Section 8: Salvation

Salvation means to be saved, and is often the main objective of many religions. Salvation for a religion is like the ultimate prize or reward for being in and following that religion. What salvation saves you from however, depends on the ideology that the religion has adopted. This can vary, but often, it means to be saved from such things as depression or eternal death. Sometimes, salvation can simply mean any sort of religious goal, whether it's to be enlightened or to be one with God. But while this is all true, the most common thought of salvation is the mainstream Christian notion of salvation, which is the saving of souls from being sent to Hell.

Anyone who wishes to understand Christianity should know about this religion's doctrine on salvation. In Christianity, salvation is the saving of souls from damnation, the eternal torture of individuals in a place called Hell. The traditional view of Hell is a pit with a lake of fire in it where individuals are burned forever...supposedly. Of course, some branches within Christianity believe differently. Some branches believe that Hell is actually not a physical place, but a state of mind being without God. But for most of those who believe it's a real place, once you are there, you can never get out. No amount of asking for forgiveness from God will save you. But if you are saved from Hell, or in other words, if you achieved salvation, you instead go to Heaven, a place in the sky where you will have the privilege of praising God forever...supposedly. Again, there's variation within.

So what is the purpose of Hell? Why do persons go there? We will attempt to explain that here by going over and analyzing the whole story behind salvation. But we're warning you, it's not a pretty concept. Christianity, especially in the realm of ethics, hardly makes any sense, and the story of salvation shows what an evil person the Christian god can be. Now, so many Christians you will hear cry out how Jesus died for their sins, and yet, most of these Christians don't even know what that means. You might be surprised at how many Christians say this and yet don't know the whole story or the meaning behind Jesus' death. Of those that have a basic understanding, most are under the impression that the story of salvation and God sending his son to die for us is some noble and romantic love story from God, and they are actually convinced that it shows what a great and good guy he his. But we're not fooled. We know the truth. So, here is the story behind Hell and salvation. And in it; we have identified and explained sixteen scenarios that make God evil on this one concept alone. See for yourself.

Supposedly, God is perfect...he is perfect in every way including morality-wise. He is the most perfect loving and moral being there is. Well, that's what Christianity teaches anyway. He can do no wrong, and everything he does is for a perfect reason. Yet, when he created humans, he made them imperfect. Because he knew that they were not perfect, he gave them certain commands and laws that they were to live by. Any action that goes against God's will or laws is called a sin.

Now sin is usually thought of as a bad thing, and that's the idea...that a sin is some sort of wrong-doing, like murder for instance. But if the Bible is true, then God is a very poor judge of morality, and his rules and guidelines are more often than not, immoral. As an example, you would think that murder would indeed be a sin, yet God commands his people to murder many different persons and peoples. He commands that misbehaving children be put to death for example. An example of what God actually considers to be wrong and therefore sinful would be for a woman to speak in church. Occasionally, God does have a good law, such as not to lie, but for the most part, God can only be described as evil, and his laws and commands immoral. So that's the first thing wrong about God's ethical nature.

Here's a second thing; All sins are just as bad. In God's eyes, no sin is better or worse than another. To God, they are all the same. This is a clear violation of basic morality, but this is the way God sees it. It doesn't matter if you do something as small as lying, or as big as murder. Both sins are equally bad. Because of this, persons who try to be good are brought down to the same level as those who do evil. Because of this, either God is imperfect or he is just pure evil.

Now, when someone does something wrong, they often deserve punishment. This makes sense, but God's views on punishment are very extreme and further shows how unloving he can be. Because a sin is a wrong-doing in God's eyes, sin deserves punishment, and the third thing wrong with God's views on ethics is that sin always deserves pubnishment. It does not matter what sin it is, or who commits it. Every sin must be paid for. There are no exceptions. Despite what many Christians teach, it is clear from the Bible that God is either unwilling to be forgiving and merciful, or that he does not have the ability to be at all. So again, he is either imperfect or unloving. Everytime a sin is committed, someone needs to pay for it and be punished.

So if every sin is the same, and if every sin deserves punishment, then it would make sense for every one of them to bring about the same exact punishment...and it does. And what is this great punishment? It's God's number four reason why he is evil. Every sin, no matter what it is, whether it is lying or murder, both deserve the same exact punishment, and that punishment is often be killed by God himself, and then to be tortured in a pit with a lake of fire, called Hell...for an eternity. This is the punishment for every single sin. When someone commits a sin, no matter what it is, this is what they deserve; the most extreme and worst punishment imaginable. It is amazing, but the littlest of wrong-doings such as telling a fib will earn you a ticket to a place where you will be cooked alive forever. In any case, while punishing persons for their wrong-doings is fine, they do no good if they are not the right kinds of punishments. Punishments need to be appropriate for the sin, and when it comes to God, they never are.

But it's not just about the extreme content of the punishment. We wish to place special emphasis on the fact that this most extreme and horrible punishment lasts forever. This is an important part of the punishment to mention because even though the punishment is harsh, the time you spend receiving it is a big factor in how extreme the punishment actually is. Now, being tortured as punishment is one thing, but being tortured for an eternity is God's fifth reason why he is evil. It is completely unjust to apply an infinite punishment for a finite crime. In other words, no one, no one at one who lives now, no one who has lived in the past, and no one who will live in the future will ever deserve eternal Hell. There is not a single person who deserves Hell. You can think of the worst criminal, the most horrific monsters who have committed the most horrific crimes, and they are all far from deserving hell. Ironically, the person most deserving of Hell is God himself, but even he does not deserve eternal torture.


Now notice that for punishment, we said someone has to pay. For God, it doesn't matter who pays for the sin, just as long as someone's punished for it. This is the sixth thing wrong about God's ethics...that he would actually allow someone else to take the punishment instead so that the person who did the sin is not the one paying forwhat the sinner did wrong. By doing this; the sinner, who has done something wrong according to God, is allowed to go unpunished, and thus true justice is not carried out. This way; a person who is really guilty of a truly bad deed does not learn from their mistakes, and someone else takes extra punishment which is not deserved. But it's not just that. It gets better. God allows someone who commits a sin to force someone to take the punishment instead; somebody who is completely innocent of such a sin. That's right. This all loving and perfect God actually allows for a sinner to force an innocent person to pay for the other persons's sins. So this isn't just a case where a sinner can ask someone else to take their place; God allows sinners to force their punishments on others. So that's number seven. It would be reasonable to believe that a god who hates sin so much and wants to punish sinners with the most extreme type of punishment would value those who are innocent and not allow such evil incidents to occur, yet that is strangely not the case.

And how is this done? In the Old Testament days, a sinner would kill an innocent person and sacrifice it to God. Doing so would place the sins onto the person who was innocent, thus transferring the sins to this person and forcing them to take the punishment instead. This is number eight; the sacrifice; the concept that an innocent person was allowed to be forcibly killed in order to free the real sinner from the burden of punishment and to take it instead. Sacrifices of this kind were performed on non-human animals, and you can't get any more innocent than that. Unfortuantely; God himself required that such sacrifices be done with animals; making him even more evil. Amazingly; even though he hates sin and feels that he must punish those who are guilty, he has absolutely no problem with harming those who have no guilt in them at all.

But this was only a temporary fix. The fact is, God feels that all humans are evil in nature, and ever since the original sin by Adam and Eve, all humans since were born as sinners...not because they committed any sin yet, but they were sinners because of their parents' sins. This means that being brought into the world made you a sinner, and you are guilty just for being born. Imagine that; deserving eternal torture in Hell just for being born. That's the number nine reason why God is evil. But this means that sacrificing an animal to God was only a temporary save for the person who committed sin, because as humans were born sinners, they could not stop sinning, and since their nature was to sin, no matter how many sacrifices they made, ultimately, they were destined for Hell.

So because God saw every human as sinful and therefore was deserving of Hell, and because God would not and/or could not forgive and show mercy to his people, God came up with a crazy idea in the New Testament era on how to fix this problem and save them from eternal damnation...And it's an idea only our Heavenly Father could dream up. What was this crazy yet divine idea? Well as you know, sin always deserves punishment, consisting of eternal torture, and God would allow someone's sins to be forced onto an innocent person instead so that they would take the punishment instead of the actual sinner. So this wonderful and perfectly loving and moral god sent his own son, named Jesus, a completely sinless and innocent person to Earth, and forced him to sacrifice himself in order to take away the sins of others and to be punished for those sins instead, just like how the animals were sacrificed before. That's right. God forced his own son, an innocent person, to be tortured and killed in order to pay for the sins that have been committed by others. Except with God's son, this was considered the ultimate sacrifice. By ultimate sacrifice, we mean that it paid not only for the sins currently being committed, but also every sin that was committed in the past and every sin that will be committed in the future...sins that were often nothing wrong to begin with. And this wonderful plan would of course be number ten on God's list of evil involving salvation.

It is worth mentioning though that despite God's insistance that every sin be paid for and with eternal torture, God did seem to have made an exception for his son. Where everyone else would have to spend an eternity in Hell, Jesus only had to spend three days there. If God stays so perfectly within his own logic, then Jesus should have been committed there forever, but the fact that God allowed an exception shows that he can indeed stray from his "perfect" logic, and therefore should also have been able to do the same for humans. Also, you would think that God would be even more so willing to do that for the humans because Jesus was still God, and therefore could do "no wrong". Because God knew that humans were not perfect, it would be morally fitting and expected that God would cut them a break and hold them to a lower standard, especially since God is the one who made them so imperfect in the first place...But he did no such thing. Both the imperfect humans and the perfect son of God were held to the same exact standards. With that comparison, it is like perhaps expecting both humans and dogs to follow the laws of society exactly the same and to give them both the same kinds of punishments when they don't. Holding a perfect being to a very high standard, but then holding imperfect beings to the same standard is number eleven on the list. This standard of perfection being the basis of whether or not someone goes to Hell is unfair to begin with, but when you consider the fact that persons never asked to be born and thus injected into this evil game implemented by God to begin with, that just makes God more evil. He forces us to play. And in case you didn't know; that's the number twelfth reason why God is evil.

Anyways, sending his own son to be tortured and killed because God can't or won't forgive and show mercy, to a place of eternal torture which he created in the first place? That is the main idea of the story behind salvation. It is very difficult to understand how millions of persons have been convinced that God is perfect, moral, good, and loving, and that sending his son to die for everyone's sins was an act of love and goodness, when it was really just an act of evil. But the idea of salvation is not quite complete. There are four more things that shows that God is evil here.

When God had his own son tortured and killed as a sacrifice, human salvation was not a done deal for everyone. The plan was for everyone who wished to be saved, they would have to actually accept the sacrifice from Jesus, meaning they would have to believe in him in the first place, and to apologize to God for their sins and for the sins of their ancestors. As the Bible says, when Jesus died, God bought every person and they were now his. The acceptance of Jesus Christ's sacrifice and the repentance of their own and ancestors' sins was now the only way to be saved. No one from then on was allowed to transfer their sin onto others. You now had to believe in God in order to avoid Hell. Of course, Christians will say that it is not the disbelief that would send anyone to Hell. It is still their sin that sends them there. Not believing in God just keeps them from being saved. But it's really the same thing, because God set up for humans to fail since they were first created. God knew they would sin and he made it so that they would go to Hell if they sinned, and his ultimate plan was to have his son killed so that they could avoid it, and so in the end, humans would ultimately have to believe in God...and if they don't, then they are still going to Hell. In other words, humans have to believe in God, and he will send them to Hell if they don't. That is the thirteenth reason why God is evil. Plus, regardless of whether or not going to Hell was caused by their own sins; the fact that they were going there for other persons' sins does nothing to help God's moral character. Anyways, add to the fact that humans have no way of knowing whether or not God is real, and that there is no evidence of his existence to show that he is, and you have your fourteenth reason.

Now, it is clear that God is evil for his ethical views regarding salvation. He establishes many sins that are not even wrong in the first place, holds us to an impossible standard which according to him is perfect, and he created a place where persons will be sent to be tortured for an eternity if they sin and thus do not live up to this unreasonable expectation. Then he sacrifices his son, and says that in order to avoid such a punishment, you have to believe in him and accept the sacrifice; in addiiton to worshipping and repenting to him. In other words; not only is God evil for ridiculous sins, holding us to an impossible standard, and then punishing us in the worst possible way for not being able to live up to it, and requiring us to believe in and worship him, but it shows how he is evil for forcing his will upon us. This is the fifteenth reason why God is evil. He forces us to live according to his desire. He does not give us free will or any choice in the matter. If we do not live according to his will, then he will torture us forever. It's as simple as that. That's called force. So it is not just the wrong sins, the unreasonable perfect standards, eternal torture, or being required to believe in and worship him; it's also the fact that he forces his will upon his people.

The next and last reason why God is evil in the story of salvation is this: When Jesus died and everyone was expected to accept his sacrifice and to believe that he was God in order to avoid Hell, that was basically the only requirement you needed to go to Heaven and achieve salvation. According to some Christian religions, you also needed to live a life according to Biblical scripture, but that when you sinned, all you had to do was ask for forgiveness, and Jesus' sacrifice would have you covered. This means that every person, no matter who you are or what you do, can get into Heaven, just as long as you believe in God. It doesn't matter if you steal, rape, or long as you ask for forgiveness, you won't have to be punished for your crimes because Jesus was already punished for you. Because of this, any person is allowed to do whatever they want and no one is required to be held accountable for their actions. It is a complete debauchery of morality. It is absolutely unimaginable that a perfectly moral being would allow a rapist and murderer into Heaven only because they believed in God and asked for forgiveness, and yet someone who lived a near perfect moral life would go to Hell only because they did not believe in God. That is number sixteen.

So there you have it. That is basically the complete story behind salvation and is what every Christian, and to be honest, what every person should know about God sending Jesus to die for everyone's sins. It reveals that God is not good and loving, and the story of Jesus' sacrifice was not a story of love, but a story of evil. We have revealed sixteen reasons why the story of salvation shows God to be evil, and that is sixteen reasons as to why Christian salvation is a cultic joke. Unfortunately, Christians are not taught about salvation this way. They are trained to see this as the greatest love story every told. It takes a tremendous amount of brain programming to convince someone that the story on salvation actually shows God to be good and loving. As easy as it is for a reasonable person to see the story of salvation for what it really is, a brainwashed individual will swear that it is the perfect example of God's love, even though it is the perfect example of his evil.

Here is a recap of all sixteen scenarios that make God evil regarding the concept of salvation.

1.) spacer Most of what God considers sinful are not actually wrong, and yet most of his commands are.
2.) spacer All sins are treated the same; none are better or worse than others.
3.) spacer Sin always deserves punishment; there is no forgiveness or mercy.
4.) spacer The punishment for sin is extremely cruel; not appropriate for any sin at all.
5.) spacer Punishment is eternal; Infinite punishment for finite sins.
6.) spacer God allows anyone to pay for somebody's sins.
7.) spacer God allows sinners to force others to pay for their sins.
8.) spacer Transferring sin requires sacrifice; killing the person that you're transferring the sin to.
9.) spacer Persons are guilty of sin because of the sins of their ancestors; persons deserve Hell just for being born.
10.) spacer God had his own son tortured and killed to save sinners from an inappropriate punishment that God never had to give them in the first place.
11.) spacer God holds imperfect persons to a perfect standard; his own standard which is not perfect, but immoral.
12.) spacer Persons never ask to be born to attempt to live up to God's perfect standard; He forces us to play his game of evil.
13.) spacer God will send you to Hell for not believing in him.
14.) spacer God will send persons to Hell for not believing in him, even though he provides no way to actually know him.
15.) spacer God forces his will upon his people. If they do not do what he wants, they go to Hell.
16.) spacer Simply believing in God lets you get away with sins that are truly wrong, while good persons who don't believe in God go to Hell.

So from our understanding about Christians, especially cultic Christianity, the Christian definition of love is:

Creating a place of eternal torture where you will send persons to because they refuse to follow your will, such as to kill gay persons, and because of the wrong-doings that your ancestors have done...then murdering and torturing your own son so that you won't have to send them long as they believe in you and this ridiculous logic.

Their idea of love is like this:

A rapist is about to rape a woman, but says to the woman "I love you so much that I'm going to kill my son so that I won't have to rape you.". Then the rapist kills his own son and asks her if she accepts his sacrifice. If she does, he won't rape her. If she doesn't, then she gets raped. According to Christians, that's true love!

So in any case; burning in Hell forever? Whether God is evil or not, that's some scary stuff, so why wouldn't you want ot be saved? Well of course anyone would want to be saved from that. The problem is, every religion has their own idea of a bad place you go to when you die, and in reality, no such places exist. Sometimes salvation can have a real good purpose, but you know you are probably part of a cultic organization when salvation saves you from some form of torture and when the organization teaches that there is only one way, their way, to achieve it. Cults usually focus on this punishment to induce fear among its members, so that they will continue to give them money in order to avoid that eternal punishment. And of course, because their way is the only way, they're the only ones who can take the money and save you.

The 4th Watch cult believes in everything we just talked about regarding salvation, though of course, they're among the fools who believe that the story of salvation somehow shows that God is good, and this is a very significant piece of evidence that shows they are a cult. For if you can read this story on salvation and actually believe that it makes sense, and still be convinced in the end that it only shows how God is loving and good, then you truly are a brainwashed individual. It really takes cultic practices and cultic environments to be able to make someone think this way. If anyone knows this story, the whole story as presented here in this piece, and still thinks that God is good and that salvation makes sense, then it is safe to say that even if they are not in a cult, they have been subjected to cultic influences that have zombified their brains.

The 4th Watch celebrates this sacrifice and the resurrection of Jesus on the day that most religions celebrate Easter, though the 4th Watch prefers calling the holiday "Resurrection Sunday", perhaps because Easter pertains more to the Pagan aspects of the holiday. The Philippines is known for having several persons on Easter reenacting the crucifixion of Christ, litterally. Such persons are really tortured by being whipped, and actually crucified, complete with being nailed to a cross. The one exception is that they are not allowed to die. This kind of behavior is absolutely cultic, dangerous, and just plain stupid. It is a perfect example of the unbelievable things that superstition can cause you to do. As far as we know, the 4th Watch does not officially endorse this practice, but being based in the Philippines, and understanding their Pentecostal background, and given what we know about their beliefs and practices, we wouldn't be surprised if several 4th Watch cult members would engage in such behavior. We would like confirmation that the 4th Watch does not endorse this practice, but we will not be satisfied with any statement other than that they condemn it.

Section 9: Creation

Now we enter the subject of creation. Most religions, particularly theistic ones, teach how everything in existence, including all life on Earth, the planets themselves, and the entire universe, was created by a god or supernatural deity. This is known as creation, and is part of an ideology known as Creationism. Back in 2005, fundamentalist Christians in the U.S. tried to re-brand this ideology as a scientific theory and gave it the name "intelligent design". Schools are forbidden to teach religion as factual or as science, and this name-change was an attempt to have Creationism taught in school by hiding its religious affiliation. Fortunately, the courts ruled intelligent design was not a scientific theory and was not allowed to be taught in school. However, Creationists still like to refer to creationism as intelligent design when attempting to make it sound scientific.

Creationism consists of a god creating the universe and all life forms in the forms they're in now. In other words, everything popped into existence out of nothing, consisting of all the lifeforms we see today...all from magic. This goes against the scientific concepts of the big bang, abiogenesis, and evolution...not to mention common sense. The big bang covers how the universe expanded to be the universe it is today, abiogenesis explains how life began, and evolution is how lifeforms changed, including how they changed into human beings. These three scientific theories have an enormous amount of evidence, evolution in particular, that shows they are correct. Creation however, has no evidence to support it. Because of this, Creationism cannot be considered a theory; perhaps a hypothesis at most. Nearly all scientists confirm and believe in the scientific theories of the big bang, abiogenesis, and evolution.

But be that as it might, many persons still believe in some form of creation. This is most often due to a lack of education, or proper education, in which they simply do not understand how these phenomena work. But many such persons are just overly superstitious. To them, it is too difficult to try and understand the science, and it is much easier for them to believe that a supernatural deity created the universe by magic. For these persons, it is extremely difficult to imagine the universe not being created by some intelligent being.

Because so many persons still believe in this outdated concept of a god creating everything, it is difficult to call creation a cultic idea, despite it being odd and going against all forms of rationality and scientific evidence. But while many persons still believe in some form of creation, many of those persons still believe in the scientific theories; they just believe that a god is the one responsible for putting it all in motion. But hard-core Creationists reject all science in this respect and ignore the evidence. They come up with ridiculous excuses to believe in their nonsense, such as claiming that dinosaurs lived with humans, that the meat-eating dinosaurs didn't eat the humans because they were actually vegetarians, or, that dinosaurs didn't exist at all; that the bones we find are only God's way of testing our faith. In fact, they even go so far as to call evolution "evil". It is this kind of thinking that really makes the concept of creation cultic.

anti-religious picture

Rejecting the scientific facts can have serious negative consequences. The most dangerous aspect of Creationism is its rejection of evolution. Evolution is a verified scientific fact of nature. While believing in some ideas concerning religion is mostly harmless, rejecting evolution can be damaging. Medicine is greatly influenced by our knowledge of evolution. Studying evolution has helped us to unlock the secrets of biology and has also helped us to understand our own humanity. The greatest benefit of believing in evolution, is that by understanding how it works, we have been able to increase the effectiveness of medical treatments by understanding how diseases evolve and how to counter this evolution with alternative methods of treatment. If we ignored evolution, we would still be treating bacterial infections like we did several years ago which were not as effective, and we would be seeing more pain and death today if we did not apply what we know about evolution to medicine. By ignoring the truth of evolution and instead believing in fairytale fiction, we limit our progress in experiencing longer and more joyful lives, while setting ourselves up for the same kind of pain and suffering we had a hundred years ago. But it's not just that; These three things; the big bang, abiogenesis, and evolution greatly help us to understand so much about our universe, our planet, our lives, and our past. To give all that up because of superstitious ideology makes no sense, and is dangerous to our progress as both humans and a society.

The 4th Watch embraces creation, the idea that their god created the entire universe and all living things. They reject every theory which refutes their Creationism. They especially hate evolution, and have adopted the intelligent design strategy to force the teaching of their religion in schools, and would even go as far as eliminating the teachings of evolution altogether. In addition to this, the 4th Watch does not only believe that evolution is false, but that it is strictly immoral to believe in it. They teach that evolution is a concept invented by the Devil and belief in it is an excuse to commit evil. This kind of talk and beliefs are nothing short of cultic behavior.

Section 10: Metaphysics


As with most religions, the church of the 4th Watch attempts to give persons a reason as to why they are here and what meaning they have for their existence. There is nothing cultic about seeking out answers for these types of questions. However, what are cultic are the answers that the 4th Watch provides to their members.

The 4th watch cult teaches that the only reason why you are here is to be a witness to God's goodness. Other than that, the cult wants you to believe that you mean absolutely nothing to this existence and serve no purpose. They want you to believe that you are worthless, that there is no value in your life. You are nothing but an evil sinner in God's eyes. And you have no right to love yourself or to feel joy in anything God has placed in your world. In other words, you are nothing. And, you will always be nothing in the eyes of God. Yet, despite this, you must worship and love God with all your might, to see how "good" he is. And if you don't, he will torture you forever.

First of all, what a horrible thing to teach persons, especially children...that you don't mean anything and have no purpose? That you are worthless and have no value? That you are nothing but evil and a sinner, and that you have no right to love yourself or anything else? They teach you that you are nothing? Is this really what anyone would consider good religion? This is truly one of the sickest and most disturbing philosophies of the 4th Watch cult. We believe that the only ones who perhaps have no meaning, worth, or value, or who are nothing but evil and sinners, are the 4th Watch cult members themselves. Do not listen to these mindless losers. They have very little intelligence and wisdom, so why would you trust the meaning of your life to cult members? In actuality, you are a special person. There is no price that can be set for your life, or the lives of your loved ones. You are special, and never forget it. Loving yourself is not just an option, it is an obligation. As far as what meaning or purpose you have in your life, that is for you to figure out, no one else. Nobody can come along and dictate to you what meaning you have in this universe. You are free. Be yourself. Love yourself. Love others too.

Second of all, God is not good, he is evil, so witnessing his good is hardly possible. If God only created you to witness his so-called goodness, then it only shows how disgustingly proud and inconsiderate he is. And if he's going to kill you and torture you forever if you don't love and worship him constantly, then clearly we would only be witnessing his evil, not good.

Here are some quotes from 4th Watchers that reflect their metaphysical views:

During one of his sermons, sub-cult leader and head pastor of the 4th Watch touched up on some of their metaphysical views when he talked about loving the world, having ambitions, and the importance of having dreams and desires. According from the cult leader's own mouth, we are not to love the world, we are not to have ambitions, and our dreams and desires really aren't important at all. Take a look at his words:

spacer table section spacer table section
Jonathon Ferriol spacer Our morality is going down to the dogs. Our spirituality is becoming more flawed, and in many parts of the world, it is no longer there, it has become already void and absent. This world is dying, morally speaking, as well as physically speaking. That is why we need to understand certain things as we see these hardships. If our world is temporal; if our world is passing and fading away and disappearing, why invest in this world? That's the argument there.

If you see the world dying, why would you invest in a dying investment? Why would you invest your time and energy in a project that is gasping for its last breath? The book of Matthew chapter 6 verse 19; Jesus Christ our savior himself said do not store up for yourselves treasures on Earth, where thieves break in. Do not; Because eventually whatever you attempt to invest, whatever you seek to invest will eventually disappear, because this world and its system is dying. It is futile. It's vain. You cannot bet on the world, because it's a losing card. You're gonna' end up losing more than you can gain. This world is dying, so you should not invest in this world, rather invest in God's kingdom.

Now I have nothing against dreams for decent living. By all means, find a job, and be able to live a decent life; but do not let your earthly ambitions get in the way of your heavenly ambitions; Because in this world, everything will eventually pass away. So even if you lose your house here on earth, if you have a mansion on Heaven; that's good enough.

It's okay to be poor for eighty years of your life on Earth, but for eternity you're gonna' be so rich. It's okay to be without friends. It's okay not to have a friend in Facebook and Friendster. Anyway, in eternity, you will be rubbing shoulders with the mighty, with the saints, and with the angels. And so in the book of 1st John chapter 2 verse 15-17, there the apostle John exhorts us not to love the world, or the things of the world, because this world, the Bible says, this world in its present form is passing away. It says there, the world and its desires pass away. To God be the glory. Do not invest. Do not love the world; Because the world is not beautiful, the world is not pretty, the world is not pleasent; it is a corpse. It's already a cadaver. The ideas of the world are dead. There's nothing you can gain from it. There's no use loving what is dead.

Such unnacceptable talk could only come from a cult. We cannot allow our children to be subjected to this. Everyone in the world has the right to be happy, and to have meaningful lives; And we need to stop inscribing into persons' heads that any meaning in your life must be about God. We are all individuals with dreams and desires, and we have every right to be ambitious about them, and we need to pursue them without always believing that the end of the world is coming, or that there is no meaning in our life because we die. Their metaphysical views are another reason to stay away from this cult.

Section 11: The Apocalypse

One of the more frightening aspects of religions is their doctrines on the end of the world, which is part of a series of other frightening events known as the Apocalypse. As many religions have their own ideas on how the world and everything in it was created, they also have their own idea on how everything will end. Christianity has an especially elaborate story which Christians believe was brought to them by a revelation also known as the Apocalypse. Exactly what happens varies somewhat among the different Christian religions, but we will try to give a decent overall explanation of it here.

First, before the apocalypse takes place, we will enter a period of time in which every event of the apocalypse takes place in known as the End Times. We will know that we are in the End Times when we witness special signs that warn us that the Apocalypse will soon take place. Examples of such signs include earthquakes, wars, and atheists. The rise of the Antichrist, a very evil person who will do the best he can to turn others against Christ, will rise during this time. After all of these special signs have come to pass, the Apocalypse will begin. The Apocalypse starts with an event known as the Rapture, in which all of the believers and only the believers, vanish instantly, appearing with Jesus in the air, who then takes them to his kingdom. The day this happens is known as Judgment Day. After the Rapture, Jesus then begins the Tribulation, in which for the next seven years, everyone who was left after the others were taken, those who did not believe, are judged by Christ and killed off to join Satan, while the Earth is being destroyed with fire. The Earth's fiery destruction is often referred to as Hell on Earth. During this time, the Anti-Christ will gain power. It is shortly after this when Jesus will return to Earth, and it is this event that is known as the Second Coming of Christ. At the end of the Tribulation, there will be a great battle known as the Battle at Armeggedon, fought by Satan and his army of non-believers, including the Antichrist, against Jesus and his chosen people. Jesus will defeat Satan, and Satan will be bound inside of a bottomless pit and all of his army will be thrown into a lake of fire where they will experience torment for the rest of eternity. After all of this has happened and the Tribulation has ended, Jesus will set up his Millennial Kingdom on Earth, where he will rule for a thousand years in which there will be peace among all peoples. After the thousand years, God will let Satan out to tempt anyone remaining in this kingdom into sin. After this, Jesus will destroy the Earth, carrying out the End of the World. The day this happens is referred to as Doomsday. Jesus will then judge everyone who has ever lived, rewarding believers, and punishing non-believers. All non-believers are sent to Hell, where they will be tortured forever. All believers are sent to Heaven with Jesus, where they will worship God forever.

Wow, that's quite a fairytale! Apparently, we have been living in the End Times for nearly two-thousand years now, because every new generation on this Earth always seems to believe that Jesus will return in their lifetimes. In fact, at least once every year, some kook somewhere in the world makes a prediction as to when exactly the end of the world will happen, but every one of these dates come to pass and the world never seems to end; Perhaps because it's all a bunch of bull?

All notions of the Apocalypse and the end of the world are complete cultic fairytales, and anyone who says differently are no doubt programmed by cultic organizations. The Christian religion teaches the Apocalypse, but cults practically specialize in it. While most Christian churches do teach about such events, it is mostly the Christian cults that can't stop talking about it. Basically, only cults incorporate these kinds of teachings in so much of their preaching. The end of the world fantasies in which cults love to embrace are among the most prominent cultic features that fuel their existence and growth. Cults love anything to do with the end of the world. They practically wet themselves talking about the likes of Armaggedon and the Rapture. This is because cults thrive on producing fear, and the notion of the world ending with pain, death, and eternal suffering keeps that fear alive, and the imaginary short time limit that cults place on the world helps them to obtain more slaves into their cultic grip.

Any church that includes a great portion of their teachings being the end of the world, the Apocalypse, the Rapture, the end times, the second coming of Jesus, and anything related to this, is probably a cult. This is most especially true when the church teaches as to when this will all take place, or if they claim that we are in the end times now, that the Apocalypse will happen very soon, possibly even within our own lifetimes. If you hear someone tell you that they believe Jesus will return within their lifetime, this is evidence that you are dealing with a cultic nut. But an even greater sign that you are dealing with a cult is when all of these end time apocalyptic teachings are proclaimed by a leader of a church, actually given to this person by God himself. When this happens, don't You have just met a cult leader.

The PMCC 4th Watch is a Christian cult that embraces such apocalyptic much so that their name is based off of them, as well as their school. The cult teaches that we are now in the end times...that all of the signs for the Apocalypse are here, and that Jesus is coming soon, and that the Rapture could happen at any minute or any day now. Of course, they've been teaching this now for the past thirty years, just as much as the other cults that came before them, ever since the death of Jesus. But anyways, the leader of the 4th Watch, Arsenio Ferriol, claims that God himself revealed to him that the Apocalypse will soon be happening; well of course, it's practically a requirement for every cult leader to have such a revelation from God; otherwise, what kind of cult leader would you be? This revelation also told of how time was divided into four periods by God called "watches", and according to God, the fourth watch is the End Time, and that we are all now living in the fourth watch, so we are all now indeed living in the end times. Arsenio called his church the "4th Watch" after this end time revelation. Of course, the 4th Watch is an invention of Arsenio himself, just as the Apocalypse was an invention of someone else before him, and how Jesus was an invention before him, and so on. It is an unbiblical concept, but one in which Arsenio and his church have used exhaustingly to take advantage of persons by inducing fear, and then using that fear to enslave new members. New members mean more money, more power, more glory...And the end time teachings are imposed even more so on their students in the 4th Watch Maranatha Christian school in the Philippines, and according to a 4th Watcher, "maranatha" means "the Lord is coming"; though they have since changed that name.

4th Watchers are absolutely convinced that they are all now living in the End Times and that Jesus will be returning soon, most likely whithin their lifetime. The cult has them so full of paranoia, that with every bad thing that happens in the world, they see it as a sign from God that they are indeed in the End Times and that Jesus' return will be hapening shortly. Seriously; if there is a hurricane, it will be a sign of the End Times. If there is an earthquake, it's a sign of the End Times. If they see an atheist on TV, it's an obvious sign that the end is near. With these guys, someone could blow their nose and one of them will take it as a sign. They make videos about the Rapture, using the fear that they to scare other persons into following their paranoia. Constantly being afraid of the end of the world is superstition to the max.

Just listen to some of these paranoid cultic fools:

Section 12: The Fourth Watch

The fourth watch is unique to the PMCC 4th Watch religion. According to the teachings of the 4th Watch cult, God divided the time of the Earth into four different time periods. These time periods are called watches. According to the cult, the first three watches have passed, and we are now living in the fourth watch. The fourth watch is significant because this is the last watch we have to live on Earth, and it is in this watch that the Earth will end. The fourth watch is the watch that contains the Apocalypse; when Jesus makes his return and the Rapture takes place. This is the time when Armageddon will occur and everyone will be judged. In other words, we are now living in the End Times, and this is where the cult gets part of its name.

In the Bible, days were divided into four periods called watches, used when soldiers would take turns being on guard, and the fourth watch was the last period of the day. The notion of the fourth watch involving time being divided into four periods, and the End Time being the fourth watch, is not in the Bible, but the leader of the 4th Watch cult says that this concept was revealed to him by God. But of course, we know that this is not true. The fourth watch is an invention of Arsenio Ferriol, an unbiblical concept in which he is using the fourth watch of the Bible as a way to name the end times of his religion. This is a very smart way for Arsenio to entertain his followers' minds and to look credible without having to be responsible for anything. It's like the cult leader can predict when Jesus will return without actually predicting it. Having four watches and us living in the last one helps make it seem like Jesus will be returning very shortly, yet the last watch that we are living in could be a thousand or so more years! Thus, it ultimately helps him to take more money and live a very pleasurable life before he dies.

As we covered previously, the 4th Watch cult embraces apocalyptic teachings, so much so that their name is based off of them. They love preaching about the end of the world, and they love telling everyone how we're all in the end times now. It's practically a slogan. Arsenio and his church have intensively used such teachings to take advantage of persons by inducing fear, and then using that fear to enslave new members. New members mean more money, power, and glory for the cult leader, Arsenio Ferriol, the inventor of the fourth watch.

Just as much as the fourth watch is an unbiblical concept, it is a cultic one too. Any time a leader of a church teaches something which comes from God but not from the Bible, and then uses the excuse that God himself told him that his teachings were true, you know you are probably looking at a cult leader. It is especially cultic when a leader uses a concept that is used to induce fear and superstition, as part of the name created for his religion.

We will also repeat here what we said on the apocalypse piece, that any church that includes a great portion of their teachings being the end of the world, the Apocalypse, the Rapture, the end times, the second coming of Jesus, and anything related to this, is probably a cult. This is most especially true when the church teaches as to when this will all take place, or if they claim that we are in the end times now, that the Apocalypse will happen very soon, possibly even within our own lifetimes. If you hear someone tell you that they believe Jesus will return within their lifetime, this is evidence that you are dealing with a cultic nut. But an even greater sign that you are dealing with a cult is when all of these end time apocalyptic teachings are proclaimed by a leader of a church, actually given to this person by God himself. When this happens, don't You have just met a cult Arsenio Ferriol, inventor of the fourth watch concept and leader of the 4th Watch cult.
