Is it the Christian thing to do?
As a religious investigative writer and an atheist with a deep interest in all forms of religions and someone that questions religions but knows faith is important to many people that need a staff to lean on. That people are frightening that death is the complete end of existence. I see an argument between two religious cults in the Philippines where each are slurring the other cult’s leadership.
Looking at the leadership of two evangelic cults one can see the religion is all about making money using religion as the bait. These cults have became rich the market place is the Filipino Catholic society, attracting disenchanted Christians away from the Catholic Church (of which is one of the world biggest and oldest establish religious business).
It’s all about money and controls in fact its all about evil intent shrouded by a cloak of Christian morality and charity bait. The leaders of such cults very often show their real color’s and get caught with their fingers in the cookie jars. Or end up being slurred by sexual deviances some true and some falsely claimed by the cults enemies.
The problem in the Philippines that two of these cults is using their followers to slur each others leaders and establishments. One of the cults has embroiled it self in Filipino politics, the other is also trying to establish it self politically.
What these cults are doing to my mind is not good for Christianity it’s really a power struggle in a vendetta that’s been going on for years. What is worrying is that the followers mostly good honest Christians are funding this squabble and the lifestyles of the crooks running these cults. The cult’s indoctrination that is deviant to normal Christianity has blinded the followers to the reality that they have been conned. The propaganda issued from the pulpit is not what I would call in line with Christian morality. The attacks on each other are also not something the great Philosopher Jesus Christ would have condoned.
It sickens me to see the accusation being aired on internet news communities and blog’s and I keep asking myself are these people really Christians and can’t they see that such vendetta’s are evil. Jesus taught that people should love and respect each other, these guys seem to be blind to the Philosophers teaching and following the devils path. They are not practicing true Christianity.
My advice to christians that follow such cults:
Cut out the middleman and pray direct as the middle man wants your money. Plus read the first two chapters of the New Testament's and get enlightenment and learn to become a real Christian and not a fundamentalist.
