……for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived……. Rev18:23
Leaders of the Corrupt religious system (apostateChristianity) indeed practice witchcraft (sorcery).
They are not honest with the people. (They lie.)
They utilize manipulation and deception to control the people.
The people are then bound under the deluding spell of that sweet but deadly potion.
Through witchcraft, Corrupt Christianity invites people to make a commitment to the kingdoms of the world.
He was straightforward and honest with the people. (“I tell you the truth.” He said.)
He did not practice manipulation or deception on them.
The people were free to accept His challenging claims and terms or not.
Through truth, Jesus invites people to make a commitment to His kingdom.
