Why are there so many religions in the world?

According to the Bible God set up only one. “One Lord, one faith, one baptism” Ephesians 4:5. That means that a lot of religions are in error. And a lot of people are going to be disappointed in the end. As Jesus said, “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:22,23

The difference between a true religion and a false religion is that  the true religion teaches that people are born in sin and are under the power of Satan and the Spirit of Satan dwells in them. The true religion teaches how to get the spirit of Satan out of you because the Spirit of God will not dwell in a person who has the devil or the spirit of Satan in them.

If you think you are right, how did you get the spirit of Satan out of you? There is only one scripture in the Bible that teaches how to get the devil out of a person. It is a mystery to  the world but not to God’s people. If you live your whole life having the spirit of Satan in you, you cannot serve God and you will spend eternity with Satan.

So the first step that a person must take is to get the devil out of them. It doesn’t matter who you are. As Jesus said to Paul, “ Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.” Acts 26: 17,18

And as you can see in that scripture it speaks about people being under the power of Satan. That’s why Jesus said that a person must be born again because people are born with the power of Satan. No matter what you do in this world, if you never get the devil out of you you will never be able to understand the Holy Scriptures. As the scriptures say, “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”  1 Corinthians 2: 12-14 
   
And in Romans 8:6-8 ,”For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.”

Many people will be angry for what is being spoken because the devil in you does not want to come out of you but to continue deceiving you so he can stay in you. As the Bible says “ and Satan,which deceiveth the whole world” Revelations 12:9

Prophet Andre?? Well that answers the question why there are so many religions in the world. People find it easier to present their thinking as the revealed truth than finding the real truth.

Well, I think you made a good first step by joining this forum.

Prophet Andre,

I notice that on your website some of the secret gnostic knowledge you have access to is whether or not the Holy Trinity exists. I can see how to some seven Oecumenical Synods and 2000 years of Christian Tradition would not be adequate on this point, so please share with us your secret knowledge imparted from on high.

And what of the biblical call to "contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints"? (Jude 3)  If the true faith in Christ was delivered once for all to the saints, why do we need a Prophet Andre to reveal anything new to us?

Nice. I was just thinking the same thing. What new teaching has Prophet Andre have to offer in 2008 that has not already been revealed?

Dear prophet Andre,

 It looks like we're headed for some troubled waters;  what lottery numbers should I play?  Please send them via PM so none of the greedy OC.net people will steal them from me. Roll Eyes

Prophet Andre,

This is an old thread, I realise, but it's Revelation not Revelations.

OP is a hit and run poster - haven't seen him since his first post.  No "fresh" recruits exist for him in this forum.

But good news for him: The end of false religion is near!

I received the above article as a brochure from a door-to-door Jehovah's Witness last year. The OP sounded remarkably similar to me.

Too bad Prophet Andre has decided not to join us to continue this discussion.  Now I'll never be able to join this "true faith!!!!"  I feel totally deprived...  Roll Eyes
