2 Cor. 6:14-18, ‘Do not be unequally yoked with [religious] unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the [spiritual] temple of God with [church] idols? For YOU are the temple of the living God… “Come out from among them and be separate,” says the Lord. “Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you. And you shall be My sons and daughters,” says the Lord Almighty.’
When ‘Saint’ Augustine declared, ‘Christ died only for an elect,’ he was referring to the ‘divine’ members of the Christian church. (This is still the foundation of Calvinism or the Dutch Reformed Church, in particular.) According to subliminal church-Theosis doctrine, church members became ‘little’ gods here on earth, and so Augustine preached that ‘God had ordained those [Christian gods] whom He chose to save. The number of the [Christian] elect is fixed. Whatever [these divine Christians] do or choose, grace is irresistible and results in conversion….’
Tragically, this extremely false Catholic doctrine of Christian-Theosis, known as ‘predestination,’ became Lutheran and Calvinist doctrine exactly!
Most Protestant Christians, (Pentecostals and Charismatics included,) do not realize this disturbing fact, but Roman Catholicism rightfully claims original ownership of the word ‘church,’ the name ‘Christian,’ and the entire concept of the ‘Christian’ Church. All other Christian churches are therefore the ‘harlot daughters of this mother church.’ They all are permeated with her Christianized pagan doctrines, false church hierarchies, idolatrous church buildings, and everything else that pertain to this “mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth.” It is to the millions of blind captives in these churches that God calls in Rev. 18:4, “Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins and lest you receive of her plagues…”
The many mighty, inconceivably violent Christian crusades, and political- and religious oppression of the Christian Church throughout the centuries, her giant church structures, ‘infallible’ Christian hierarchies, immense Christian wealth, and ‘irrefutable’ Christian fallacies have proved that Christians had became spiritual giants on the earth. Most of the unsuspecting ‘laity’ do not know this, but the church hierarchy intended, and still intends that church members should ‘go after strange flesh,’ by embodying that perverted spirit, which Christian churches with their Masonic towers symbolize. However, according to the contextual Word, God intended that the Scripturally born again, obedient followers of Christ should be “transformed into the image of His Son,” not into the image of the ‘church.’ - (Rom. 12:1-2; 8:29; Phil. 3:10,21.) Satan’s corrupted race of Nephilim, the physical giants, described in Gen. 6:4, were not ordinary men like Adam, whom God had created ‘in His image,’ (Gen. 6:4.) As a result, Christian giants, that spiritually perverted Catholic-Protestant Church, did not and does not – and in fact CANNOT produce sincerely born again, obedient followers in the image of God’s Son, (Gal. 6:7.)
The Catholic-Protestant Church-system is the ‘mother of harlots;’ the mother of all the denominations, which sprang from her, and remain affiliated with her, (Rev. 17:5.) The religious Catholic-Protestant Church, as all other spiritual ‘Nephilim,’ (all other religionists,) which Satan had transformed into his own perverted image, continually clone themselves to produce a strange, hybrid species - a religious race of ‘Nephîycîym,’ or temple-serving Christians on the earth, (Mt. 23:13-15: Jn. 8:44.)
Sadly, this Christian breed of spiritual giants is the product of the unlike union between Jesus’ truth and false doctrine; between Holy-Spirit gifts and satanic imitation; between Godly worship and pagan frenzy; between contextual Biblical commandments and pagan ritual; between Jesus’ body and the religious harlot. And ultimately, they represent a false union between what seems to be of Christ, but which is wholly of the devil, (1 Cor. 6:15-19; 10:17-21; 2 Cor. 6:14-18 – Please read Rev. 17-18!)
‘THE WAY’ CONFORMED TO CHRISTIANITY
It is truly shocking and saddening to discover that within 31 years of the Holy Spirit outpouring at Pentecost, (by AD 64,) the pagan/Christian godfathers of the Roman Catholic Church had already begun to impregnate the ecclesia of Christ with the cruel, religious beast of Christian religion.
‘History of the Melkites’ online declared, ‘Antioch was one of the first cities to become a center of the Roman Catholic, Christian faith, (Acts 11:26.) [This is where followers of The Way were first called Christians.] The Melkites, or Byzantine Rite Catholics of Middle Eastern origin, are the descendants of the early Christians of Antioch (Syria)… Antioch was both a territorial and judicial entity. The Overseers, [harsh hierarchical rulers that oppressed the people like prison guards,] held the government of the church... These bishops [a false office or post and a replica of the true servant-elderly of Christ] were given the title of Patriarch. After the capitol of the Roman empire was moved to Constantinople, that city was also elevated to a Patriarchal see (in 381AD) and given the ranking of "second only to the Seat of Peter" (in Rome)…’
If the sincere elderly (or so-called ‘elders’) of the ecclesia renamed the disciple-followers of The Way, or even if they passively accepted the ‘divine’ new name of Roman Catholic ‘Christian,’ it must have been because they did not recognize the satanic spirit behind the inventors of Christianity - which was highly improbable.
Fact is, shortly after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Christianity - that deadly Christian snake of church religion, slowly began to curl itself around the living ecclesia of Christ in a suffocating embrace, (Mt. 23:33.)
Feeding on the “souls and bodies of men,” (Rev. 18:2-5,) religious Christianity quickly grew into a GIANT anaconda that would swallow billions of believers during the millennia to come; deceiving, stealing, and abducting them away from Christ, His Spiritual Kingdom, His true ecclesia, the truth of His Word, the salvation of His cross, and the power of His Holy Spirit.
Soon after this spiritual death conversion, the whole ‘civilized’ world’s political acceptance of this Christian snake would dawn.
