Eccles 8:11; Psa 76:10a; 2Cor 13:8; Psa 111:2,7; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 28
Eccles 8:11; Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, therefore the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do evil.
Psa 76:10a; For the wrath of man shall praise you.
2Cor 13:8; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Psa 111:2,7; Great are the works of the Lord; They are studied by all who delight in them. (7) The works of His hands are truth and justice; All His precepts are sure.
We are engaged in a study of satan's cosmic system, a system of arrogant demonic thinking that is comprised of lies and deceit from demonic viewpoint that since the fall in the Garden of Eden, separated from God in the darkness of spiritual death has become the viewpoint and basis for all conflict in the human race.
At this point in our study we are looking at satan's cosmic 2 system where irrationality, disillusionment and discontent from cosmic 1 arrogance metastasizes into hatred, hostility, antagonism and opposition to God, God's people, God's policy and God's plan. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we stopped as we began to note religion as next category of cosmic 2 activity. Christianity and religion are antithetical. In Christianity, God saves mankind through personal faith in Jesus Christ. In religion, man seeks to impress God with his human good works.
Religion can be classified as the devil's ace trump because religion has been invented by Satan to counterfeit God's plan, purpose, and will for your life, and to divert you from the execution of the protocol plan of God for the Church Age. Religion is a part of the devil's strategy as masquerading as and angel of light (2Cor 11:14;) and as being "like the Most High God," (Isa 14:14;).
Christianity is not a religion but an eternal relationship with God through personal faith in Jesus Christ. In religion, people seek the approval and acceptance of God through good deeds, human merit, and various categories of "good" works.
Religion reflects the evil genius of satan. Christianity represents the perfect integrity of God combined with His grace policy.
To effectively carry out his deceit, lies and propaganda, satan has devised a system of religious counterfeits that oppose the truth of Christianity.
Satan has a counterfeit system for the following: The Gospel, 2Cor 4:3-4; Gal 6:1-8; Ministers, 2Cor 11:13-15; Communion table, 1Cor 10:19-21; Doctrine, 2Tim 4:1-2; Spirituality, Gal 3:1-3; System of righteousness, Matt 19:16-28; gods, 2Thes 2:3-4; power, 2Thes 2:8-10; "spiritual life", Matt 23:13-36;
