What do we learn about the abomination of false worship to God from Revelation 18? How is false worship compared to Babylon's Mystery Religions? How is the justice and righteousness of God manifest in the destruction of sinners who are given to false worship?
Powerful Sermon! Brother Ken does an excellent job analyzing and explaining Revelation 18. Each of us has a job of discerning what is Truth in any religious message we hear. With so many false religions deceiving the listeners, we must read/study the Holy Bible regularly to stay strong in Christ Jesus. I'm fortunate enough to have 3-4 hrs. daily to read the Scripture and receive many blessings from it.
Thank you Jesus for dying for my soul.

Great Sermon! Pastor Ken, we thank you for preaching the true serious message of Revelation 18.
Its quite frightening when we know we were there once, but God brought us out to be totally separated. What a mercy!
We may be few in number of Christ's sheep, but by His grace, we are taught of the Lord and led to come out from among them and be separate. Its a lonely path but a privileged one, whereby we only desire to glorify the Lord.
Important Sermon! This message justly calls attention to modern false Christianity, even among Protestants, Baptists and even "reformed" churches which are marked by "free will worship", or will-worship. Note the mark of Babylon is sensual worship, including musical instruments, along with much merchandising of religion and works by which they think they glorify God, even when "conservative". Martin Luther wrote on Galations: "All religion whereby God is worshiped without his word and commandment is idolatry. And the more spiritual it seems to be in outward show, the more dangerous and pernicious it is". Presently there is reformed idolatry as bad as Rome's, which God hates and will certainly judge.
