The original 2-part series from The Threshing Floor Radio Show aired July 1 and July 7, 2009 is now combined into one audio file with the original notes.

The Religious Spirit Part 1

The Threshing Floor Radio Show-July 1, 2009-Randy Maugans
Part 1- Identifying the Religious Spirit

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” -2Timothy 3:1-5

The religious spirit is one of the most elusive concepts for most believers to understand and counter. It poses a very severe threat to both the host and the people it affects in the realm of faith.

Scripture, while not employing the exact term, does demonstrate the operation of this specialized spiritual infection and demonstrates HOW this spirit attempts to thwart the presentation of the Gospel. The religious spirit will pervert the WORD of God and interupt the work of the Holy Spirit by denying the work of Christ at the Cross through works, legalism, false utterances, and usurpation of Godly authority.

This spirit has destroyed churches, ruined marriages, caused suicides and even murder…yet it lurks undetected in the midst of every journey taken toward a saving faith in Christ. This show will help you identify this spirit with the goal to uprooting it…from your fellow believers, your fellowship, and from yourself.

The Religious Spirit Part 2

The Threshing Floor Radio Show-July 1, 2009-Randy Maugans
Part 2- Countering the Religious Spirit

“When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart.”-Matthew 13:19

Part 2 of “The Religious Spirit” study links the religious spirit to Judas and Apollyon, the Destroyer, and details the deep spiritual warfare surrounding this demonic force. We detail strategies for dealing with the spirit in the context of fellowship and ministering deliverance to such.

We also deal with ministering to the individual needs of the believers who have found their own strongholds in the religious system and want to find release from inner hurt, religious bondage, unforgiveness, and abuse.
