"In her was found the blood of the prophets and of the holy ones." (Revelation 18:24)
Among "the disgusting things" that false religion bears responsibility for are the many wars that have resulted in hundreds of millions being "slaughtered on the earth." (Revelation 17:5; 18:24) Additional "disgusting things" include acts of pedophilia and other forms of sexual immorality committed by clergymen and tolerated by the church authorities. Is it any wonder that Jehovah God will soon rid the earth of false religion? (Revelation 18:8) True Christians, who know this, have an obligation to warn members of Babylon the Great. One way they do so is by distributing Bibles and related literature published by "the faithful and discreet slave." (Matthew 24:45) When individuals show an interest in the Bible's message, arrangements are made to help them by means of a Bible study. Hopefully, they will see the need to "flee out of the midst of Babylon" before it is too late.—Jeremiah 51:6; Revelation 18:4.
