Clearly the Bible warns that false religion is bad for the soul (eternally) but now it is evident that false religion is bad for the body, as well.
But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God…that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Cursed shall you be… (Deuteronomy 28:15-16)
The Midwest pipe bomber, Luke J. Helder, revealed his corrupt theology in the notes left with his bombs. He wrote, “If you are under the impression that death exists, and you fear it, you would do anything to avoid it…There is no such thing as death.”1 The Bible says he is wrong.
And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment (Hebrews 9:27)
Death is no joke, and all who die without Christ, will face judgment. The deluded bomber went on to say, “The people I’ve dismissed from this reality are not really dead.”2 In contrast, God said that those deny the reality of His Truth will suffer.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all…unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth…because what may be known of God is manifest in them… (Romans 1:18-19)
Helder’s idea that “death is an illusion is New Age religious dogma, which the terrorist is simply taking to its logical conclusion: Murder is OK.”3 However, God said, do not murder. (Exodus 20:13) This is one example of how false religion is hazardous to your health—it allows followers to kill you! Similarly, the religion of humanism justifies abortion and euthanasia.4 Any ideology that can rationalize away another person’s value is a dangerous false religion. Don’t let false faiths continue to jeopardize lives. Speak up for the weak and tell someone about Jesus today!
