Everywhere I look, idols and cults are misleading the people from a meaningful relationship with the one and only living God. I am horrified and dismayed by the path to immorality and willing denial of God’s word. Due to politically correct speech, no one would dare call everything that twists or ignores God’s Holy Bible, which describes God’s own bridge to salvation, a cult. Space precludes listing all the so-called religions which are actually cults by way of scripture’s one way of telling the absolute truth: if any religion is made up from the mind of man, it will not honor Jesus Christ as God’s only son and path to salvation. It is that profound and that complex, yet simple.

So, sad to say, the following large “religious” groups are all wasting their time and misplaced allegiance with their religious rituals: Mormons, Christian Scientists, Scientologists, Wiccans, Goddess/Earth/Druid worship, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists. This is not hate speech and non-inclusiveness. Truth is truth whether or not a person chooses to accept, believe and submit to it. God calls on anyone who wants to be saved to repent of their sins, arrogance, idols and false worship and turn to Him through the sacrifice of His son on the cross 2,000 years ago.

Christ’s apostle, John, through the writing inspired by God’s own Holy Spirit sums up this eternal truth while part of Jesus’ earthly ministry circle of apostles in the Bible book named for him. This truth could save then, and is still saving 2 millenia later:

“No one has gone up to heaven except the Son of Man (Jesus), who came down from there. And the Son of Man must be lifted up, just as that metal snake was lifted up by Moses in the desert. Then everyone who has faith in the Son of Man will have eternal life. God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. God did no send his Son into the world to condemn its people. He sent him to save them! No one who has faith in God’s son will be condemned. But everyone who doesn’t have faith in him has already been condemned for not having faith in God’s only Son.” (John 3: 13-18) You know the phrase “Dead man walking” could be applied here. A person walking earth without faith in Jesus does not have their name written in God’s Bookk of Life. You are literally a dead soul walking and condemned to spend an eternity where nonbelievers go at their last breath – hell – without being snatched from Satan’s hand where you are until God’s glory is placed willingly within you, changing your DNA to heirs and sons/daughters of God through Jesus Christ. In your daily life, choices made have large and small consequences. So it is with deciding to believe in cults and idols. Satan does not care which lie you embrace as long as it keeps you in his dark kingdom of this world.

“My people are determined to reject me for a god they think is stronger, but he can’t help.You have planted evil, harvested injustice, and eaten the fruit of your lies. You trusted your own strength and your powerful forces. Now you continue to sin by designing and making idols of silver…You are told to sacrifice to these idols– yes, even to kiss them. And so, all of you will vanish lie the mist or the dew of early morning, or husk of grain in the wind or smoke from a chimney.” (Hosea 10: 13, 11:7 and 13: 2-3)

God’s promise: “…give up your idols! I will answer your prayers and take care of you. I am that glorious tree, the source of your fruit. If you are wise, you will know and understand what i mean. I am the Lord, and I lead you along the right path. If you obey me, we will walk together, but if you are wicked, you will stumble.” (Hosea 14:8-9)
