THE END OF FALSE RELIGION IS NEAR!

A WORLDWIDE MESSAGE

  • What is false religion? Lightning striking the earth
  • How will it end?
  • How will you be affected?

What is false religion? Are you distressed about crimes committed in the name of religion? Do the warfare, terrorism, and corruption perpetrated by those who claim to serve God offend your sense of justice? Why does religion seem to be at the root of so many problems?

The fault lies, not with all religion, but with false religion. A widely respected religious figure, Jesus Christ, indicated that false religion produces bad works, just as a rotten tree produces worthless fruit. (Matthew 7:15-17) What fruit does false religion yield?

1. Soldiers in battle; 2. A cemetery; 3. A priest

False Religion . . .

MEDDLES IN WAR AND POLITICS: Across Asia and beyond, says the journal Asiaweek, power-hungry leaders are cynically manipulating people’s religious sentiments for their own needs. As a result, the journal warns: The world threatens to sink into madness. A prominent religious leader in the United States declared: You’ve got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. His solution? Blow them all away in the name of the Lord. By contrast, the Bible says: If anyone makes the statement: I love God, and yet is hating his brother, he is a liar. (1 John 4:20) Jesus even said: Continue to love your enemies. (Matthew 5:44) How many religions can you think of whose members engage in war?

SPREADS FALSE DOCTRINE: Most religions teach that the soul or spirit is some invisible part of a human that survives the death of the physical body. By means of this teaching, many of these religions exploit their members, charging money to pray for departed souls. However, the Bible teaches a different doctrine. The soul that is sinning “it itself will die”. (Ezekiel 18:4) The living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all. (Ecclesiastes 9:5) Jesus taught that the dead will be resurrected an unnecessary action if humans had an immortal soul. (John 11:11-25) Does your religion teach that the soul does not die?

TOLERATES IMMORAL SEX: In Western lands, church groups ordain gay and lesbian members of the clergy and urge governments to recognize same-sex marriages. Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated religious leaders who have sexually abused children. What, though, does the Bible teach? It plainly states: Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men . . . will inherit God’s kingdom. (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) Do you know of religions that condone immoral sex? What does the future hold for religions that produce rotten fruit? Jesus warned: Every tree not producing fine fruit gets cut down and thrown into the fire. (Matthew 7:19) Yes, false religion will be chopped down and destroyed! But how and when will this happen? A prophetic vision recorded in the Bible book of Revelation, chapters 17 and 18, provides the answer. False religion exerts influence over the kings of the earth 1. A harlot riding a beast with seven heads; 2. The beast destroying the harlot

Get out of her, my people

How will false religion end?

Picture the scene. A harlot is sitting on the back of a fearsome beast. The beast has seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:1-4) Whom does the harlot represent? She exerts influence over the kings of the earth. She dresses in purple, uses incense, and is exceedingly wealthy. In addition, by means of her spiritistic practice, all the nations are misled. (Revelation 17:18; 18:12, 13, 23) The Bible helps us to see that this harlot is a worldwide religious entity. She depicts, not any one religion, but all religions that produce rotten fruit.

The beast that the harlot rides pictures the world’s political powers. (Revelation 17:10-13) False religion straddles the back of this political beast, attempting to influence its decisions and to control its direction. Soon, though, an amazing event will take place. The ten horns that you saw, and the wild beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her devastated and naked, and will eat up her fleshy parts and will completely burn her with fire. (Revelation 17:16) In a sudden, shocking move, the world’s political powers will turn on false religion and completely destroy her! What will prompt this action? The Bible book of Revelation answers: God put it into their hearts to carry out his thought. (Revelation 17:17) Yes, God will call false religion to account for all the despicable acts she has committed in his name. In a stroke of perfect justice, he will use her political paramours as his instrument of execution. What must you do if you do not want to share the fate of false religion? Get out of her, my people, urges God’s messenger. (Revelation 18:4) Indeed, now is the time to flee from false religion! But to where can you flee? Not into atheism, since its future is also bleak. (2 Thessalonians 1:6-9) The only haven is within true religion. How can you identify true religion?

How to identify true religion

What good fruit should true religion produce? Matthew 7:17. 1. A group of happy people from various nationalities; 2. An opened Bible; 3. A young girl hugging her mother

True Religion . . .

PRACTICES LOVE: True worshippers are no part of the world, are not divided by race or culture, and display love among themselves. (John 13:35; 17:16; Acts 10:34, 35) Rather than killing one another, they are willing to die for one another. 1 John 3:16. TRUSTS GOD’S WORD: Instead of teaching tradition and commands of men as doctrines, true religion bases its doctrine on God’s Word, the Bible. (Matthew 15:6-9) Why? Because all Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight. 2 Timothy 3:16. STRENGTHENS FAMILIES AND UPHOLDS HIGH MORAL STANDARDS: True religion trains husbands to love their wives as their own bodies, helps wives to develop deep respect for their husbands, and teaches children to be obedient to their parents. (Ephesians 5:28, 33; 6:1) In addition, those entrusted with positions of authority must have exemplary morals. 1 Timothy 3:1-10. Does any religion meet these standards? The book Holocaust Politics, published in 2001, says: If more people practiced versions of what the Jehovah’s Witnesses preach and practice, the Holocaust could have been prevented and genocide would scourge the world no more. Indeed, in 235 lands, Jehovah’s Witnesses do not just preach the Bible’s moral standards they live by them. We urge you to ask Jehovah’s Witnesses to help you learn what God requires of you so that you can worship him acceptably. Now is the time to act. Do not delay. The end of false religion is near! Zephaniah 2:2, 3.

    RealAct.net, I have done a 100,000 research website of every church in my large town. I totally agree with your summary about “false religion.” The rotten fruit associated. On the 2nd page, however, your sentence reads “The fault lies, not with all religion”. But this is not in the bible. You’ve stated this “as fact”. All churches say this directly or by implication. Do you really believe your religion does not “exploit members” as well? It’s impossible for a denomination to be righteous. I have never met one righteous person in my life. However, I agree “the world’s political powers will turn on false religion and completely destroy her!” I see no one actually resisting the established church like I do. Jesus did this. The whole world has ended up doing none of Jesus’s words. It’s not rocket science, just do it. Do EVERYTHING.

    Timy, thanks for your sincere comments. I understand what you mean, however some things are not in the bible and we believe them and see them as truth because common sense tells us so, for example the bible does not condemn drug use however we know for a fact it is bad to our health and mental sanity, same way the bible doesn’t explicitly say what is stated on that section of the article however it gives us clear clues on how to identify false religion.

    I don’t believe my religion is a no fault all righteous organization however I do believe it is the closest to truth out there despite imperfections, I invite you to examine it yourself and perhaps come and visit us at one of our Kingdom Halls whenever you have the time.

    Again thank you for visiting my page; feel free to contact me, and I hope to hear from you again.

    What if all religions on earth teaching the knowledge of a good God and an evil Devil? Are the teachings of the fruit, from the many branches of religions that make up the tree of the knowledge of good and evil at [Genesis 1:17 “But as for the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you must not eat from it, for in the day you eat from it you will positively die.” ?] Do you think if we stop eating of this tree we can keep on living?

    Hi JD Atwell, thank you for posting, since there was no religion when Adam And Eve were here how could that be applied to them? in present day yeah you could kind of say something a little abstract like that, however how do you position it at the time of the first human couple?

    When you see Jerusalem surrounded by encamped armies, then know that the desolating of her has drawn near.—Luke 21:20.
    In 70 C.E., the Roman armies returned, attacked the city of Jerusalem , and destroyed its temple. Divine judgment was executed upon that Jewish system of things. Something similar is about to take place in our day. Elements within the United Nations will be involved in the execution of divine judgment. Just as the Roman armies of the first century were designed to maintain the Pax Romana (Roman Peace), the United Nations of today is intended to be a peacekeeping instrument. Although the Roman armies tried to ensure relative safety throughout the then known world, they became the desolater of Jerusalem . Likewise today, Bible prophecy indicates that militarized powers within the United Nations will see religion as a disturbing element and will act to destroy modern-day Jerusalem—Christendom—as well as the rest of Babylon the Great.—Rev. 17:12-17. w 9/15/05 12, 13
    (Note modern day Jerusalem is Christendom, they like Jerusalem at one time had the truth but have rejected the truth and have become an apostate nation)

    Babylon the great was a city that fell over night. God put it the hearts of the people who were in charge of closing the gate, to leave it open. And in turn babylon fell in one night. Bablyon the great symbolizes false religion that exists today, and just like god did in that time, god will put it into the hearts of the political powers of the world to turn their backs on false religion and expose her for what she is. Babylon the great is symbolic in the same way Noah and the Ark is symbolic to today. People were eating, drinking, marrying, and carrying on their lives and took no notice untill the flood came and swept them all away, just as the truth is preached door to door today and people will take no notice untill armageddon comes, and men will beat themselves in lamentation. These stories and even in the bible are perfect parallels to the events and imminent destruction that will soon take place. God said Babylon would fall in one night, and it did. God said the flood would come and destroy all who did not heed Noahs warning, and it came. God said all the wicked people and those not doing his will, will be destroyed in armageddon, and they will.

    Time is short, Jehovah’s witnesses are Noah, false religion is babylon, and the truth being preached is the same as what Noah preached, and the modern day flood that is armageddon is coming. People need to stay awake, and for the sake of their lives they need to welcome in the truth and flee from this system of things and babylon in order that they also may be part of the new system of things. Is pride and tradition worth your life?
