Weider Magazine Caught Using A Method Practiced By Cults To Further Lead You Into Satanism!
Muscle Missions first exposed this at the Arnold Classic. When famous bodybuilder and long-time Weider pupil Mike Katz first read our pamphlet and found out about this subtle technique, he literally froze in his tracks.
Many of you were probably shaking your head in disbelief...thinking, "How could the Weider magazines trick me like that?" We handed out hundreds of pamphlets at the Arnold Classic so that you could see the truth first-hand for yourself and so you could see just exactly what the Weider magazines were doing.
As you flip through the pages of Muscle & Fitness and Flex magazines you probably are not even aware of the brainwashing that is going on.
The Devil loves to tell half-truths to lead you into serving him. We believe the Weider magazines have been a platform for many years for Satan to do so.
Here is just one example of the technique I am referring to. It is called scripture twisting. You are witnessing one of the severest forms of scripture twisting you will ever see.
Take a look and I will explain. Here is a scan of a page from Flex Magazine, the February 1996 issue, page 34. The words read " AND THE LUST SHALL BE FIRST". At first glance, the subliminal mind probably sees it and accepts it as truth, being that many of us have probably heard the true context of the verse once or twice in our lives.
The correct interpretation is found in the Holy Bible and it reads:
So the last shall be first, and the first last: Matthew 20:16(a)(KJV)
Matthew 19:30 states this in a slightly different way, but with absolutely the same meaning. It reads: But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
We used the former verse in our pamphlets that we handed out at the Arnold Classic because it more closely matched Weider magazines twisted version, although, both Matthew 19:30 and Matthew 20:16(a) have the same meaning as we mentioned before.
Here is some commentary on the meaning of Matthew 19:30 from the Life Application Study Bible by Tyndale House Publishers:
Jesus turned the world's values upside down. Consider the most powerful or well-known people in our world - how many got where they are by being mild-tempered, self-effacing, and gentle? Not many! But in the life to come, the last will be first - if they got in last place by choosing to follow Jesus. Don't forfeit eternal rewards for temporary benefits. Be willing to make sacrifices now for greater rewards later. Be willing to accept man's disapproval for God's approval.
Weider magazines satanic twisted version falls more in line with a satanic verse found in The Satanic Bible, which reads:
Life is the great indulgence - death, the great abstinence. Therefore, make the most of life - HERE AND NOW! Chapter 4 Verse 1 (Emphasis Theirs)
I have actually shown the twisted version from the Weider magazine to those that are well studied in the Bible, and at first glance it actually deceived them, but only for a moment. But, a moment is all Satan would need to trick you into following him and taking the mark of the beast.
Very tricky indeed! High-ranking occultists and magicians of the satanic kind use this scripture twisting technique.
The Holy Bible tells us:
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. II Corinthians 11:14 (KJV)
Regarding those who preach something different than what the Holy Bible tells us, God's Word says:
...but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:7(b), 8 & 9 (KJV)
For those who are responsible for this scripture twisting, there is a curse upon them for doing so.
For you, the reader of this article, the best way for you to not be tricked by Satan and his agents is to know God's word, the Holy Bible. Read and study it daily.
