And I can easily list 40 ways that Christianity is nothing but pure evil. “PEOPLE WILL BE LOVERS OF MONEY AND OF THEMSELVES.”
A self-righteous, merciless and ignorant people, as prophesied it would be, disobeying God’s commands, and professing to be blessed.

Are you referring to Christianity itself being evil or people who claim to be Christians?

All of Chritianity, a people who have chosen to worship lies, so to live guilt free in greed, following the elemental spiritual forces on Earth, rather than the teachings of Christ, and if you read Hosea 4, you see the exact point in time when God abolished and cursed priesthoods forever – one High Priest, one Teacher, that Christians simply ignore in their idolatrous existences. And caring for the poor, as lomg as Christians spend most of the money on themselves first, the poor get the cruns that are left over, because “Greed is Idolatry”, as it is written. So be blessed and not deceived.

And a final point, followers of Jesus were named “Christians” by “Man” in Antioch, and not by God or by Jesus. In Holy scriptures, true followers are called “Children of God” – anything else from humanity, is the work of the Devil. Hence John 5:41 – the Messiah makes it very clear that Glorifying Jesus in humanity, is unacceptable. The Glory is God’s alone, and another holy decree completely ignored by Christians .

I’m not sure what you are arguing against here. You claim that all of Christianity is evil, yet you quote Hosea 4 and mention there is one High Priest. Are you saying that people who claim to be Christians but don’t follow the teachings of Scripture in caring for the poor and following Christ are evil? Or, are you saying the foundational teachings of the Bible and Christianity are immoral?
What do you think is correct? Are you a child of God? Do you adhere to a certain religious view?

Why are you a Christian if you can list 40 ways that Christianity is nothing but pure evil?
