If you were to ask us which church or religion we belong to, we would tell you we fellowship with the body of Christ and question man’s concept of religion. The Lord Jesus rebuked the Jewish pharisees of His time and held them in contempt, admonishing their stiff necked religious beliefs and practices

 

In other words wherever the Word of God and the full gospel of Christ is taught and preached, that is our spiritual home and fellowship of choice. We fellowship with God’s people to be edified by the preaching of God's Word and the praise and worship of His people to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Not only because of who He is, but for all the wondrous and miraculous things that He has done, out of His never ending grace and mercy and love for His creation.

Christian Cults & many Religions are man made systems of rules and religious laws which results in bondage rather than true freedom which is only gained through faith in Christ.

“He whom the Son sets free is free indeed” (John 8: 36)

A PROFOUND OBSERVATION OF RELIGION

The history of religion generally, is the tragic tale of those who are morally, spiritually blind and deaf, yet who devise rituals and symbols in an attempt to "see" God and "hear" His voice and benefit from His power through means that the Bible condemns as idolatry and divination.
Excerpt: Dave Hunt(dec'd) Beyond Seduction, Chapter 10

An observation of mine is that religion is man's concept of God and what He teaches, whereas true Christianity, based upon the fundamental teachings of the scriptures relies on God's idea or revelation of Himself.“.....I say that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it” (Matt 16: 18)

The Evil that forms the Church of Rome and it's heretical Papacy:-

History clearly attests to the unforgivable damage that religion has wrought upon the cause of Christ and His church in the earth; most prominent among this group is the false religious system, the church of Rome, unfortunately in the name of Almighty God
Notably the evil aggression and slaughter of Jews & faithful Christians as the Pope's crusading legions swept across Europe in the middle ages, stands out as a prime testamony to “religion’s” extreme capacity for anti Christ behavior. Not to mention also, Rome's documented support for Hitler and his Nazi regime.

Although these wanton evil acts were carried out by a false faith, unfortunately the World, doesn’t often differentiate between false religion and the true church. (the body of Christ) So, as a result, any dishonor brought upon the false church, taints the reputation of the body of Christ at the same time, because they claim to be Christian and are falsely identified by the World's media as the Christian Church, which is false.

A notable contemporary example of this is the scandalous behavior exposed by the various worldwide examinations within the Roman Catholic Church, pertaining to allegations of Paedophilia among the priesthood. Fortunately God knows the truth and will hold all to account in the end.

It is a sad thing to reflect on just how few people caught up in Roman Catholicism, especially the priesthood might actually be Born Again. Only God would know who they are, if any.  That unless they can be evangelized and brought to Christ through faith alone, and thus removed from the bondage of Rome's false religious system, they are bound for hell and eternal damnation. So God has had us prepare this online Ministry, as much for the benefit of these poor deceived souls, as for the unsaved, unchurched sinner.

For the catholic, salvation does not come through personally receiving Christ as Lord, but is a lengthy process that begins with baptism and thereafter depends upon one's continued relationship to the Church. Rome's salvation comes through participation in the sacraments, penance, good works, suffering for one's sins and the sins of others here and/or in purgatory, indulgences to reduce time in purgatory, and almost endless masses and Rosaries said on one's behalf even after one's death.Catholic "evangelism" is by works, the very antithesis of "the gospel of the grace of God" (Acts:20:

If you feel uncomfortable with any of this, let us discover together what God has to say on the matter, in His Word which is all that should concern anyone.

God's word encourages believers to contend earnestly for the faith and reprove and admonish doctrinal error whenever & wherever it be found. False doctrinal Heresy and apostasy (as was prophesied) has been developing among most religious denominations around the world for many years now as they seek to bring all faiths together under one roof so to speak, forming a one world ecumenical church.

In the Epistle of James we discover two of only three references to religion in the whole bible, so the concept of religion doesn't seem to feature very favorably in God's plan for mankind:

“If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless. Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the World” (Jam 1: 26-27)

If you are a genuine seeker after God's truth, you need to be aware that some religious denominations as instituted by man have sometimes proven to be a stumbling block to the fundamental commission set before the Lord’s disciples.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations......teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you.....” (Matt 28 :19-20)

Mainly due to the preaching of false, heretical doctrine, especially in this end times period when so many are adopting a social/prosperity ecumenical gospel, where there is no mention of sin and repentance, many are sadly missing out on salvation, or departing from the faith altogether. Rather than the truth, they come with a message designed to give people what they want to hear, rather than what they need to hear, in order to bring them to the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

Now the Spirit (God's spirit) expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.... (1 Tim 4: 1-2)

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
(2 Tim 4: 3-4)

The bible scriptures are replete with warnings about false teachers in the end times, who will deceive even the elect if possible, with deceiving doctrines of demons, designed to keep people from salvation through the truth of God's Word.

“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many, And because lawlessness will abound, the love (for God) of many will grow cold, But he who endures to the end shall be saved” “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” (Matt 24: 11-13, 24)

It amounts to a watering down of the Gospel of Christ in order to attract more people into a church where they are not confronted with their sin and the need of a Savior, which is the very reason why Christ offered His life on Calvary’s cross, that through His shed blood, your sin is washed away, if you believe.

But, I hear you say, “how can I believe and be saved if I've not been taught the truth?
Well, I don't think you can claim this as an excuse any more , now that we have crossed paths, for everything you need to be saved is provided here at “Beyond Armageddon” for your edification.

“So then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom 10: 17)
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt 28:19-20)

We here at Beyond Armageddon, through the power of God's love that resides in our heart, invite you to join us. Let our faith be sufficient for you, if need be, for a time, until opportunity is given for God Himself to touch your own heart, when the reality of His truth becomes alive to you and your relationship with your creator is established.

Fear not what man says:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. (Prov 3:5-6)

For us, as it should be for all seekers of Gods' truth, in terms of what we believe and our faith, we only acknowledge what the bible has to say, not what any man claims, regardless of his “religious” reputation or standing in the community.

Man's idea of religion, in all it's various heretical shades, cults and denominations, is an abomination to God, and as the primary weapon of Satan in his battle to destroy the “Church”, is a destroyer of souls, and robs anyone who adopts it's practices, of the truth, and condemns them to a lost eternity, separated from God.

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.
And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber. (2Pet 2 : 1-3)

Be careful whom you trust when it comes to the things of God. There are many false prophets out there; smooth talkers with flattering words, just waiting to pounce on unsuspecting souls. Be guided by God:-

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones.
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. (Prov 16: 24-25)
