8 ¶ And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
Jews killed Christians. Christians killed Jews. Catholics killed Anabaptists and Protestants. Protestants killed Catholics. Catholics killed Muslims. Muslims killed Catholics and Protestants. Hindus killed Buddhists. Muslims killed Hindus. Buddhists killed Hindus. It just goes on and on throughout history. False religion not only kills true followers of God, trying to worship God’s way, and not only them but even other false religions as they try to justify themselves before God without following God.
John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
Mark 15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? 10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.
The Roman Catholic Church viewed itself as Christ’s kingdom on earth, ruling the earth in His name and in His place, following manmade tradition, political violence, and religious carnage. The British Empire believed it was put in place by God with the King or Queen as head of the Anglican Church, God’s representative on earth, spreading Christianity around the globe with cannon and shot. Evangelicals in America dictated foreign policy in the disastrous turn of FDR and his predecessors from Japan to China after World War One and even today push the government to support Israel and gloat about that support, even though the American government works at odds with what is in Israel’s best interests and tells that country what to do. False religion murders, bombs, shoots, stabs, incinerates, and whether they are Christians, Muslims, Hindus, or what, they then walk into their self-made temples, mosques, or churches with heads held high proud of their service for God.
And so Cain killed Abel.
