If it is true that secret societies of Satanists have infiltrated the Christian church, and many churches have gone astray from the truth of God, then the next plausible question is, is the Christian church corrupt? Before we answer that question, we must first understand what the meaning of corrupt is. Here we look at the dictionary as our base on what we are talking about when we say corrupt:
to change from good to bad in morals, manners, or actions
to become tainted or rotten
to become morally debased
to cause disintegration or ruin
Here we can clearly see that if we are speaking of corruption, we are speaking of changing the Gospel message, the truth of the Word of God, and/or the authority and sanctity of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This means, anything that takes away from these things, or changes them in any way, is corrupt.
I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.
In my last post I revealed the many truths I have witnessed of secret Satanism taking place in our Christian churches. Christian leaders and congregation members living lives as God-fearing individuals, who have mind controlled alternate personalities that come forward and lead them in satanic rituals and worship. This is all done in secret, as the occult always keeps their true agenda hidden from the world.
How can we tell if the Christian church as a whole is corrupt, or if it just sects of Christianity, or even just certain churches? As we look at the definition of corrupt, we must use this, as well as the Word of God, to closely examine the Christian church today.
For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
2 Timothy 3:2-5
I have been to many churches in my area, as well as some outside of the area I live in. I have been in Baptist churches, Presbyterian churches, non-denominational churches, and Pentecostal churches. On the outside looking in, no one could take fault with these churches. Some were great and some were small. All had their hand in missions, whether it be in the community or in the world at large.
Upon closer examination of these churches, I think anyone could find one fault or another. There is no one church that is perfect to everyone. Church is an institution of man, and man is full of sin. There is no such thing as a perfect church, just a church that strives it’s best to follow Jesus Christ and spread the Gospel message.
Yet how can one know whether a church is a good church that follows Christ, or a corrupt church? If all churches appear to be good and godly to the outside world, then what parameters could one use to make a determination? The truth is, there is no one thing, outside of Christ Himself, that is going to lead you to the true heart of a church. I have been in churches that look perfect. There is no flaw in them. Yet I have sat in their worship service and felt the witchcraft and the astral rituals tearing me apart. I then would go home and try to pull myself out of the pit of hell for hours afterwards.
God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
The early church started very simply. Jesus spread the message of God’s love and of our need to repent of our sins. He lived with men and women whom He personally trained to teach these inerrant truths and continue to spread them throughout the world. There was no church building, but indeed corruption had found a way in through Judas. Judas Iscariot lived as one of Jesus disciples and trained with him for years. Although he walked the walk in appearances, his heart and mind were deceived and he aligned himself with the devil.
No one is exempt from becoming corrupt. We all fall short of the glory of God and all have hearts that will lead us astray. We go where things feel good and where we can be most comfortable. However, Jesus was never comfortable in this world. He never even had a place to call His own or lay His head. He moved from place to place, condemned and hated by His own people, mocked by His own family.
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15
When we take a closer look at what the Gospel message is, we find that it has nothing to do with comfort or convenience and everything to do with dying to self, even in the midst of the most severe trials life can bring. It has to do with going out of your way to be uncomfortable and putting others above yourself. There is no room for out selfish regimes and paltry idols that we build in our creature comforts. There is only room enough for One. Christ. Otherwise, why are we even here?
Continually the message of the Gospel has been watered down and even removed from the Christian church. Who do we have to blame? Is it the generations before us? Or does the blame rest squarely on our own shoulders? If we are not standing up for the truth, and speaking out in its name in love, then how have we truly brought justice to the name ‘Christian’? We have made our comfortable spot in this world, and we will fight to preserve it at any cost.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
That is exactly what I see when I look at our churches today. It goes beyond the visible to the hidden and secret lives of those who make up the church. Yes, Satan has infiltrated our churches in the deepest levels, but more than that, we have opened the door wide for him and made him a home there. How? Because we refuse to see the very corruption before our eyes is one of our own making.
The moment we as individuals decided to stop examining our hearts for sin and grievances towards God, is the moment the serpent crawled in. He not only crawled into our churches, but into our homes and our hearts. We are so busy looking for everyone else’s wrong we can’t even see our own. We have sinned against God, and while He is willing to forgive us a million times over, we still have the job of recognizing where we have cheated on Him and given our hearts to another.
It was so easy for the devil to creep in to the church. All he needed were those who wanted power and money more than God. The price was high, but they sold their souls to the devil. And now their legacy’s live on as our churches our built as temples to greed, sin and immorality. So I ask you, how do you know that a church is corrupt? If it has four walls and is run by humans, then the chances are, yes, it is.
Many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am he!’ and they will lead many astray.
Many will say that it can’t be possible for every church to be corrupt. Surely there is a church that hasn’t bowed down to idols and whored themselves over to Babylon. If a church has leaders who have corruption in their hearts, then the whole flock has gone astray.
The Bible has given us many signs and warnings that these things were to come, and indeed are already here. While we wait for the Jews to build a new temple so the antichrist can come onto the scene, we have ignored the fact that Lucifer has already taken the throne of power in our churches and is reigning among us right now. We are looking for godly men and women to help us and teach us, yet we instead idolize and worship them as though they were our lifeline to God Himself.
Who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.
2 Thessalonians 2:4
It is not enough to go to church every week, or go to Bible studies and even lead one. None of that matters. God does not care about our meaningless sacrifices and He definitely does not want our second-hand offerings that we just took off the alter to another God. He wants our hearts, and He wants our pure worship. Not because He demands it, but because He deserves it. God is goodness and love, and there is nothing in this world that has any goodness or love in it that didn’t originate from God. He is the creator of everything in existence, and when everything in this world falls away, God will still stand. He is the Alpha and the Omega, and nothing can stand against Him.
Yet because of His great love and mercy, He has deemed us worthy enough to be adopted as sons and daughters, to be made righteous and cleansed before Him, remaining in His holy presence even in the stench of our sins.
For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect.
How can we turn a corrupt church around? Is there even a chance or is it just too late? For with God, nothing is impossible. He is the Almighty and nothing can stop Him. We need to go back, all the way back, to John the Baptist. Repent and be saved, for the Kingdom of God is near.
I am not a perfect person, nor do I claim to be. I have had to learn all of these truths the hard way. It was only through my submission to God, and my desire to be in the presence of Jesus, that He was able to lead me to where I am now. Week by week I have to go in to a healing session with Jesus to hear about secret areas of my heart that are standing against Him. And week by week, sometimes even day by day, I have to repent and renounce for the things I have done.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
1 John 1:8
God knows my heart. I am not evil, just because I have been given over to evil so many times in my life. So I come before Him, humble and ashamed of my sin, yet able to confess it to Him and let Him cleanse me of my inequities. Inequities in which it seems there is never an end. Yet in this life we are not here to achieve perfection. We are here to love and be loved by the One who made us all. We are here to learn the truth of who our Father in Heaven is, in ways that we would otherwise never know. And it is only through our submission and repentance that we can see how absolutely wonderful He truly is.
It is only our selfish pride in the form of shame that keeps us from a contrite heart. God despises the proud but shows favor to those who are willing to fall on their face in humility. Is it easy? No. Was it easy when Christ was sweating drops of blood before He went of to His death sentence? No. Yet He humbled Himself in favor of love, and because of His loving sacrifice, we can know a love greater than any shame or sin.
But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.
