselves;


3. Blindly leading God's people to follow man-made traditions instead of God's Word;


4. Involving yourself in every last detail and ignoring what is really important: justice, mercy, and faith;


5. Keeping up appearances while your private world is corrupt


6. Acting spiritual to cover up sin;


7. Pretending to have learned from past history, but your present behavior shows you have learned nothing.


(NIV Commentary on Matthew 23:13-36, the 7 Woes)





The One Thing Jesus Hates





In the book of Revelation - Jesus gave the Apostle John a report card on 7 Churches after approximately 40 years of Early Church activity and He mentioned this thing that He hates twice:





But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate (Revelation 2:6, 15).





"Nicolaitanes" comes from 2 Greek words: nikao and laos meaning "establishing a priesthood over the laity or common believer." The church of Ephesus hated the establishment of a spiritual hierarchy. Jesus said, "Which I also hate." Why? Because it suddenly puts some men closer to God than others, and God wants you to come directly to Him in His Son Jesus Christ (1 Tim. 2:5).





Priesthoods





It was not God's perfect will for Moses to institute a Levitical Priesthood over the Israelites. Israel was to become a kingdom of priests and a holy nation where anyone could approach God freely. It didn't take long however for the people to corrupt God's plan. God then established Aaron's descendants from the tribe of Levi as priests, representing what the entire nation should have been. (NIV Commentary on Exodus 19:4-6).





Jesus came the first time to move us away from Levitical style (temple/ church) leadership. He came to move us into the Melchizedek Priesthood where ALL BELIEVERS qualify to become the priests of their families and homes (1 Peter 2:9, Revelation 5:10). Christ, our High Priest has given us the ministry of mediation (Heb. 7:25).





Temples





It was not God's perfect will for Solomon to build the temple. Although God turned down David's request to build the temple, he promised to raise up his offspring to build God's House, but he was not talking about Solomon, (2 Samuel 7: 11-13). David's earthly dynasty ended four centuries later, but Jesus Christ a direct descendant of David was the ultimate fulfillment of this promise (Acts 2:29 - 36).





Temple Courts





Why did the Jerusalem Church meet in the temple courts? (Acts 2:46, 5:42)





It seems that the temple courts temporarily (30-32AD) provided the newly Jewish/ Christian coverts with a place for large scale public witness while the needed community life could be developed through the home. After this 2 year period, a great persecution broke out against the church forcing the Christians out of Jerusalem and into Judea and Samaria - thus fulfilling the Jesusí command to spread the gospel to the ends of the earth (Acts 8:1, 1:8).





"End Times" - Temple





Many believe that in the "End Times," the False Prophet will establish a one world "organized religion," to rebuild Solomon's temple and set up the image of the Anti-Christ to be worshiped (Daniel 12:11, Matthew 24:15).





Certain groups such as the Freemasons and the Illuminati are allegedly preparing to rebuild a Third Solomon's Temple, including a recent one from Brazil (Robert Mackey, July 22, 2010, Rebuilding Solomon's Temple, in S„o Paulo, New York Times).





Conclusion





The best kind of mysterious conspiracy is the one that is impossible to prove, because the mystery itself perpetuates the conspiracy. The Apostle Paul declares that there is only one profound mystery found in the Bible:





"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery-but I am talking about Christ and the church."


The focus of this profound mystery is not on submission and marriage, but on the "Christian Marriage" as being the nucleus of God's Christian family and ministry in the Home Church.





For the first 300 years of Church life, the Christian faith was the only religion in history that met in their homes. It was the only "Priesthood of All Believers" or lay led religious movement in history. It was God's original plan for the nation of Israel (Exodus 19:5, 6). Christianity alone had no temples, institutions, or set rituals. This was unprecedented in history and it was what made Christianity unique, flexible, elastic, and adaptable.





The New Testament Pattern of House Churches will be Restored





One thing is for sure. The Christian Church started in the home and the Christian Church (on earth) will end in the home. When the Great Tribulation comes, the False Prophet will gather together all the organized religions to become the leader of a One World Religion. He will make it illegal for Christians to worship their God, and will bow down to worship the Anti-Christ - who will subsequently enter Solomonís rebuilt temple and proclaim himself to be God (The Abomination of Desolation: Matthew 24:15).





In the Great Tribulation no one will have to tell the true Christians to leave their organized religions - with their priesthoods and "mega-church buildings" (temples, cathedrals, basilicas), because the persecution of the False Prophet and the Anti-christ will force the Church (Gods People) to return to their homes to worship the true God (Revelation 11:17).





Unforgivable Sins?





Matthew 12:31, states: "And so I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven."





The Pharisees (Jewish Religious Leaders) had blasphemed against the Holy Spirit by attributing the power by which Christ did miracles to Satan instead of the Holy Spirit. This sin is attributing to the devil what is the work of the Holy Spirit.





Throughout history, people have been accused by organized religions of being possessed by the devil, and they were tortured and killed for their faith. Since the birth of the "Organized Religion of Christianity," in 327 A.D., millions have been killed by oppressive organized religions, and many of those victims were believers inspired by the Holy Spirit. In the Book of Revelation, we see an end to God's mercy on the spiritual abuse of the "Organized Religion of Christianity," or the Great Whore of Babylon (Revelation chapter 18).





After briefly reviewing the extensive data on this topic, it is still unclear to me if this was a human or super-human inspired conspiracy, or if this was even a conspiracy at all. However, what did become clear to me is that the God of the Universe is not in the business of "saving" and/ or endorsing any organized religious group, church denomination, nation, government, political party or football team.





Revelation 20:15, indicates that there are only individual "names"- not "group" names written in the Book of life. The book of life contains only the names of those who have put their faith in Christ to save them. May God have mercy on us all.





This article was not written and should not be viewed or considered to be a formal theological treatise on Church history, spirituality and/ or religion. It is merely a simplistic introduction to these topics to reveal how critical they are to our present concept of "Church" with the hope of assisting individuals to reassess their values, and reexamine their priorities to redefine what is really important in their lives.





My intent is not to persuade, influence, convince, or convert anyone to my personal beliefs. My goal is to help others to clarify and identify where they presently stand at this point in time, so that they can consider charting a course to get from where they are to where they desire to be someday. After all, you cannot make flight reservations if you don't know what airport you will be departing from.
