"The things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils and not to God; and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.  ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of devils; ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table and of the table of devils." (1 Corinthians 10:20-21)

     The words just quoted make it perfectly clear that all religions do not worship the same God, that religious belief has no common denominator, and that there is no common ground between Christianity and false religion. Before the day of Pentecost Satan held almost the entire world under his spell, and it would be foolish to ignore the danger of false religion in our world today. The devils who deceived the world in ages past have not gone away, but are more active today than ever before. While many non-Christian religions now disguise their beliefs in order to make them more attractive to Christians, they still worship devils, and the people that have been deceived by those religions still need to be saved.


Although a few cults openly advocate Satanism, they are only a diversion that Satan uses to draw attention away from the main thrust of his multifaceted attack on Christianity. That attack is using liberalism to divide and neutralize the testimony of God’s church, using cults to snare those who have confused by the controversy, and using the schools and universities to spread secular religion, marginalize Christianity, undermine its credibility, capture control of the entertainment industry, and advance political ideologies that work to divorce Christian influence from government and the public sector.

Furthermore, as Satan works to ensnare believers in his web of deceit you can expect most of his agents to pass themselves off as Christians rather than Satanists (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). However, in spite of the masquerade it is often possible to uncover similarities between the false religions that he is now promoting and the pagan system that he promoted in ancient times.


At the time of Christ, the Greeks, Romans, and Arabians all worshiped a pantheon of male and female deities, one being chief over the others.  While the Greeks called the chief god of their pantheon Zeus, the Romans called him Jupiter, and the Arabians called him Allah. In fact, the symbol of the crescent moon is associated with the Moslem religion to this very day, because in Arabian mythology Allah was known as the moon god. Furthermore, Arabians still worship that same god! Mohamed did not replace the worship of Allah with worship of the true God, Satan simply used him to streamline the Arabian version of the existing pagan religious system in order to make it more competitive with Christianity.

If you think that every Moslem would disagree with what I just said, think again. For I once pointed that very fact out to a Moslem only to have him say, “that one idol just happened to be the true God.” I think it is significant that he did not deny what I said, or even disagree with me. He simply claimed that his idol was the true god. However, his claim contradicts Scripture, for the Bible tells us that all who worship idols, Allah included, are worshipping devils (1 Corinthians 10:20-21). Therefore, while Mohammed reduced the number of gods worshipped by the Arabian people from 300 to one, and got rid of the statues, the satanic nature of the religion is still the same. In fact, the Koran even speaks of Allah’s three daughters, if only to say that they should no longer be worshipped (Sura 53:19-20).


Although the Masonic religion has been able to successfully infiltrate most Christian denominations, it denies the very foundation of our faith by denying that salvation is through Christ alone and by eliminating prayer in the name of Jesus. Satan simply uses that organization to lead those that join it gradually, and by degrees, into idolatry. If you have any doubts, by all means get a copy of the book “Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite” by Albert Pike. The author of that book was a high-ranking Mason, and Masons regard it as one of the most authoritative books on Masonry. Yet, on page 422 we read, “Zeus is the primitive Source of all things; there is one God; one power, and one rule over all.”  That book goes on to speak well of all pagan deities while criticizing only of the Christian religion. Therefore, it should not surprise you to learn that Masons claim to worship the same god as the Mohammedans, and wear the crescent moon symbol of Allah.

[Pastors who remain silent while allowing those under their charge to join, or continue in, Masonic idolatry will answer to God (Ezekiel 33:6).


While Mormons try to pass themselves off as Christians, and claim to worship the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost what they are not likely to tell you is that they reject the doctrine of the Trinity, believe that millions of gods (and goddesses) exist, and claim that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are only three of those gods. One of their own “Apostles” put it this way, “God has a father, grandfather, great grandfather, great great grandfather, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, children, grandchildren, wives, etc., etc.” (Apostle Orson Pratt – The Seer, p. 132 and other references). Therefore, like the ancient pagans Mormons are clearly polytheistic. Furthermore, like the pagans, Mormons believe that the gods they worship have physical bodies [except for the “Holy Ghost” who they regard as a phantom] and sexual natures. However, the Bible clearly exposes those who attribute such characteristics to deity as idolaters (Romans 1:23).

Now because Mormons try to gain members by tricking people into believing that they are just another Christian denomination, some Mormons are not fully aware of what their religion teaches. In fact, one woman told me that she was a member of the Mormon Church for four years before she started to hear some of their weird doctrines. However, most Mormons know that they do not worship the omnipresent creator of the universe. For according to their mythology god was once a man, grew up on another planet (by a star called Kolab), has a physical body, has goddess wives, and earned the right to be a god by his works. While that is clearly not the God of the Bible, it is not significantly different from the ancient pagan concept of god. Like the Mormon god, the Roman god Jupiter (who was called the father of the gods) had a physical body, goddess wives, a father (Saturn), and a grandfather (Uranus).  For that reason, I see the Mormon religion as nothing more than warmed over paganism.


While followers of the Watchtower will insist that they worship Jehovah, their “Jehovah” is not the Jehovah “that was made flesh and dwelt among us” in the person of Christ Jesus (John 1:1-14). For the Jehovah of the Bible is not only our Father, but also our savior and redeemer (Isaiah 43:3,10,10,11, Isaiah 54:5). Therefore, when the Bible identifies Jesus as the “Mighty God” (Isaiah 9:6), the Watchtower simply explains away what the Bible says. In fact, they would rather claim that there are many “Mighty God’s” (Just like the pagans) than accept the words of scripture. And the Bible makes it clear that all who refuse to accept the word of the Apostles and prophets have a spirit of error (1 John 4:6).
Just as the Jehovah of the Watchtower is not the Jehovah of the Bible, the Christ of the Watchtower is not the Christ of the Bible. And because the Holy Spirit will never give the gift of faith to those who worship a false Christ, the children of the Watchtower can quote what the Bible says about faith in Christ without ever really believing it.


    The god who supposedly “used evolution to create man,” is not the God of the Bible. Moreover, the fact that the god of evolution is the origin and cause of pain, suffering and death, not only slanders the God of the Bible, but honors Satan (who is actually the source of pain, suffering, and death) by equating him with God (John 8:44, Romans 5:12). For that reason, I not only see theistic-evolution as a form of idolatry, but believe that the growing acceptance of homosexuality in many churches stems directly from their rejection of the true God in favor of the god of theistic-evolution (Romans 1:24-32).


     God has given us His Word so that we will not be deceived and led astray by false prophets. For that reason, Satan efforts will be directed at leading you away from what is actually written, by moving you to read unscriptural ideas into the text and to explain away any statements that do not seem to agree with your own ideas. Therefore, as it is written, “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8, Ezekiel 22:25).
