The Church of Euthanasia
"Save the Planet, Kill Yourself"
The Church of Euthanasia (CoE) is a dadaist organization started by Rev. Chris Korda in the Boston, Massachusetts area of the United States. According to the church's website, it is "a non-profit educational foundation devoted to restoring balance between Humans and the remaining species on Earth." The CoE uses sermons, music, culture jamming, publicity stunts and direct action combined with an underlying sense of satire and black humor to highlight Earth's unsustainable population. The CoE is notorious for its conflicts with anti-abortion Christian activists.
According to the church's website, the one commandment is "Thou shalt not procreate". The CoE further asserts four principle pillars: suicide, abortion, cannibalism ("strictly limited to consumption of the already dead"), and sodomy ("any sexual act not intended for procreation"). The church stresses population reduction by voluntary means only. Therefore murder, rape and involuntary sterilization are strictly forbidden by church doctrine.
The Church gained early attention in 1995 because of its affiliation with paranoia.com which hosted many sites that were controversial or skirted illegality. Members later appeared on an episode of The Jerry Springer Show titled "I Want to Join a Suicide Cult".
The church's website previously had instructions on "how to kill yourself" by asphyxiation using helium. These pages were removed in 2003 after a 52-year-old woman used them to commit suicide in St. Louis County, Missouri, resulting in legal threats against the church.

"Scientifically advanced humanoid extraterrestrials created humans"
Raëlism is the religious, naturalist belief system promoted by the Raëlian Movement, an atheist UFO religion founded in 1970s which focuses on the social ideas of sexual self-determination, individualism, and humanitarianism in the spirit of sharing and responsibility, which, they claim, will bring a new age of wealth and peace guided by those with greater intelligence, as predicted by main religions. They also believe in scientifically advanced humanoid extraterrestrials known by our primitive ancestors as Elohim (or "those who came from the sky"). Raëlism espouses belief that Elohim synthesized life on Earth through mastery of genetic engineering, and that human cloning and "mind transfer" are mechanisms by which eternal life may be achieved.
According to Raël, a message explaining our origins and future was dictated to him in December 1973, during personal meetings with a 25,000-year-old extraterrestrial named Yahweh who came in a UFO. The story goes that after terraforming the Earth, human beings from another planet — the "Elohim" (Hebrew for the word "God" as found in the Hebrew Old Testament, which the extraterrestrial himself translated as meaning those who came from the sky in ancient Hebrew) — created humans and all life on earth using DNA manipulation and genetic engineering. The message dictated to Raël during his encounter with the Elohim states that the Elohim contacted about forty people to act as their prophets on Earth, among which are those who founded the world's major religions (Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad, etc.)
The Raëlians believe, furthermore, that the Elohim will visit the earth officially when enough of its population is peaceful and come to know about them. They believe this is foretold in all religious texts - the predicted "Age of Apocalypse" or "Revelation" (unveiling of the truth).
Committed suicide to take their souls to a spaceship behind Comet Hale-Bopp
Funders of Heaven's Gate, M. Applewhite and B. Truesdale, claimed to have arrived via UFO from another dimension (a "level above human") and would return via a secretive "Process", which was taught to cult members. One of the group's publications, "How To Build A U.F.O.", purported to describe an interplanetary spacecraft built out of materials such as old tires.
The cult's end coincided with the appearance of Comet Hale-Bopp in 1997. In 2007, Applewhite convinced thirty-eight followers to commit suicide so that their souls could take a ride on a spaceship that they believed was hiding behind the comet carrying Jesus. All 39 were dressed in identical black shirts and sweat pants, brand new black-and-white Nike tennis shoes, and armband patches reading "Heaven's gate away team".
Aum Shinrikyo was a Japanese religious group created by Shoko Asahara. In 1995 the group was reported as having 9,000 members in Japan, and as many as 40,000 worldwide. The core of Aum doctrine are Buddhist scriptures included in the Pali Canon of Theravada Buddhism.
Nearly blind Shoko Asahara, whose real name is Chizuo Matsumoto, changed his name after an alleged revelation-inspired trip to the Himalayas, where he actually changed his religion. Through his charismatic appeal, [img]Asahara allegedly managed to attract no less than 40,000 highly-educated and wealthy Japanese citizens, by telling them they would escape imminent apocalypse, should they join his cult.[/img]
The cult started attracting controversy in the late 1980's with accusations of deception of recruits, and of holding cult members against their will and forcing members to donate money. A murder of a cult member who tried to leave is now known to have taken place in February 1989. The cult is known to have considered assassinations of several individuals critical of the cult.
On the morning of 20th March 1995, Aum members released sarin in a co-ordinated attack on five trains in the Tokyo subway system, killing 12 commuters, seriously harming 54 and affecting 980 more. Prosecutors allege that Asahara was tipped off about planned police raids on cult facilities by an insider, and ordered an attack in central Tokyo to divert attention away from the group.
After the 1995 attack on the subway, police found gold bars, chemicals and millions of yen near an Aum compound.At the cult's headquarters in Kamikuishiki on the foot of Mount Fuji, police found explosives, chemical weapons and biological warfare agents, such as anthrax and Ebola cultures, and a Russian MIL Mi-17 military helicopter. There were stockpiles of chemicals which could be used for producing enough sarin to kill four million people.
After Asahara's arrest and trial, the cult re-grouped under the new name of Aleph in February 2000.
Aum's weapons program was carried out by a coterie of highly educated scientists from Japan's best schools. Asahara's flock was bewitched by his predictions of an Armageddon that only cult members would survive.
Asahara, the cult’s leader, and 12 other high-ranking members are now on death row for an array of charges. 10 have exhausted their appeals. Several Aum members are still on the run.
The Body of Christ
Founder's son was not fed and died; they were "waiting for a sign from God to feed him"
The Body of Christ is a small authoritarian group that relies on "direct revelation" and not the Bible for its direction. This small cult has been in the news because it is believed that two children have died unnecessarily.
Samuel Robidoux, the ten month old son of the cult founder's son, Jacques, died of malnutrition. He was not fed because they were waiting for a sign from God to feed him.
Rebecca Corneau's child, Jeremiah, died shortly after childbirth reportedly due to the lack of basic medical care. Corneau is now eight and one half months pregnant (as of September, 15th, 2000) and the courts have intervened to try to protect it. The American Civil Liberties Union and other Pro-Choice Advocates worry that this case might set a dangerous legal precedent by showing more concern for an unborn child than the wishes of the mother.
Former member Dennis Mingo left the group after ten years, and gave a diary that described the deaths of the two children to police. Despite months of effort, police have not been able to locate the children's bodies. The group denounces the ''seven systems'' of mainstream society, including education, government, banking, religion, medicine, science and entertainment. Consequently, members of the group have refused to cooperate with all authorities and have refused legal counsel. They have even refused to assert their basic constitutional right against self-incrimination. This Millennial group expects the world will erupt in violence and turmoil at any moment, and that they alone will be saved.
Nagkalintek-lintek na ang boung mundo sa mga reli-relihiyon na mga yan.
Pinaka una na kapag may sangkot na kwalta ay ding-di na naka base yan sa mga yapak ng apostoles na sinundan nila mula sa tunay na Daan na walang iba kundi ang Nag-iisang DIOS at Tagapagligtas na nagkatawang tao, ang Panginoong HESUKRISTO.
Nangangagpapatayan, nangagngagpaligsahan na kung sino ang tunay, tama na ipinangangalandakan na sa kani-kanilang sapi saping samahan lang ang kaligtasan. Sinasangkalan ang Salita ng DIOS na nasulat sa literal, pisikal na pangunawa na resulta tuloy ng kanilang mga pagpapahayag ay nagka liko-liko. Pulot dito, pulot doon at ikakama sa kani-kanilang mga katuruan at doktrina attt ayun sila na ang mga ika nila ay asa tamang daan na.
Ispiritwal na Kapahayagan tapos iispiritwalin mula sa konteksto kaakibat ang lohika, pilosopiya na kung anu-anu pang galing lang naman sa karnal na kaisipang karaniwa'y napagaralan, nagsunog ng kilay o sa pag kaka indoktrina lang.
Sandamukal na tuloy ang mga nangatisod, nangawala ang mga paniniwala dahil dahil sa mga hidwang pananampalatayang iyan. Kung hindi ba naman sila nabulag eh !!!!!!! Pilit na pilit na isiniksik, inihahalo ang mga pisikal na buhay at mga makamundong pangyayari ng kalamidad, taggutom, taghirap, at kaguluhan sa essensyang ispiritwal.
Mabubulok, babaho, uuurin at , maaaganas lang ang katawang pisikal na yan sa isang iglap ng ating kamatayan na kahit sino namang tao ay di niya inaasahang daratal.
Mga kapamunuan na mga yan na sariling proklama lang naman nila tapos isinasangkot pa ang pamamahayag na sila lang daw ang nasa tunay na landas ng kaligtasan ng kaluluwa't ispiritu ng isang nilalang sa di inaasahan nitong kamatayang pisikal.
Ding-di magiging patas ang nag-iisang DIOS na nagkatawang tao kapag ganyan na inihahayag nila na may kinalaman SIYA sa mga literal at mga pisikal na kaganapan sa mundong ibabaw na ito.
Tiyak na tiyak na lalala at lalala pa ang pagkalantad ng mga kabuktutang yan ng mga nagkalat na hidwang pananampalataya at paniniwala sa DIOS na yan. Napapanahon dahil sa pag-usbong nitong malawakang sandaigdigang elektronikong panghimpapawid na mga pag-uugnayan sa kalatasan, balitaan, pagpapalitan, pagkalap ng impormasyon na sa isang iglap lang at ilang mga pindot ay kagyat na maaabot at mapapagalaman.
Nation of Yahweh:
"Black people are the true Jews"
Nation of Yahweh is a predominately African American religious group that is an offshoot of the Black Hebrew Israelites line of thought. They were formed in the late 1970s in Miami-Dade county. While the Nation of Yahweh falls under the umbrella of Black Hebrew Israelites, their beliefs are unique and distinct from that of other known Black Hebrew Israelite groups. The founder and creator of the religion is Yahweh ben Yahweh. The group has engendered controversy due to legal issues of its founder. It also faced accusations of being a black supremacist cult by the Southern Poverty Law Center and The Miami Herald.
The SPLC criticized the beliefs of the Nation of Yahweh as racist for the following reason. They state the group believed blacks are "the true Jews" and that whites were "white devils." In addition to this they claim the group believed Yahweh ben Yahweh had a Messianic mission to vanquish whites and that they held views similar to the Christian Identity movement. They quote Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance as saying groups like theirs are "the black counterpart of us."
Despite the recent death of their leader (see Yahweh ben Yahweh), the Nation of Yahweh is still active. Its members also claim to have abandoned their past racism; the leader's daughter has apparently stated that all people are children of God. An attorney and member of the group, Wendelyn Rush, insists their current war with the U.S. government is a non-violent verbal battle. The group is currently spread throughout the US and is no longer concentrated in one location (formerly Miami-Dade county). Their present literature downplays and has nearly erased all past racism.
Despite some of these present changes, much of the same rhetoric and codes of behavior have remained essentially the same as when the group began. Most still insist that Yahweh ben Yahweh is "Grand Master of All, the God of the Universe, the Grand Potentate, the Everlasting Father and the persecuted Messiah." A few elderly members consider 9-11 to have been a punishment from God for his imprisonment. Pledges of devotion to him and war against infidels allegedly still exist.
The Unification Church (Mooneyism) is a new religious movement started by Sun Myung Moon in Korea in the 1940s. The beliefs of the church are explained in the book Divine Principle and draw from the Bible as well as Asian traditions and include belief in a universal God; in the creation of a literal Kingdom of Heaven on earth; in the universal salvation of all people, good and evil as well as living and dead; that Jesus did not come to die; and that the Lord of the Second Coming must be a man born in Korea early in the 20th century who must marry and have children.
In the United States in the 1970s, the media reported on the high-pressure recruitment methods of Unificationists and said that the church separated vulnerable college students from their families through the use of brainwashing or mind control. Moon dismissed these criticisms, stating in 1976 that he had received many thank-you letters from parents whose children became closer to them after joining the movement. Moon and his wife were banned from entry into Germany and the other 14 Schengen treaty countries, on the grounds that they are leaders of a sect that endangered the personal and social development of young people. The Netherlands and a few other Schengen states let Moon and his wife enter their countries in 2005. In 2006 the German Supreme Court overturned the ban.
In 1993, Chung Hwa Pak released the book Roku Maria no Higeki (Tragedy of the Six Marys) through the Koyu Publishing Co. of Japan. The book contained allegations that Moon conducted sex rituals amongst six married female disciples (“The Six Marys”) who were to have prepared the way for the virgin who would marry Moon and become the True Mother. Chung Hwa Pak had left the movement when the book was published and later withdrew the book from print when he rejoined the Unification Church. Before his death Chung Hwa Pak published a second book, The Apostate, and recanted all allegations made in Roku Maria no Higeki.
This Religious World
Man craves the help of the "supernatural," but he doesn’t want his "natural" meddled with too much. He wants to go to some sort of heaven, if that place is less disagreeable than the other place, but he doesn’t want to behave here as the Bible indicates he must behave there. I have known many men to recite publicly, "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven," who would be bored by the heavenly type of hilarity.
This is a religious world, but religion may include reverence for a cow or a temple monkey. India leads the world in the number of its gods, sacred places, animals, "holy men," and a spectacular devotion; and what has the rabble of gods done for India? It is fair to test gods by what happens to nations that are devoted to them. It is fair to test God by what happens to nations that disobey Him. Millions of Mohammedans pray five times a day, and what has their religion done for them? A similar question would apply to nations that worship ancestors, and the tribes dominated by witch doctors. If I were to suggest five places that are good places to come away from, three of them would be North Pole, South Pole, and Sahara desert; the other two would be where they "honor the God of forces," and the land where the chief national shrine is a corpse. There is a worse place farther down the same road, but where would its guests go if they left it?
Rizalistas. Members of religious movements in the Philippines which honour José Rizal y Mercado (1861–96) as divine, as the power of the Holy Spirit, as a second Christ, or as a new messiah who will return. Rizal was an intellectual, physician, novelist, and nationalist who was shot by the Spanish after the Philippines revolution broke out. Although not himself especially religious, he has become a national martyr and symbol of Philippine independence. Among the larger movements are Bathalismo (Bathala, ‘God’) claiming to antedate the arrival of the Spanish; Banner of the Race Church (Watawat ng Lahi) which resembles Roman Catholicism and awaits the return of Rizal; Sacred Church of the Race (Iglesia Sagrada ng Lahi) with its own ancient ‘bible’ kept secret until Rizal appeared as God on earth; Philippine Church or Adarnistas (after ‘Mother Adarna’ the founder) for whom Rizal was not executed but lives as true God and man; Patriotic Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Quotes and GOD ' Words above, our spiritual buckler at this times of current world events too devastating for some human beings to endure due to evil that some men do.
Existing religions, sects or denominations indeed preached their so-called apostolic way but there were uncertainties unconsciously declared by their leader and founders upon their followers.
Must be only Christianity of the first apostles and in reality without any added rituals and money collecting schemes loosely incorporating justifications based from the Bible.
