True Religion Works
many religions in the world today, and each claiming its own
legitimacy. How is one to know truth from error?
The answer is simple for honest and sincere seekers -- True
religion works. Every magician has his weakness: the truth
always reveals his seeming great power, ability or knowledge to
have been a mere trick, a sleight of hands, or a quick hidden
secret maneuver. Likewise, every false religion has its weakness
-- like a magician, there's something up his sleeve -- so every
false religion must be secretive, hidden, crafty, deceitful,
pulling the wool over the eyes of the intrigued observers lest
they find out what they thought to be power and greatness was
simply a prank, and they were the greater fools for believing
fear, ignorance and sorcery always go hand-in-hand, while light
is the all-time exposer and revealer of truth and knowledge
thereby bringing freedom and peace. Shed a little light
on the subject. True religion works. It is not
fabricated; it uses no mask. Like gold, it can be judged,
critiqued, examined, tested, proved, tried -- and found to be
exactly what it claims to be. Fool's gold, however, would resist
testing if it was seeking to be passed off as real gold, because
it simply cannot pass the test of being gold; it is not genuine.
because there is an abundance of fool's gold, we do not assume
there is no genuine gold. Just because there are many frauds, we
do not assume there is no truth. Just because there are many
false religions does not mean there is no true religion. The
very fact there are magicians, fabrications, and false religions
is all the more evidence that there is something so real and so
valuable and so enduring that it is so heavily counterfeited by
religion resists investigation, but true religion can stand all
interrogation and will remain.
magician successfully pulls the wool over the eyes of a million
observers, does that mean he has real power, knowledge and
greatness? Or does it rather mean his followers are not wise to
his clever tricks, and are to some degree his fools? History
testifies that millions of people can be deceived. The Bible
bears witness that the devil has deceived the entire world. The
Devil is the master trickster and deceiver and fraud. He is
called a dragon and a liar, but he can appear as an angel of
light. It is only by the light of God's Word that mankind can be
freed from the tricks of the Devil who uses all religions as he
pleases to keep the people under his spell, his power and his
shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
religion works. It is not reserved for one day of the week, or
one building in town, but it influences every aspect of life
Technological And false religion harms all these areas of life.
Religion always sits on top and governs what's underneath. When
a society is governed by false religion, it suffers in politics,
economics, society, learning, arts and technology.
True Religion is reasonable. It can be argued and
defended. It is absolute and unchanging. When Martin Luther in
1517 was willing to debate the entire Roman Catholic Church
which held the world in its power; it was the truth that
overcame the bondage Rome held over the world. He shined the
light and the Dark Ages went away. One of his "95 Theses" which
he derived asked if the Pope had the power to free anyone from
purgatory, why not free them all? What could they say? The world
began to see what wool was pulled over their eyes for so long,
because the truth came into the picture. True religion is
reasonable and exposes everything for what it is.
True religion sets free all who believe it. John Bunyan
has written, "Stone walls do not a prison make nor iron bars a
cage." A person with true religion is free, not matter what
circumstances he is presently in -- whether sickness, war,
imprisonment or danger. Find the religion that has set more
people free and done more good and help to individuals,
families, governments, states, etc. and you will find the one
that works. What religion liberates from bondage, ignorance,
poverty, sin, death and ruin? What religion has a track record
of success and blessing?
important to note that the greatness of America was due to her
religion and nothing else. It was Christianity -- genuine
Christianity -- that caused America to become the greatest
nation of the world. It is now the rejection of true religion
and the acceptance of false religions that is causing America to
sink in all areas -- Political, Economical, Social,
Intellectual, Aesthetic, Technological. When a society rejects
the way, the truth and the life, it can only deteriorate,
corrupt and die. The public school setting is a perfect picture
of this to all honest observers.
religion has ever produced the Freedom of the Press, Freedom of
Speech, Freedom of Assembly? Has any Muslim nation? What false
religion can boast of an Alexander Graham Bell, or Handel, or
Newton, or Bach, or Pasteur? A study of great inventors and
achievers and musicians always points to the influence of
Christianity, because true religion works.
History of Civilization is the History of Western Civilization.
There is no real history in the East until the West brought the
influence of Christianity. There was no development or
improvement in areas or jungles around the world until the
influence of Christianity reached them. Education and learning
and technological improvements all flourish under the influence
of Christianity and wane when it is removed. The American
Indians did not have an industrial revolution, Reformation,
advancement in technology, etc. They were savages because they
were destitute of true religion. It is important that the first
Bible printed in this country was in an Indian dialect -- true
missionaries always bring the first ray of help to those living
under the bondage of false religion.
one time, all men everywhere knew the truth. The Bible,
God's word, tells us of a universal flood which covered the
world about 4000 years ago. Only eight people on the Ark were
saved, and the Bible says, by them was the whole earth
overspread. At that time all people on earth knew the truth, but
as they spread abroad populating the world, they began to lose
and forget and corrupt the knowledge of the truth they once had.
All false religions of the world today are mere corruptions of
the truth men once knew.
True religion has existed from the beginning of time and shall
last to the end of time. The God who created Adam of
the dust of the ground and told him what to believe is the God
of Abraham, and Moses and David and Paul and genuine Christians
today. Jesus was not the latest new religion. He was and
continues to be the only religion. He said, "Abraham rejoiced to
see my day." Ishmael did not retain the religion of his father
Abraham, but became as the prophecy stated, "he shall be a wild
man." The Arabs have been a wild people since their father
Ishmael. They have rejected the faith of Abraham as have their
brethren the Jews, who also reject Jesus, and it is no wonder
their religion does not work. They are a cruel, merciless,
people who conquer by sword and threats and fear and blood.
Christianity is so much greater able to do more with one pen of
truth than a thousand swords of fright. The pen is still
mightier than the sword. Try using the pen in a Muslim state and
see if you don't get the sword. They are at enmity with the
Word, because the Word brings freedom life and liberty from
their bondage and oppression.
Christianity conquers by the power of truth and
liberates the soul. Islam must use the sword and force its
converts. See how Christianity is so much better, bringing
peace, joy, happiness, love, hope and contentment. These
concepts are foreign to Islam and all false religions because
false religions are not genuine. Only true religion works.
God has revealed what we are to believe and how we are
to live in His Word, The Bible. It is only to be expected that
the devil would do what magic he could to produce as many
corruptions, imitations, confusions as possible to blur people
from knowing what is the correct Bible. He has produced his own
multiple Bibles to trick the masses, but Jesus assures, My sheep
hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and they
shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my
hands. God's true children will be persuaded by and able to
identify true religion.
It is only
to be expected that the devil would fabricate Christianity and
produce his own counterfeit versions. How do we know who is
really a Christian and who is a fraud? Yea, let God be true, but
every man a liar. True religion works. The reason most
Christianity of today is such a mockery and failing misery, is
because it simply is not true, but is a fabrication from the
churches claim to want to save the world, but have the same
statistics as the world, it is evident something is wrong with
their religion -- where is the power? When churches claim to
want to change the world, but change with the world and pattern
themselves after the world, they reveal no other power but that
received from the world. So, who needs such a church to escape
from this world?
one of the requirements for a Pastor that he must be able to
rule well his own house, having his children in subjection with
all gravity. Now, when modern day professing preachers claim to
be of God, but have children who are themselves a disgrace to
Christianity, they give greater evidence of being the devil's
magicians who have merely managed to trick their followers, than
true servants of the living God. If a man can't persuade his own
family to embrace his religion, how does he think he shall
persuade others who spend less time with him? Only by the latest
magic. The Bible promises, Train up a child in the way he should
go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it -- That's a
religion with power -- that religion works.
says in many places that in the last days there shall be a
multitude of magicians who will use Christianity for their own
sinful motives. They will use trickery, deceit, fabrication and
subtle twisting of Scripture to keep in bondage their simple
followers. Many shall be deceived and err because they know not
the Scriptures nor the power of God.
True religion is not determined or measured by popular opinion.
One man who knows the truth is better off than a million
deceived followers of the latest, greatest magician yet. The
Bible says that deceiver is yet to come -- the Antichrist -- and
all the world shall worship him, except for those few whose
names God has already written in the Book of Life.
deceived? Have you been too long enamored by religious
magicians? Can you even tell who the magicians are? Do you have
the light of God's word directing your way and the Spirit of God
bearing witness to the truth? Do you know the truth? Are you
free? Turn back to the Bible; Turn back to real Christianity;
Turn back to God's only way of salvation from sin and death and
hell, and you will find that --
True Religion Works.
