“Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.”
There are only two religions in the world—the true and the false. That’s all. We like to divide religions up and say there’s Confucianism, Buddhism, Islam, and all these other different kinds of religions. And then we take Christianity and subdivide it. We say there’s Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Catholic, and so forth. But there are only two religions: the true and the false. One is the way of Cain and the other is the way of the cross. What is the way of Cain? The way of Cain is religion without the blood sacrifice and without the atonement. You may say, “Pastor, we don’t have to worry about that. We hear about the blood very often.” If so, thank God for a church that’s based on the Book, the blood, and the blessed hope.
