Quotes (835)

The devil is not fighting religion. He is too smart for that. He is producing a counterfeit Christianity so much like the real one that good Christians are afraid to speak out against it.

– Vance Havner

  1. Amen. Satan is VERY much behind religion (spiritual belief systems), and heavily supports it. Any religion EXCEPT the one true religion: faith in the Christ of the Bible and living in obedience to the Word. And what better way to lead astray than to present a counterfeit that looks, sounds, and feels so much like the true, even using profuse Scriptural “support”, that sometimes you can’t tell the difference, except by the God-given gift of discernment.

    Important statement here: “…good Christians are afraid to speak out against it.” That’s part of Satan’s trick too: silence any exposure of his deceit. “I might sound like a Pharisee”. “I know what I believe, but I’m not smart enough to defend it successfully, so I’ll just keep quiet”. “If I speak out, they’ll talk circles around me, and I’ll look like a fool”. “If I speak out against the counterfeit, people might take it wrong and think I’m speaking against the truth”. “It’s just too much of a hassle to get into”, etc.
