Where did Religion come from?
Religion is the handiwork of the devil. Satanâ€™s plan from the beginning was to separate mankind from God. Satan, being the father of all lies, created the grand lie, â€œall roads lead to God.â€ This thought is the bedrock of ecumenical thinking and, although all religions reject it, it is the cornerstone upon which religion is built.
The devil loves religion! Do you know why? It is because religion is not only impotent but it also propagates powerlessness.
Religion is a cowardly system created by cowardly men. Rather than accept the hope of everlasting life in Christ Jesus and abundant life in the earth â€“ in spite of persecutions â€“ they have chosen to opt into systems that prepare them to leave the very realm which they are called to conquer in the name of the King of kings!
Why does Religion Exist?
Religion exists to control people. This is contrary to the dominion mandate in Genesis 1:26-28. God gave mankind dominion over all the things in the earth but not each other. More wars in history have been fought over religion than anything else. More people have been subjugated and enslaved in the name of religion than for any other reason.
Another reason religion exists is to justify what God will not or cannot do.
