People say that religion does not save.
As such, many believe that we do not have to change religion in order to do the will of God. In other words, even though the religion practices what God condemns, many believe they can attend, praise, and worship God in the religion, within the churches of the religion because God knows the heart of each of us and forbids us to judge others.
According to that point of view, if our church condones idolatry, homosexuality, fornication, adultery, et cetera, those of us who get to understand that God condemns those behaviors, we may still praise and worship God with those who are actively engaged in sinning those sins . Understand, we are not talking about those of us who are struggling to break the chains of those sins but about those of us who mistakenly justify our sins as righteousness.
Since the beginning, it had always been a question about the certainty of what God intends it to mean. Eve fell not because she did not know the expressed command of God. She recited it verbatim. She fell because she preferred the interpretation presented to her by Satan.
If the message is 'Come out of her, My people', it means that there are God's people in the midst of any sinful church, denomination, or assembly that blends Judaism with the teachings of men (Mark 7:7), with paganism who must leave those sinful places of worship. 'My people" may not worship within other openly sinful congregations, as we read it in Revelation 18:4, no matter what kind of rhetoric we may base our belief upon. 'My people' within Babylon are so stubborn!
It tears my heart apart to confront the stubborn mind of a golden hearted child of God who is more pure than many of us, insisting that we do not talk to them about their religion because religion does not save or because of the plurality of Christian denominations! The call to them to come out of Babylon is so loud and clear:
Revelation 18:4 EMTV
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, my people, lest you participate in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
Babylon encompasses more than the obvious church that many of us know the verse targets. Babylon also includes Protestantism which practices a curated blend of Judaism, teachings of men, and other cultural customs, just as it is done in Babylon.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJ3
(14) Do not be unequally yoked with faithless ones. For what partnership does righteousness have with lawlessness? And what fellowship does light have with darkness? (15) And what agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what part does a believing one have with a faithless one? (16) And what agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are a temple of the living God, even as God said, “I will” dwell in them and “walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.” Lev. 26:12; Ezek. 37:27 (17) Because of this, “come out from among them” “and be separated,” says the Lord, “and do not touch the unclean thing,” and I will receive you. Isa. 52:11 (18) “And I will be a Father to you, and you will be sons” and daughters to Me, says the Lord Almighty. 2 Sam. 7:8, 14; Isa. 43:6
