Baalim's religion uses human effort and power

( 51 ) De 23:5 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam "Bil`am"; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.

.. not hearken unto baalim ..

( 52 ) Jos 13:22 Balaam "Bil`am" also the son of Beor , the soothsayer , did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them. {soothsayer: or, diviner}

.. baalim ..

( 53 ) Jos 24:9 Then Balak the son of Zippor , king of Moab , arose and warred against Israel , and sent and called Balaam "Bil`am" the son of Beor to curse you:

.. and sent and called baalim ..

( 54 ) Jos 24:10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam "Bil`am"; therefore he blessed you still : so I delivered you out of his hand .

.. I would not hearken unto baalim ..

( 55 ) 1Ch 6:70 And out of the half tribe of Manasseh ; Aner with her suburbs , and Bileam "Bil`am" with her suburbs , for the family of the remnant of the sons of Kohath .

.. with her suburbs and baalim ..

( 56 ) Ne 13:2 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water , but hired Balaam "Bil`am" against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing .

.. with water but hired baalim ..

( 57 ) Mic 6:5 O my people , remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted , and what Balaam "Bil`am" the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal ; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD .

.. Moab consulted and what baalim ..

( 58 )

( 59 ) 2Pe 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way , and are gone astray , following the way of Balaam "Bil`am" the son of Bosor , who loved the wages of unrighteousness ;

.. following the way of baalim ..

( 60 ) Jude 1:11 Woe unto them ! for they have gone in the way of Cain , and ran greedily after the error of Balaam "Bil`am" for reward , and perished in the gainsaying of Core .

.. after the error of baalim .. Jude gives a major clue to Balaam's life with GOD and with Satan. It was half hearted in its attempt. Cain's religion was one that took shortcut in worship, a bending or rules here and there, a comprise with self exaltation. Jesus cannot stand half hearted religious worship of Him...such a religion is called lukewarm.

Re 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

One thing Balaam did before he slipped from history was to suggest a way to trip up Israel over to sinning with Balack..He proposed they invite the Israelites to a lust feast of song and dance with the daughters of Moab, and sexual indulgence worked a charm among the naive men of Israel. So Baal religion is a system of sexual indulgances, partying and dancing under the spell of intoxications. See Nu 24:14; 25:1; 31:16;
