I have no doubt that the temporal realm is in its final years before the Second Coming of Christ. There are indications that the world system is prepared for the Antichrist’s revealing. Concurrently, much is occurring and changing in the religious sector that indicates the emergence of the False Prophet. In order to clearly portray what is getting ready to occur it is helpful to present the general state of Christianity.
The State of Christianity
Christianity, the religion, has substantially come under the spells of diabolical and clever users and abusers. Subsequently, the lack of biblical character disqualifies it as a universal body of people devoted to following Christ. Reduced to a mere title symbolizing what’s left of the 2000-year-old religion, it is in imminent danger of collapsing from the weight of its apostasy. As a grass-covered layer of topsoil over a massive sinkhole, shallow roots are all that hold its facade together. Why are professing Christians so unaware of the impending catastrophe? Why are the ones who are aware so disinterested? Their minds are closed by apathy, and their ears and eyes are dull with denial.
It appears most professing Christians love religion more than a relationship with God, and they love doctrines more than truth. Furthermore, the flames of their love became dying embers before the heretics and hirelings arrived. Their present complacency, apathy, and lethargy sustain heretics and hirelings in their positions. Consequently, numerous branches of heresy flow like dirty water from a broken pipe. The sum of it all has produced an unbridled spirit in professing Christians that has spread like a virus.
A Broken Moral Compass
Consequently, the spiritual atmosphere is turning loathsome. Discarding moral restraints unleashed scores of ministers to commit sexual sins, including sex crimes against children, and other great wickedness. For every vile incident revealed, it is likely many more episodes of that same unrestrained evil remain hidden. Mark my words—the revelations about the profusion of sexual abuse, pedophilia, adultery, pornography, and other wickedness in churches and by ministers, will increase.
According to a recent Barna report, “Most pastors (57%) and youth pastors (64%) admit they have struggled with porn, either currently or in the past.” Approximately 2/3 of professing Christian men view porn. Furthermore, Barna reported. “Overall, 21 percent of youth pastors and 14 percent of pastors admit they currently struggle with using porn.”
It is indicative that the moral compass guiding Christians for eons is broken. However, very few high profile leaders are risking their reputations and positions to stand against the apostasy. They are very busy trying to remain relevant. Relevancy in a time of apostasy is becoming a facilitator of it. Woe to the sinfully deaf and dumb condition of the body of Christianity! Who can unstop its ears, heal its scaly eyes, and restore its dead compassion?
The failure to stem the invasion of wickedness in Christianity is symptomatic of a great, spiritual, anemia. How can Christianity not implode? I must add that putting great effort behind a political leader to ensure security from secular danger will not prevent Christianity from imploding. Political security is no better than the thick cloud of apathy covering a great valley of prayerless, non-committed, professing Christians. The piercing and alarming truth is that Christianity is being prepared to collapse in confusion and fear-driven acquiescence to the False Prophet. It will produce little or no opposition on the day that the Man of Sin arrives. Continue reading
