Deception in the Church – Ancient Pagan Origins

There is presently an increasing amount of deception creeping into the church. Many may see these deceptions as isolated and non-related; however, in this article we wish to attempt to show the readers that rather than being unrelated, a huge number of these deceptions have had many centuries to grow from ancient pagan and occult roots into the large spreading tree of spiritual beguilement’s that is seen today.

In a sense, it is frequently presented that Roman Catholicism and Freemasonry are opposing forces. Yet, when investigated further, we discover that at the highest level they are in fact part of the same tree, rather than being in opposition to one another. Unfortunately, much of protestant Christianity has been grafted into that tree. In addition, numerous cults are branches that share in the same common roots.

Who would not agree that there is, and has been, a symbol on earth for everything?  

From the beginning of human origin, before an alphabet or numbers, people from all cultures relied on the use of symbols for information and messages – symbols that designated nations, family groups, heraldry, kingdoms, religions, wealth and status, and even warnings.  


About Tony Koretz

A dedicated musician and audio engineer with a passion for all things related to sound and music, with a desire to see these things used for the Kingdom Of God. I have given years to this pursuit and to improving my skills in these areas. Having worked as a tech in the audio side of television, music, voice over, sound effects, sound for video, and all manner of other audio recording, mixing and mastering projects; I began to apply my knowledge of these to the creating of the A Minute To Midnite show in 2015. All the music used in every AMTM Show has been written, played and recorded by me. I love being able to combine my gifts as a composer, musician and sound engineer, with the desire to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, along with a message of warning people to prepare for the End Time Events that are unfolding before us. The A Minute To Midnite show and running the website has pretty much become my full time occupation now.
