    According to the Bible (KJV) there is a religion which is endorsed by the Creator.
    James 1:27 says:
    Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, [and] to keep himself unspotted from the world.

    There is power in the blood of Jesus

    The following is my opinion. I do not know the mind of
    God, any more than any one else here. I welcome and
    cherish the opportunity for discussion.

    In my opinion, "religion" is an abomination to the Lord.

    True Christianity is a relationship with God.

    Religion is represented perfectly in the Bible by the
    Pharisees. The idea that it's all about conforming to
    "laws" above faith and relationship.

    Jesus was at direct odds with "religion" which in the Bible
    was a direct method or system of control.

    In fact, it was "religion" that bore the ultimate responsibility
    for the crucifixion of the Christ.

    Through the ages "Christianity" has been perverted and twisted
    until it is unrecognizable, just as Jesus was beaten until He was
    unrecognizable. Isaiah 52:14

    Even today, whenever the mainstream media does a story about
    "Christianity" they almost always show some footage they have
    of the pope! Like that's Christianity.

    A group that prays to the Virgin Mary (forbidden in the scriptures)
    as well as calling any man "father" other than your Father in heaven.

    They prop a "man" up as the High Priest, which is the role of Jesus
    to Christians. Jesus is our High Priest, it is through His petition alone
    that we enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

    But if they didn't do that, they couldn't tie Christianity to the crusades,
    or any other abomination they ascribe to Christianity.

    It wasn't until the Reformation that people were exposed to the truth
    of what Christianity is.

    I believe the Evil One, the God of this world, is behind every jot and tittle
    ever written toward the bondage of man from the begging till now.

    2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
    lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

    The Dark One has one purpose, to sit on the mountain of God and be worshiped as God.

    In the Bible, God's Holy Mountain I believe shows or represents a system of government.
    Horns represent kingship. Kings preside over systems of government.

    The same is represented from Daniel to Revelation. I believe people looking for the
    False Prophet and the Antichrist should look toward "empires, or systems of government"
    rather than men.

    What is the current organized structure of religion other than a system of government?

    The creator, God, supreme being does not exist in the dead letters of a book, but is written in the heart of men. Put know man between you and your concept of God, by what ever name you call I am. If you would find the truth, put aside all preconceived Ideas and just simply ask. What father when his son asks for bread gives him a stone.
