There are tens of thousands of different religions in the world. From these religions, which one is the greatest? Those who practice these religions believe in their own respective religions and share their teachings, because they think that it is the greatest. The words and actions of a person born and raised in China will reflect the Chinese culture, and the words and actions of a person born and raised in Russia will reflect the Russian culture. There are huge differences in cultures among the countries, nations, and races in the world today of the 21st century.
As stated in the main reference verses, there is the work of re-creation in Genesis, and according to John 1:1-5, without God and the Word, “nothing was made that has been made.” Why would the one God create tens of thousands of different religions? Did God really create them? Perhaps a deceiving spirit who acts like the true God exists and deceives mankind. Perhaps this deceiving spirit created many different kinds of religions. Then how many gods and spirits exist? The world is complicated. The world is formless and empty and filled with darkness due to the countless religions. Which one is true and which one is false?
We saw in the 6,000 years of history in the Bible, the differences among the worlds that God once guided—the world of Adam, the world of Noah, the world of Moses, and the world of Jesus’ First Coming. The world in the Second Coming has its differences too. There is a reason why many religions exist today and a reason for their differences. The Bible states, “Do not believe every spirit.” Take a look at 1 Jn 4:1.
Even though there is only one true God, there was also an archangel created by God, who trusted in its own strength and wisdom. The archangel betrayed its own Creator, the true God, and called himself a god (refer to 2 Thes 2:1-4, Isa 14:12-20, Ez 28:1-19, Gn 3). The archangel who betrayed in the spiritual realm became Satan, and as a result, a group of Satan came to existence even in the physical realm. Satan declared war against the true God (refer to Rv 13, 12). Many religions exist today, because there is a religion created by the true God and other religions created by the spirit who betrayed.
Man tends to think that all that he has—what he received, his thoughts, and all he invented—came from the true God. He teaches them to others, thinking that he is delivering the best moral instructions and the best truth. However, there is only one true God, and all that comes from the true God is consistent and one. Then, where did all these religions and scriptures come from? Just because a religion teaches to speak kind words does not mean that these instructions are from the true God. It is written in 2 Cor 11:13-15, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” Satan imitates God and creates his own “Way” to deceive and mislead the people. This is false religion. There are many false religions, and their believers have the misconception that these came from the true God.
The true religion from God has continued since the time of Genesis to the time of Revelation. Never did it unlawfully imitate other religions nor pretend to be them. However, false religions have unlawfully imitated God in many ways in the 6,000 years of history as seen in the Bible. This is a scheme to deceive. The word and the work of God provide clear and thorough evidence of the genealogy and eras that came down through the years. God had made a covenant (prophecy), and when the gospel of the kingdom of heaven was preached to the whole world as a testimony to all nations (Mt 24:14), He fulfilled the prophecy accordingly.
The covenant (prophecy) God had made with Abraham fulfilled at the time of Moses, the covenant made with the Old Testament prophets fulfilled during Jesus’ first coming, and the prophecies of the New Testament made through Jesus and Apostle John has fulfilled without adding or taking away from them (refer to Jn 19:30, Rv 21:6). God does nothing without revealing His plan (refer to Am 3:7). If there are no prophecies and fulfillment, then on what basis are you going to believe?
Being good and kindhearted are basic etiquettes for man to keep. These are not enough for religion. Religion is the teaching of the Spirit. Instructions to be good and kindhearted are taught in schools and homes in the world. They are simply the knowledge and the commandments of man that are completely different from the promises God prophesied. God told us to believe when the promises are fulfilled (Jn 13:19, 14:29).
In Deuteronomy 18:18-22, God said, “I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account. But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death. You may say to yourselves, ‘How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?’ If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.”
If a religion and its scripture are indeed from the true God, the scripture should have contents on history, moral instructions, prophecy and fulfillment. If it only has history and men’s commandments and no prophecies that are to fulfill and no content about their fulfillment, then the words on that scripture are not from the true God. There is no need to continue waiting or believing in it. A scripture that has promises that will fulfill in the future is believable if it also has contents about the physical entities that appeared according to the ancient prophecies. A religion cannot call itself a religion simply because it teaches the empty commandments of men such as, “Be good and kindhearted, and lead a good and kind life.”
The time of judgment has come for the religions. All religions must become one. Each must bring its scripture, and before the people of all nations, must examine and confirm which one is the true religion. We must select the religion and scripture that are the most believable. From my observations, the scriptures and religions of the world are simply the knowledge and commandments of men. And their believers have fallen deeply into their own religion.
The Christian scripture is one of many scriptures available. It consists of 66 books and contains many prophecies written by different prophets who saw and heard them from God. It also has contents on their fulfillment. The content covers from the time of Adam until today, and how promises were made in advance in each era about the coming of a pastor. This scripture is called the Bible. The Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, the Orthodox Church, and the Protestant Church use the same Bible for their lives of faith.
God fulfilled the covenant He had made with Abraham at the time of Moses, and He fulfilled the promises He had made with the Old Testament prophets at the First Coming of Jesus. Jesus was the promised pastor of the Old Testament. Many prophets prophesied about him. Prophet Isaiah wrote, “The virgin will be with a child (Jesus)” (Isa 7:14). Prophet Micah wrote, “But you, Bethlehem […] out of you will come for me one who will be a ruler over Israel” (Mi 5:2). Prophet Hosea wrote, “out of Egypt I called my son” (Hos 11:1). And Prophet Zechariah wrote, “See your king comes to you […] riding on a donkey […] He will proclaim peace to the nations” (Zec 9:9-10). All these prophecies fulfilled. Wouldn’t you believe in the promise and wait for it to fulfill if, in the past, there had already been fulfillment of the promises (prophecies)? The promised pastor of the New Testament is also prophesied in this manner. But other scriptures, other religions, have neither prophecies nor fulfillment.
God has spoken regarding Today, the era of the New Testament, that all religions in the world are corrupt. Even if believers possess the true holy Scripture, they themselves have become corrupt. That is why the end of age for religion has come. Although the holy Scripture, the Bible, is perfect, if the believers are corrupt, the Scripture becomes a useless book. God will fulfill the promises of the New Testament. Anyone who perceives and knows the promises will receive salvation like Noah, Lot, and the disciples of Jesus. But those who do not perceive due to their corruption, their own thoughts, their own judgment, will not escape destruction. Therefore, we must act according to God’s will.
The true God has given us the true Bible, in which He recorded thorough details of the things that will fulfill at the time of the New Testament. There are contents about the betrayers, the destroyers, and the savior. There are details on who the betrayers are and how and why they betrayed. It is written that the destroyers are the pastors of Satan, as well and explains how they destroyed, who they destroyed, and with what they destroyed. God also made known in detail about the kind of individual He chooses, in the midst of these events, to be the savior. He explains how, when, where, and what the savior uses to bring salvation.
How can anyone receive salvation if he does not know the three mysteries and the physical entities of the betrayer, the destroyer, and the savior? To whom can he give salvation if he himself is corrupt and ruined? How can he know these things when his way to the door of heaven is blocked? This is the reason the events of the end of age are like those in the days of Noah and Lot (Lk 17:26-30). Isn’t the devil killing the pastors who belong to him, and are not the pastors killing their own congregation members and leading them to the devil? Young adults and students criticize, swear, and curse others in anti-café (blogs and discussion forums). Their words of lawlessness show that the morals of this world have plummeted to the ground. These actions are not taught in schools or at home. If the young adults and students did not learn these actions from the pastors of their denominations, where else did they learn them? Their churches should be called, the “churches of the devil” rather than the “churches of the world.” What would God do with these corrupt religions? That is why He spoke of the end of the world, the end of age for religions, and promised that He will re-create everything.
Re-creation is happening now. Come! Check for yourself. Believe and receive salvation.
