1 Corinthians 11:12-15
12 But I will keep on doing what I am doing, in order to undercut those who want an opportunity to be regarded as our equals in the things of which they boast. 13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading
as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as
an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade
as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.

Not surprisingly since George Orwell's times, the NWO invades our privacy and our emails, and storms our bedrooms. And no wonder, because he who
controls sexuality of the nation, controls the nation.
Is then God for sin, if He rejects to restrain people in fascist or collectivist
control over the sexuality of the people?
No. God hates sin. But fascist control never produced the fruits of the Spirit: in fascist societies, they happened despite the regime, not because of the regime.
Moreover, fascist regimes always pretended to rule in the name of the God Almighty Creator, with divine right to rule - though they mostly came to
the power using schemes, not divine anointing or election like king David
or even Saul in the Old Israel. They would let the churches and ministries perform their rituals, but the ultimate worship and obedience was reserved
for the State and its Leader. They would not refrain from teaching in school that he is their god (or The God?).
The religion that was beside them is very unlike the Acts of the apostles,
and deliberately destroys every awakening or fruit of the spirit, like salvation in Christ, with the signs and manifestations (miracles) like those
in the Holy Scriptures.
Mostly, because they are dangerous for the hierarchy. While the mainstream church had found a way to incorporate some movements of the Spirit,
creating holy orders and proclaiming their leaders saints, it viciously persecuted the others through the inquisition that was only partly concerned with witchcraft, but predominantly with the "heresies" dangerous for the hierarchies. (The Holy Spirit insight is also considered dangerous for
it reveals that priests have more sins than they confess.)
More than just as a danger, the religion persecuted even very humble
and contrite disciples and movements of Christ that never aspired to power,
all to show its true nature inspired by the god of this world. Christ cannot persecute Christ.
In all this democratic governments and enlightened absolutist rulers chose
not to interfere with the people's choice of faith, establishing the freedom of religion.
Even God wants this: He allows false religion. Why? Free will and our
critical thinking are essential for the Creator. The lack of discernment
and gullible obedience have once cost Him mankind in Paradise.
Apostle John is even more decisive, calling the false religion "the Harlot
of Babylon" in Revelation. The Harlot rides on the Beast - the symbol of
the false religion using politics to spread its influence, rather than preaching the Word of God.
In this, the spirit of religion will allow certain classes of people to maintain
the "outward appearance of rigtheousness", while they will deny the Holy
Spirit with their behaviour (though no disciple is without sin, as of Romans 3:23) and the Spirit's power in Christ, uproot every salvation that isn't approved
by the mainstream religious leaders, using the same kind of people that
were used by the religious leaders in Jesus' time - the Pharisees:
they spied on the disciples, persecuted them and used politicians like
Herod and Pilates to get the authority to execute lethal punishment.
God has traditionally chosen to let people sin rather than keeping them
in bondage, and saved the elect through the power of the sacrifice on
2 Timothy 3
1 But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, eckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having
a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!
Here apostle Paul speaks about the people in the church, who had the
chance to taste the Holy Spirit but have rather chosen pleasures, and
maintain the civil appearance before society even when they might
secretly be embezzlers, adulterers, and pedophiles or others from Paul's
list, or attend secret satanic rituals and black masses.
In the end, the Beast will hate the Harlot and "eat its flesh" (riches).
This is a prophecy which we see fulfilled in many totalitarian and communist regimes.
This didn't mean that the Beast (ungodly powers relying on sheer force rather than justice and righteousness) will eradicate false worship, but attempt
to eradicate all worship of the Almighty God Creator, for it "want all
worship for itself".
In this it historically always starts by persecution of the "heresies" and
the movements of the Spirit, and "all who uphold the testimony of God".
Why then the Pharisees of Jesus' time weren't persecuted? The previous generation did, but they were replaced and infiltrated by Romans and
their puppet regime in the form of Herod tetrarch. Note that he called
himself a "quadruple authority and honour ruler", though he was only
a marionette of Romans and held no real power.
We see that various dictators emphasised to role of the State and
its authority. While the worship of the State is dangerous idolatry by itself, the Beast will use its power to establish self-worship and authority
over life and death, covertly or openly, through racial laws or the like.
When will these things come to pass?
Apostle Paul prophecised:
2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being
gathered together to Him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to be easily disconcerted or alarmed by any spirit or message or letter seeming to be from us,
alleging that the Day of the Lord has already come. 3 Let no one deceive you
in any way, for it will not come until the rebellion (great apostasy)
occurs and the man of lawlessness—the son of destruction—is revealed.
4 He will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship. So he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself
to be God.
In the meantime, religion will continue to appear as the only way to God
while preventing it and quenching and stealing every move of the Holy Spirit while offering empty "sacraments", form of worship for birth, wedding and burial without demanding faith. It will be against each and every minister
of God, and the Enemy will raise many false Christs and many
antichrist, and many beasts, until the end.
Religions invariably offered the comfort and assurance required for people
to march into death in defence or for hegemony of an unjust regime.
The prophet says that "all Blood or the martyrs was found in Babylon".

What is then with Romans 13:1 in which apostle Paul says "let every soul
be subject to the higher powers"?
This obviously doesn't mean that one is to follow a racial law and stone
Jews or the African Americans if that is mandated by the State.
In this context, the "authorities" in the times of Paul were still the Roman empire with its foreign gods, so by no means this is to lead into the following the spiritual leadership of the State or Empire.
The "soul", additionally, or Hebrew "nephesh", in Paul's language meant more
"a living soul" or "a living human being". Unquestionably Paul did not encourage
the worship of Roman gods, but paying taxes and obeying the civil law.
The Roman authorities (except from persecution of Nero) as a rule declined to officially interfere with the religious matters, of which the book of Acts has the
example of proconsul Gallio, who declined condemnations against Paul:
14 But just as Paul was about to speak, Gallio told the Jews, “If this matter involved a wrongdoing or vicious crime, O Jews, it would be reasonable for
me to hear your complaint. 15 But since it is a dispute about words and names and your own law, settle it yourselves. I refuse to be a judge of such things.”
16 And he drove them away from the judgment seat.
Additionally, apostle Paul said that "There is no power of authority except from
God", both wanting to prevent his disciples to participate in an armed rebellion,
as understanding that everything happens with the permission from God.
