They can work with satan while they dress like the saints
They know god exists for the devil told them so

Bowie’s criticism of false piety actually sounds a lot like Biblical verse:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves — Matthew 7:15
