  11. catholic, muslim, buddhism, hinduism etc. they are all together leading a lot of people to the lake of fire 🔥. because it’s satan religions that runs this world, the father of all lies. HOLY BIBLE is the TRUTH alone not the rituals or traditions of men. Lord Jesus Christ is the way the TRUTH and the life, no one comes to the Father except Him🙏❤️🕊 not mary, pope, buddha , alla of koran, dead saints or anybody else! REPENT, believe in the Gospel
