Do you know what the greatest challenge to the manifestation of the kingdom of heaven in the earth is? Have you ever wondered why many Christians start serving the Lord with great passion but soon lose their zeal becoming lukewarm? Do you know why some people do not want anything to do with the church? Confronting the spirit of religion goes behind the scenes in the body of Christ and exposes the counterfeit religious system that is at work, deceiving many sinners and saints. Confronting the spirit of religion is one of the most controversial books you will read. Author Ann Marie Alman takes you on a journey that will bring you face to face with the hypocrisy of the religious spirit today and reveals powerful truths as to how you can be free from its damaging effects.
