Is it Okay to Donate Money to Help Build the Third Temple in Jerusalem?
Steve, why are you against Christians donating money to help build the Third Temple in Jerusalem? Our Judeo-Christian heritage makes it imperative that we stand together with the Jews. Christianity sprang from Judaism. Both religions believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Don’t you think we should stand up for the Jews, and back them to the hilt? What fundamental difference do you see between Judaism and Christianity that has you so lathered up that you won’t even donate to help build the temple? Thanks, Bruce
Thanks for your questions. I’m going to answer the last one first, and the first one last. Your other questions will be answered in the process.
So let’s start with your question about “What fundamental difference do I see between Judaism and Christianity?”
How about this one: Jesus Christ.
That’s the profound fundamental difference between the two. Christianity loves Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. Judaism rejects, hates, loathes and despises that same Holy Son.
The Scripture is very clear about the consequences of rejecting Jesus:
I John 2:23 — Whoesever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: but he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
You can’t have it both ways. If you deny the Son, as the Judaics who want to build that so-called “Third Temple” do, then you don’t have the Father. It’s as simple as that. Why would you want to yoke yourself together with those who have rejected the Son and thus have been abandoned by the Father?
Romans 8:9 — Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.
The phrase “none of his” in the Greek language contains a double negative, meaning it denotes absolute denial.
In other words, it’s impossible for anyone to have God the Father if they reject the Spirit of Christ, because it was God the Father who sent that Spirit to bring us back into His good graces.
So no matter how much the Christ-hating Judaics love to call themselves “God’s chosen,” they aren’t. God has nothing to do with them, ever since they rejected (and arranged for the murder of) His only begotten son, Jesus Christ, and have continued to reject and despise Him after He rose from that tomb.
So why am I, as a faithful Christian, against donating money to build the Third Temple in Jerusalem?
It’s because Jesus Christ has already built the Third Temple. And it’s in operation, to this very day. I’ll explain that thoroughly, in just a moment. But first…
What the Bible Says About It
Let’s take a quick look at the Bible, and let its wisdom answer your questions about donating money to the building of the so-called Third Temple:
2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
That’s not a request. It’s a direct order.
An “unbeliever” is one who adamantly rejects Jesus Christ as the Son of God. The word in the original Greek language is apistos (Strong’s G-571), which quite simply means “without Christian faith.”
Such unbelief is a fundamental tenet of Judaism. Indeed, they revel in their hatred of, and lack of faith in, Jesus Christ. They denigrate Him in their “holy book,” the Talmud, as a “bastard son of a Jewish whore who’s boiling in hot excrement in hell for his sins, for eternity.”
What greater “unrighteousness”…what greater “darkness”…can there be than to plot and carry out the murder of a perfectly innocent man, who perfectly fulfilled the very Law of God that the Christ-hating Judaics falsely claim to live under?
Why would we, as Christians, ignore the Bible, and have fellowship with anyone who revels in such unrighteousness as a fundamental tenet of their religion?
What does the Bible mean, then, when it says “Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers”? To be “yoked with” means to work together toward a common spiritual goal, like two animals yoked together to pull a plow through a field.
So how can Christ-lovers work together with Christ-haters toward a common spiritual goal?
They can’t. Yet isn’t that exactly what Christians are doing when they donate money to help “build the Third Temple” in Jerusalem? Are they not yoking themselves together with the haters of Christ, to achieve the common spiritual goal of erecting a so-called “Third Temple”?
Now think about this:
Any Christian pastor would agree that we should not be “unequally yoked” with practitioners of Islam. Or with practitioners of Buddhism. Or with practitioners of Hinduism. Or with practitioners of atheism, or any of the other “isms.” After all, each of these religions essentially deny Jesus Christ as the Savior of mankind.
But all-too-many Christians believe that the practitioners of Judaism, who openly and unapologetically despise our Lord and Savior, are some kind of special case. These same Christians believe they’re somehow exempt from this Biblical admonition to refrain from yoking oneself, spiritually, to the Judaic unbelievers, as long as they don’t yoke themselves to other kinds of unbelievers.
Apparently, in the myopic sight of these Christians, it’s perfectly okay to disobey God’s Word, and to yoke oneself to those who hate, loathe and despise, the Lord, and who have spitefully rejected and denied Him now for some 2,000 years.
Yet when St. Paul wrote the above verse, and the subsequent verses we’ll examine next, he was specifically targeting Christians who were gradually reverting back to Judaism! He was telling Christians to have nothing whatsoever to do with the Judaic haters of Christ Jesus.
For some reason, the practitioners of Judaism — who reject and despise Christ more than any other religious body on the face of the earth — must be embraced by Christians, even as they spit on the ground at the hearing of the name of Jesus Christ, burn copies of the New Testament in their Yeshivas (religious schools), and pass laws banning the teaching of Jesus Christ in their cities.
And the Judaics do all of this while simultaneously sending their religious emissaries to this country to raise funds from Christians to help “build the Third Temple,” while telling us, quite erroneously, that doing so is a necessary part of our supposed “Judeo-Christian heritage”!
Let’s continue in Second Corinthians for a moment:
2 Cor 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
What concord, or pact, can there be between Christ Jesus and those who “say they are Jews, but are not, and do lie, and are of the synagogue of Satan“? (Revelation 2:9/3:9)
Oops. Sorry. We’re apparently not supposed to bring up those Bible passages in good Christian company. We’re supposed to skip over that part of the Bible that tells us the synagogue “Jews” are working on behalf of Satan — this, even though the words came directly from the mouth of Jesus Christ.
I can hear the so‑called Christian pastors proclaiming: “What are you, anyway, some kind of vile anti‑semite?”
Well, no. I’m not an “anti-semite.” I just agree with my favorite semite, Jesus Christ, instead of with those who reject and despise Him. Why don’t you?
2 Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
What agreement should Christians — who constitute the very temple of the living God — have with those who reject the true Messiah of God, and who substitute their own “messiah” in His place?
The answer: “None.”
Yet for many years now, otherwise good Christians, by the tens of millions, have been bringing the practitioners of Judaism right into their churches to raise money for the building of the “Third Temple” in Jerusalem!
What part of “…YE are the Temple of the living God” don’t you understand? The “Third Temple” already exists. It is us. The many-membered body of Christ makes up that temple.
And if we Christians are indeed the Temple of the Living God, and God now dwells in us (i.e., in Christians), and walks in us (i.e., in Christians), then our God already has a home!
This begs the question no Christian pastor wants to ask today: If God now dwells in Christians, and therefore needs not a brick-and-mortar temple (Acts 17:24), then which “god” is it that the practitioners of Judaism are attempting to build a new “Third Temple” for?
The answer: They’re attempting to build it for the false messiah ‑‑ the “son of perdition,” that “man of sin” spoken of by St. Paul. You can read about it in II Thessalonians 2:1‑4, which reads like this:
“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
In short, the Judaics are attempting to build the so-called “Third Temple” for that one who the Scripture tells us “opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,” and who will indeed rule and reign from that Temple in Jerusalem, “seating himself in the Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” (II Thess. 2:4)
And the worst part is this:
It’s Christians who are unwittingly donating the money to build that false Temple, in which the false messiah ‑‑ the antichrist himself ‑‑ will seat himself.
It’s quite unbelievable. But it’s happening right before your eyes. Christians are actually helping the Christ-hating Judaics build the temple of the antichrist, erroneously thinking they’re helping preserve our “Judeo-Christian heritage” and “hastening Christ’s Second Coming.”
Listen, there’s not a single thing you can do to “hasten Christ’s Second Coming.” Nothing. God has a set time for that event (Matthew 24:36). And it’s the height of arrogance to believe one can force God to hasten His own plan for the end-of-days by helping the Judaics build their long-sought “Third Temple.”
All such a thing can do is estrange you from God, because you can’t be a faithful Christian and simultaneously yoke yourself spiritually to those who have no faith in Him, but instead, despise Him.
2 Cor 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2 Cor 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
If we want our heavenly Father to receive us into His eternal kingdom, as faithful family members, we’re to remain separate from those who vehemently reject and despise Jesus Christ.
There’s to be a solid boundary between us and them. Indeed, the word “separate” in verse 17 above, when translated correctly from the original Greek, means “to be set off by a boundary.” It also means “to exclude.” (See Strong’s G-873).
We, the many-membered body of Christ, are to be set off by a boundary from the Christ-haters. We’re to exclude ourselves from their ungodly activities. Therefore, we’re certainly not to help them raise money to build their “Third Temple.”
We’re also admonished, in verse 17 above, to “touch not the unclean thing.” There’s nothing more unclean, spiritually speaking, than rejecting the Son of God and His atoning blood sacrifice and concurrent mercy and grace, and trying to replace Him with another.
Again, as the Scripture clearly states, anyone who rejects Jesus Christ rejects the Father Himself, as well. As it’s written, “Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.” (I John 2:23)
So how can the Judaics claim to be “God’s chosen,” when their abject denial of the Lord for the past 2,000 years means they no longer even have God the Father?
Get your mind right with the Lord, through His Word.
Christ Jesus is now God’s chosen (Matthew 12:18). Not the Judaics who hate Him…who reject and despise Him… and who seek to build that so-called “Third Temple” to house their god, the antichrist, which is the substitute messiah.
So if you want God to be a Father unto you, and to accept you into His eternal family household, then you must understand and obey His Word, which means you must accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and serve Him faithfully.
Furthermore, you must obey the Scriptures and “come out from among them”… “be ye separate”…and “touch not the unclean thing.”
Our heavenly Father does not like hybrid religion. Pure and simple, hybrid religion is straight from the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of the tree of good and evil — the very family tree of Satan himself.
And let’s get one more thing very clear: There’s no “Judeo‑Christian” anything. You cannot mix light with darkness, and expect His blessings upon you. His Word is reality, and all other things are but idols and man-made illusions.
So are you a Christian? Or are you a “Judeo‑Christian”?
The first one is an eternal reality. The second one is a hybrid religion based upon the deception that mixing light with darkness — Satan’s very ploy in the Garden of Eden — can somehow bring about something pleasing to God.
Again, there’s no more profound difference between two faiths than that which is found between Judaism and Christianity. You cannot hyphenate them together into “Judeo-Christianity” and simultaneously be found pleasing to God.
Christians have been greatly deceived. And for the most part, we, as Christians, don’t even realize it. We think we’re doing right in hyphenating ourselves onto the Judaic religion. But in reality, in doing so, we’re estranging ourselves from God the Father, just as they’ve been estranged from God the Father for some 2,000 years.
We’re certainly not profiting God by serving those who reject, deny and despise His Savior.
Christ’s Warnings to Those Who Play Religion
Let’s take a quick look at Christ’s words in the book of Matthew, where He points out that many of the folks who call themselves “Christian” today will be utterly rejected by Him at His Second Advent:
Matt 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Hey, Lord, we even contributed money for the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem! All day long, our thoughts have been of you, and only you.
What’s that you say?
You say If we’d have bothered to study Your Word, we’d have known that we are the Temple of the living God?
And if we’d bothered to study Your Word, we’d have known that You dwell is us now, and have no need of some physical building, particularly one that’s being planned by the very people who murdered your only begotten Son, and who continue to curse and blaspheme His holy name to this very day?
Oops. I forgot, again. We’re not supposed to point out things like that. It might be considered “anti-semitic.”
Matt 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
These Christians never bothered to commune with God through His Word. They never bothered to study it, line‑by‑line and verse‑by‑verse, to know what it actually says.
Instead, they listened to one‑verse-Charleys who, from the very pulpits of Christian churches, taught them to embrace the traditions of man and hyphenate themselves onto the singular religion that, as its central tenet, hates Jesus Christ the most.
When Jesus Christ arrives at His Second Advent, He’ll reject as unprofitable servants any Christians He finds doing such a thing. But those who listen to the Lord’s Word and obey it, will be blessed, indeed.
Matt 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
That “house” in this verse is the true temple of God, which is the many-membered body of Christ. That “rock” spoken of, above, is Jesus Christ, the Living Word of God. You are to build your spiritual house upon that rock, and not upon that physical rock in Jerusalem.
If the Judaics want to build a “Third Temple” upon that Jerusalem mount, let them fund it themselves, and suffer the consequences thereof.
We have a different Rock upon which to build our spiritual house. A spiritual Rock called Christ Jesus. A permanent and eternal Rock that cannot be shaken.
Matt 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Again, that Rock is Christ. Build your spiritual house upon Him, not upon the works of His very enemies.
Matt 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
Go ahead. Hyphenate yourself onto the religion of those who reject and despise Jesus. Help them build their “Third Temple.”
But know for a fact, in advance, that it’s a house built upon sand rather than upon the solid and eternal foundation of Jesus Christ. As it’s written, “For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (I Corinthians 3:11)
In supporting the efforts of the Christ-haters to build their so-called “Third Temple,” you must first reject what the Word of God clearly says on this matter. And that makes you an unfit dwelling place for God.
You not only lose God’s in-dwelling presence, but you end up becoming a member, spiritually speaking, of that physical temple that will be controlled by those who despise your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You’re in essence counted by God as one of those who despise and reject His Son — Who is the true Third Temple.
Indeed, in supporting the efforts of the Christ-haters to build their temple, God will turn you over to the spirit of antichrist that empowers those who hate Him. As it’s written, “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy.”
Don’t defile Christ and His many-membered body by touching the unclean thing, for Christ and His many-membered body are the temple of God, and you’re part and parcel of it, if you truly love and faithfully obey Him. Your love and faithful obedience makes you a “brick” in the temple wall.
As St. Peter wrote in I Peter 2:5, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”
Now think about that. What’s truly acceptable to God is that “spiritual house” and that “holy priesthood” (which are the living stones that make up the walls of that house) that “offer up spiritual sacrifices” to God, through Jesus Christ, the once-and-for-all-times sacrifice of God (Hebrews 10:10).
But the Judaics want to build their Third Temple so they can go back to slaughtering animals and sacrificing them at the temple — an utter blasphemy against Christ and His once-and-for-all-times sacrifice on that cross at Calvary. And you want to be part of that? Really?
You see, the sacrifices God Almighty delights in, from us, through Jesus Christ, are spiritual sacrifices — that’s to say, the sacrifices of our love…of our obedience to His Word…and of our faithful service to Him.
As it’s written:
“For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.” (Hebrews 10:5-7)
God’s true and final temple is the many-membered body of Jesus Christ, who was the final sacrifice. That many-membered body was prepared for Christ by God the Father, Himself. We dwell in Christ, spiritually, and He dwells in us, through God’s Holy Spirit, and guides us as we work in faith to carry out His will on this earth.
That spiritual many-membered body of Christ replaced the physical temple at which animals were slaughtered and sacrificed for the sins of the people. It’s the true Third Temple.
But if you start sending money to the Judaics to build their so-called “Third Temple,” you’re reversing course. You’re walking away from the true temple, Jesus Christ and His many-membered body — and helping build the false temple for the substitute Christ that’s soon-to-come to this earth — the antichrist.
Matt 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Yes, “GREAT was the FALL of it.” For it was not the house of God. It was the house of those who reject God and His chosen Messiah.
You cannot reject the Son of God, and still be counted by God as an integral part of His eternal family household. There are no exemptions from this rule, nor exceptions to it.
The verse above is speaking of Christ’s Second Advent. Contrary to popular Christian belief, the destruction of the temple and its buildings on that Mount has not yet been fully accomplished. The so-called “Wailing Wall” still stands, for example.
But at Christ’s Second Advent, every building on that Temple Mount will be utterly demolished, and every stone turned to sand. As it’s written:
“And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (Matthew 24:1-2)
In the original Greek language, the phrase “thrown down” in the above verse is translated from the Greek word kataluo (Strong’s G-2647), which quite literally means “to disintigrate.”
It essentially means the stones that make up that physical temple the Judaics are chomping at the bits to build on the Temple Mount will ultimately be turned to sand. And Christ Himself is going to do it.
The Romans never accomplished such a thing when they sacked and razed Jerusalem in 70 A.D. But it will indeed happen when our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ comes to cleanse that entire Temple Mount of the stench of the antichrist who will have, at that time, set up shop there and declared himself to be “God.”
As it’s written in II Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
The bottom line is this:
If you’re firmly founded upon the Rock known as the Word of God (Jesus Christ IS the Living Word), you’re part and parcel of the family household of God. When you intake His Word, through Bible study followed by sincere contemplation, He begins to dwell in you. “Ye are the Temple of the Living God.” He needs no other dwelling place ‑‑ no other “Temple.”
So why in the world are you wanting to join hand-in-hand with those who hate Him the most to build a Third Temple on their behalves?
Is it because you don’t understand the simple fact that the so-called “Third Temple” has already been built, and that Christ Himself built it out of you and the rest of His many-membered elect body whom the Father has assembled through His Holy Spirit of truth?
Again, as it’s written:
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (I Corinthians 3:16-17)
So if the many-membered body of Christ is now the Temple of God, how can you possibly defile that Temple?
Easy. You defile that Temple when you, as a Christian, yoke yourself to, and do the bidding of, those who hate, loathe and despise the Lord. You donate money to help them build a temple for the antichrist — the false Christ — which is their god. That’s what defiles the temple of God. It’s called touching the unclean thing.
Always remember His commands: “Come ye out from among them.” “Be ye separate.” “Touch not the unclean thing.” (II Cor. 6:17).
It’s not that hard to understand. In fact, it’s very simple. We’re not to yoke ourselves to those who reject and despise Jesus Christ. Their actions make them unclean. So we’re to remain separate from them. We’re to come out from among them. We’re not to “touch” (i.e., “attach oneself to” — Strong’s G-680) them. We’re not to aid them in their ungodly endeavors.
Matt 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
Matt 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
No “inter‑faith” religion here. No “ifs,” “ands” or “buts.” You’re either with Jesus Christ, in truth and in spirit, or you’re against Him. There’s no middle ground.
You cannot be with Christ, and simultaneously knowingly support or have spiritual concord with those who despise, deny and reject Christ.
With God, it’s either one way, or the other. But not a hybrid of both, which, again, is the equivalent of the mixing of good and evil that comes straight from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which is Satan’s family tree.
The Judaic scribes had perverted God’s law into a ritualistic religion based upon traditions and fantasies which “make void the Word of God.”
As Christ would admonish the leaders of Judaism in the Gospel of Mark, “Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.” (Mark 7:13)
We, as Christians, can therefore either embrace His Word, as it’s written, and do exactly as He says, faithfully and to the best of our abilities. Or, we can do as man says through their empty religious traditions and hyphenate ourselves onto the enemies of Christ, and help support the building of a physical “Third Temple” in Jerusalem.
The first of those two choices makes us the very dwelling place of the Living God. The second of those choices makes God’s Word of “none effect” in us. But the choice is up to each and every one of us.
To understand further, consider reading the following short Bible studies:
The bottom line is that, for three simple reasons, I’m against Christians donating money to help build the so-called “Third Temple” in Jerusalem:
1. The “Third Temple” has already been built. God built it, through Christ Jesus. Indeed, Christ and His many-membered is the Temple of God (II Corinthians 6:16). He needs no brick-and-mortar building as He already has a dwelling place, in us. To donate money toward the building of a physical, brick-and-mortar “Third Temple is to reject God’s Word on this subject, and to revert to the religion of the Judaics — the very enemies of our Lord and Savior.
2. That Third Temple is being built to house the false messiah, aka the antichrist — the very enemy of God (Mark 13:14). To donate to its building is the equivalent of turning our backs on Christ and touching the unclean thing. It’s the precursor to taking the mark of the beast.
3. Donating money toward the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem is also the equivalent of yoking yourself, spiritually, to the singular religion on the face of the earth which, as its central tenet, rejects, denies, despises and constantly blasphemes the Holy Name of Jesus Christ.
Why on God’s green earth would you want to help the Judaics build a church from which to further blaspheme the Lord? It’s because you’ve been duped into doing so. Repent, in Jesus name. Tell Him you’re sorry. If you’re sincere, Father will forgive you. He’ll say to you, “Go, and sin no more.”
Stick with the true Temple of God. It’s quite sufficient. After all, it’s composed of Jesus Christ and His many-membered elect body. Ultimately, it’s the eternal temple of God. As it’s written of the eternity:
Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
Yes, and if you dwell in Him, you’re part and parcel of that true temple. As it’s further written:
Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Rev 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Can you hear what the Spirit says unto the churches? It says you have to overcome the deception. Not participate in it.
It says “New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God,” not earthly Jerusalem which is run by the Christ-haters, and will be run by them until He returns and cleanses the entire area with His great power.
That’s what’s meant by “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (II Corinthians 6:17-18).
If you want to be an integral part of God’s eternal temple — which is His eternal family household — you can’t be found helping the enemies of God build theirs. Period.
