Only in Christ is there salvation. Idolatry is damned.
THE GOSPEL: THE POWER OF GOD FOR THE SALVATION OF
ALL WHO BELIEVE
I. Humanity Without Christ
The Pagans Adore Idols
18. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of those men who in wickedness hold back the truth of God, 19. seeing that what may be known about God is manifest to them. For God has manifested it to them. 20. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes are clearly seen - his everlasting power also and divinity-being understood through the things that are made. And so they are without excuse, 21. seeing that, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless minds have been darkened. 22. For while professing to be wise, they have become fools, 23. and they have changed the glory of the incorruptible for an image made like to corruptible man and to birds and four footed beasts and creeping things.
Punishment of Idolaters
24. Therefore God has given them up in the lustful desires of their heart to uncleanness, so that they dishonor their own bodies among themselves- 25. they who exchange the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator who is blessed forever, amen.
26. For this cause God has given them upto shameful lusts; for their women have exchanged the natural use for that which is against nature 27.and in like manner the men also having abandoned the natural use of the woman, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men doing shameless things and receiving in themselves the fitting recompense of their perversity. 28. And as they have resolved against possessing the knowledge of God, God has given them up to a reprobate sense, so that they do what is not fitting, 29. being filled with all iniquity, malice, immorality, avarice, wickedness; being full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity being whisperers, 30. detractors, hateful to God, irreverent, proud, haughty, plotters of evil disobedient to parents, 31. foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. 32. Although they have known the ordinance of God, they have not understood that those who practise such things are deserving of death. And not only do they do these things, but they applaud others doing them.
St. Mark 13
2 Thess. 1
St. Paul wrote of spiritual marks in his person that made him a bondservant of Christ. He gloried is this and not in himself.
The Devil has sought from the beginning to impress men with the Devil’s own mark of diabolic rebellion against God. One of the prime methods the Devil uses is idolatry. The Tower of Babel is the prime example of this. Satan’s aim is summed up in the Devil’s final subversion of men wherein those men who choose to will take the The Mark, the Name, the Number of the beast in concert with the final idolatrous version of Babel. The final idolatrous version of Babel is the universal revival of idolatrous paganism throughout the earth culminating in the rebuilt temple in Jerusalem with the Antichrist sitting inside proclaiming himself god and demanding worship of himself from men. The means to all of this is the ultimate heresy which is Ecumenism. Ecumenism is the Great Apostasy.
EACH OF THE FOLLOWING HAD A DIVINE GOD KING TO RULE THEM. SIX OF THE FOLLOWING HAD SEVEN MOUNTAINS WHICH WERE SELECTED AS THE MAIN CENTERS OF THE DEVIL’S PAGAN RELIGION OF THAT AREA; ONE, JERUSALEM, HAD SEVEN MOUNTAINS DEDICATED TO THE WORSHIP OF THE TRUE GOD, BUT THEY CRUCIFIED HIM WHEN HE CAME IN THE FLESH (JESUS CHRIST). ONLY ONE, JERUSALEM, SAW THE FIRST ADVENT OF THE ONLY TRUE DIVINE GOD KING, THE BLESSED AND ONLY SOVEREIGN KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS JESUS CHRIST (THEY CRUCIFIED HIM BECAUSE HE ALLOWED IT FOR OUR SALVATION). ALL WILL SEE HIS SECOND ADVENT FROM HEAVEN WITH HIS MIGHTY ANGELS IN FLAMING FIRE TAKING VENGEANCE ON THOSE WHO KNOW NOT GOD (PAGANS) AND WHO DO NOT OBEY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST (FALSE CHRISTIANS).

THESE ABOVE WERE/ARE ALL PLACES OF IDOLATROUS WORSHIP OF FALSE GODS/GODDESSES AND ALL OF THE FALSE WORSHIP INVOLVED BLACK MAGIC AND SORCERY WHICH IS THE HALLMARK OF ALL PAGAN WORSHIP AND DIRECTLY VIOLATES DEUTERONOMY 18:10,11 AND IS DAMNED. FOR INSTANCE, ROME HAD ZEUS AND THE VIRGIN GODDESS OF BLACK MAGIC, FORTUNA OR TYCHE INCLUDING BY SYNCHRETISM HECATE, ISIS, MENE ETC., WORSHIPPED BY SORCERY, MAGICAL ENGRAVING, ENCHANTING TYING MAGIC SPELLS/KNOTS/CHARMS JOINED TO IDOLS OFFERING UNLAWFUL HUMAN AND ANIMAL SACRIFICES TO IDOLS AND THE FALSE GODS BEHIND THEM, ESPECIALLY FALSE PROPHECY: THE SIX ELEMENT DRAGON OUT OF THE MOUTH OF IT AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT, ‘O DIABOLOS HERMAPHRODITE BEAST OUT OF THE MOUTH OF IT AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT, THE FALSE PROPHET OF THE SATA-NAS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF IT AN UNCLEAN SPIRIT

ALL OF THIS IS, IN THE UNIVERSAL RECAPITULATION OF INIQUITY, SUMMED UP THE ANTICHRIST WHO SEEKS TO IMPRESS HIS MARK AND NAME AND NUMBER ON ALL MEN. THOSE MEN WHO TAKE THE MARK, NAME, NUMBER OF THE ANTICHRIST ARE DAMNED FOREVER. ECUMENISM IS THE MEANS BY WHICH THIS IS BROUGHT IN TO MEN. REJECT THE HERESY OF HERESIES WHICH IS ECUMENISM FOR IT IS ONLY THE ROAD TO ETERNAL DAMNATION.

THESE ARE LISTED ABOVE WITH THEIR SEVEN MOUNTAINS EACH.
