Wormwood: The Cult of Belial

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership can righteousness have with wickedness?
Or what fellowship does light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
2 Corinthians 6:14-15 (BSB)

If someone claims, “I know God,”
but doesn’t obey God’s commandments,
that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.
1 John 2:4 (NLT) ✝ Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Exodus 20:16 (KJV) ✝

Those who mock the poor insult their Maker;
those who rejoice at the misfortune of others will be punished.
Proverbs 17:5 (NLT) ✝
Many will follow in their depravity, and because of them
the way of truth will be defamed.
2 Peter 2:2 (BSB) ✝

There is a grievous evil I have seen under the sun:
wealth hoarded to the harm of its owner.
Ecclesiastes 5:13 (BSB) ✝ And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world
but lose your own soul?
Is anything worth more than your soul?
Matthew 16:26 (NLT) ✝

Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
Proverbs 16:18 (NIV) ✝ Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done.
They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight.
They are a disgrace and a stain among you.
They delight in deception even as they eat with you
in your fellowship meals.
2 Peter 2:13 (NLT) ✝
