    Jesus said, "you see all these great buildings, not one stone will be left upon another"
    Disgusting child raping, slave making, blood shedding, religions of this world. God nor Christ told them to continue in our ancestor's sins, of building their own places of worship, ordaining their own leaders, and so on.
    THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN/GOD vs the kingdoms (religions) of humans.
    Baptized by Christ vs baptized by greedy money hungry humans
