Article by USA Today:
This article is a must read. It states some VERY telling facts that
reflect time sign of today's time. Last year, many Christian denominations warned of the world's end based
upon the economy's impending failure and the election of America's first African-American president. Some went as far as date-setting, predicting the return of Christ in the fall of '08.What those same Christians/denominations who made such proclamations are oblivious to; is they, themselves are the reflection of the time which we now reside. Christians within a divided Christianity, nowhere near
the passion, beliefs nor Spirit of the Christians who Saint Paul loved, taught and warned...
"For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears." Acts 20:29-31
As reflected in the article, the state of Christianity is that loud, bright, red alarm blaring continously, but because its been blaring for so long it has become a part of the daily routine, something everyone
works around, because the time has come...
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;" 2 Timothy 4:3
Apostasy is upon us...even more, it is encouraged as the popular belief amongst Christians is to "Find the church that's right for you."Meanwhile denominations of Christianity continue to ignore its own
detrimental state, looking down their noses at secular society, fingers wagging; impaling themselves on the planks that protrude from their eyes.How much more obvious must this apostasy become before church bench warmers question everything they have come to know as "Christian" in these times? If having a relationship with Christ without a "3rd party" interaction involved is impossible, as I've been repeatedly told, then the question becomes, what do YOU think having faith means?
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men
liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him
ask in faith, nothing wavering: for he who wavereth is like a wave of
the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that
he shall receive any thing of the Lord."
