MILE MARKERS ON THE ROAD TO APOSTASY
DEPARTURES FROM THE BIBLICAL FAITH

A LOOK AT THE DIRECTION OF CHRISTIANITY
TOWARD THE FINAL ANTICHRIST RELIGION

Added from a previous discussion:
Apostasy in Christian churches; We are progressing toward the final GREAT apostasy of the Christian religion.
2 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, ... (Christian Leaders , pastors and teachers will be responsible for this.)

2 Timothy 4:3, 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; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

There remains a remnant of congregations where preaching remains biblically faithful, who have not submitted to false teachers that make merchandise of their congregations, and promise spirituality outside of the guidelines of the original apostolic doctrines. There are several end time scenarios that main line denominations are teaching. The differences pertain to the future of God’s kingdom on earth. Is there are future Kingdom? What does or will it look like? What will become of Israel and the Jews? Will the church go through the tribulation? Is there “one way to God the Father or many? Will all the religions unite having hope of fulfilling their understanding that “we are all God’s children? Each question above is dealt with by leading Christian leaders and theologians.


WHAT DID THE APOSTLES SAY WAS THE DUTY OF EVERY DISCIPLE?

Prove all things.
1 Thess. 5:21  Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. (the Bereans examined the Scripture.)
Test every spirit. 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
There are ‘red flags’ of discernment in light of Truth.
Flee from un bliblical, apostate leadership. 1 Timothy 6:11..
But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow  after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Contend for the Faith that was presented by Christ’s first apostles. Jude vs.3:  Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

SIGN POSTS THAT POINT TO A DEPARTURE FROM THE FAITH

  1. Departure from the idea of Scriptural Inerrancy

  2. The belief in tolerance and de-emphasis on the doctrine of “Judgment”

  3. Universalism; we of every religion are all are God’s children and all will be saved

  4. A broad road rather than a narrow road to salvation, we are all worthy of a heavenly reward.

  5. Emergent Christianity, New Age, Leaders include, Henry Nouwen, Eckhart Tolle, Brian McClaren, Tony Jones, Oprah Winfrey, Pope Francis (Big tent Christianity, the pope states that we all worship the same God and can fellowship with one another, Muslim, Catholic, Protestant) Chrislam, Rick Warren. To some degree or another they all depart from scripture seeking “spirituality” from any source.

  6. Dominion Theology and Kingdom Now theology; 7 Mountains to regain by “the church.” these include the mountains of global society; Media, Government, Education, Economy, Religion, Entertainment and Family. The church should conquer these areas of influence, this the key to taking the world for the kingdom of God

  7. The N. A. R. Super apostles and prophetic leadership. This is the super-spiritual arm of the Charismatic, Pentecostal church. It is characterized by its teachings on signs and wonders, “greater works”, glorious manifested powers of the spirit. It is a growing movement in which there is an emphasis on signs of God’s presence and manifested glory. Dreams and visions involve visits to heaven, visits with Jesus and the Father, Interviews and directives from angels. And .. extra biblical revelations that go beyond the teachings of the first apostles. Note that worship tends to point to “me messages.”

  8. The Antichrist church will be super spiritual with lying signs and wonders to fool if it were, even the elect.!!
    2 Thess.2: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: C.P. 12-10-2019
