The Falling Away


A Scary Sight

The Falling Away

~

2 Thessalonians 2:3


And the rise of multitudes of

False Teachers

church


The Bible tells us

that

shortly before

Jesus

comes back to earth,

there will be a

falling away.


Let no man deceive you by any means:

for that day shall not come,

except there come a

falling away first

2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV


Falling Away

means

Falling Away From Following the Bible

psalm-117

One of the most

visible signs

of the

end times

is the

falling away of

Christian preachers and Christian denominations.


The Bible tells us that people who call themselves

"Followers of Jesus Christ"

will be

falling away

from following the Bible.

~

They will not value the Words of God in the Bible.

This includes Old Testament and the New Testament.

The Bereans listened to Paul's teaching

and then checked with the Old Testament

to see if what he said matched up.

The Bible gives PRAISE to the Bereans.

Acts 17:10-12

bible-reading-bench

In the book of Revelation,

our resurrected Savior and Lord

Jesus Christ

praised the

Philadelphia church 

because

they kept His Word

and did not deny His Name.

-

Kept His Word means Obeyed His Word.

They sincerely tried to obey the Bible.

That pleases the Lord.

AND

Jesus was NOT happy

with 5 other churches listed.

Jesus told the church members that

they

MUST REPENT.


Jesus told each of the five that if they did not repent, there would be consequences. Jesus told the Church of Ephesus  in Revelation 2:5 that they must repent or
he was going to remove their lampstand.


It may or may not be related but...

Look

what happened

in Matthew 25

to the 5 foolish virgins -

their lamp went out and they were shut out.

The door was shut.

man-sad-door

Note that

Jesus

affirmed the truth of all the Old Testament.

Jesus

put his stamp of approval on the Old Testament.


One Example:

Matthew 5:17-19

 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

The following article has multitudes of examples.

Isaiah-Bible

Note:

Many preachers

like

Andy Stanley

no longer teach

that the Bible is true.

For example,

Andy says

there are myths in the Bible!

Andy twists Scriptures.

Andy wants to

"unhitch" which means throw out

the Old Testament.

Andy has become a

False Teacher.

I attended one of Andy Stanley's churches years ago. This hits home for me.

Again I say

Jesus

put his stamp of approval on the Old Testament.

https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/stewart_don/faq/bible-authoritative-word/question17-jesus-view-of-the-old-testament.cfm

Peter

never moved away from the Old Testament.

For example:

2 Peter 2:6

Also see this article for lots of examples...

https://www.wednesdayintheword.com/peteroldtestament/


Paul

wrote most of the New Testament.

Paul affirmed that

the Old Testament was vital and reliable

and the

basis for the New Testament.

See article below...

Next,

an excerpt from an article listed below.

https://www.ucg.org/bible-study-tools/booklets/the-new-covenant-does-it-abolish-gods-law/paul-regularly-used-the-old-testament-as-the-authority-for-his-teaching

It's obvious from

[what I just wrote in the previous paragraph]

that Paul used the Hebrew Scriptures

to support his teaching.

In fact, he constantly used the Old Testament

as the authority for his teaching!

What did Paul expressly say about those same Scriptures?

• In 2 Timothy 3:16-17 he writes:

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God

[literally 'God-breathed'],

and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof,

for correction,

for instruction in righteousness,

that the man of God may be complete,

thoroughly equipped for every good work."

The "Scripture" here,

known to Timothy since childhood

(2 Timothy 3:15),

could only have been the Old Testament

ed-bible

2 Timothy 4:3 TLB

says,

"For there is going to come a time

when people

won't listen to the truth

but will go around

looking for teachers

who will tell them just what they want to hear."

We have arrived.

Tuesday

1 Timothy 4:1 NKJV

says,

Now the Spirit expressly says

that in latter times

some will depart from the faith,

giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.

belt-of-truth-2

When the disciples asked Jesus about the signs of his return,

he said in Matthew 24,

"Do not be deceived...."

One sign of the end times is deception in the church.

The words of the Bible

are becoming

less and less important in churches today.

The Falling Away

is happening

at the national level or upper leadership

of all

the Protestant church denominations

and the Catholic church leadership.


ALL

denominations

are falling away -

each with their own bold or subtle way.

Be ALERT

Basically

the falling away 

is the

embracing of what the world says

instead of what the Bible says.


Therefore

whoever wants to be a

friend of the world

makes himself an enemy of God.

James 4:4 b NASB


We yield to God

or

we yield to the world.

Examples


Methodists

The Methodist denomination is falling apart.

This has been happening for years, but it is so pronounced now that news organizations are commenting.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/united-methodist-split-grows-more-contentious-georgia-conference-blocks-conservative-churches-exiting



Baptists

Southern Baptist Convention

is now following the world instead of the Bible.

https://disntr.com/2022/08/18/another-church-leaves-sbc-its-embarrassing-to-say-were-part-of-the-southern-baptist-convention/


Presbyterians

It is no secret that the Presbyterian Church in America is in turmoil.

https://apnews.com/article/religion-gay-rights-f3fc3ec9e1f39501495d227d5a0963f8 


A couple of years ago,

I read an article about a

Presbyterian pastor

who was fired by his congregation.

He was interviewed and said,

"Just because I don't believe in God anymore

is not a good reason to fire me."


fear-fearful-woman

Why is this happening?

Every young generation

has had thoughts of

"These Bible rules are old-fashioned and out-dated."

BUT

the difference is that

NOW

the older generation is following the young

instead of

standing strong

and

mentoring the young.


Today

older Christians

are afraid of losing relationship with their loved ones

and pastors are afraid of losing members

so they become lukewarm.

See what Jesus says about Lukewarm -

Revelation 3:15-16

Here is our page on lukewarm

Wednesday

Today the emphasis is

The Pope of

The Catholic Church.

Take note

 I am giving a lot of information

about the

Pope

because

he is

a key person

in forming the

One World Religion

and

One World Government

Below -

October 2023

Catholic Arch Bishop calling

the Pope a heretic and calling out his participation in

the Deep State, the Agenda 2030, the globalist elite,

the One - World Government, etc.

leaf-red

September 2019

The Pope is telling Catholics

that they are to obey the United Nations.

The U.N. is trying to form the one-world government.

The Pope is doing many things behind the scenes.

https://www.remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/articles/item/4603-pope-francis-our-duty-is-to-obey-the-united-nations

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-pope-plane-islands/pope-says-britain-should-obey-u-n-return-islands-including-u-s-base-idUSKCN1VV2IO


I am emphasizing his role in the

One World Religion.


October 2021

The Pope is now officially running toward

a one-world religion.

He wants all religions

to be seen as equal and all from God.

The Bible warned us about this.

https://www.breitbart.com/faith/2021/10/05/pope-francis-religions-all-different-ways-coming-god/

The Pope is very involved

in starting

the evil

one - world religion.


Pope Francis wants ALL religions -

whether they believe in

the Bible or not -

to unite and worship together.


Please hear me -

The Pope is working to

unite ALL religions not just Christian religions.


For example, August 2019

A multi-faith “higher committee” was announced this

week to implement the “Human Fraternity” document

signed by Pope Francis and a Grand Imam in

February that stated, among other things, that a

“pluralism and diversity” of religions

is “willed by God.” 

THAT is Shocking.


For example, on Sept. 25, 2015

the Pope led an interfaith service in New York city.

It was not with other Christians

but with people of other religions.


Exodus 20:3 tells us:

"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."

- -

The Bible calls us to love  - but not to unite.

green-bible

Today

I have given just a couple of examples

of how the

Pope is working to promote the evil end time agenda.


Thursday

Matthew 28:19

Jesus said

"Go into all the world and make disciples of all nations."

See our page on the Great Commission

Jesus-come-bruce

Today,

I will highlight

1.

The Pope going against evangelism

while promoting sin.

2.

Catholics are calling out the Pope's sinfulness.

obedience

1.

The Pope doesn't want people to try to covert sinners.

Pope says -

Catholics should not try to convert unbelievers.

https://www.dailyfetched.com/pope-warns-jesus-christ-followers-not-to-convert-nonbelievers-its-a-pagan-activity/?utm_source=wnd&utm_medium=wnd&utm_campaign=syndicated


The Jesus says in Mark 16:15

"Go into the world and preach the Gospel." 

But Pope Francis says -

No....

see the link below

http://redstatewatcher.com/aggregate.asp?id=156961


*** At that gathering

the Pope said: 

“The last thing I should do is to try to convince an

unbeliever. Never,” he said.

“The last thing I should do is speak.

I should live my faith with consistency. "



Another example

  from

December 10, 2015


The Pope says that Catholics

should not try to convert Jews

to accept Christ as Savior.

http://uk.reuters.com/article/us-pope-jews-idUKKBN0TT1BK20151210

The Pope has said that a good atheist

will go to heaven.

autumn-yellow-leaf

The Pope has shown a careless

and lackadaisical attitude

toward sin

sin-separate

His statements are so evil

that even a multitude of Catholics

including clergy are speaking out against him.

cross-crown-small

Example of Pope's words

The Pope said that

the most serious evils

are youth unemployment

and the

loneliness of the elderly.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-francis-the-most-serious-evils-are-youth-unemployment-and-the-loneline


The Bible has a different list of the most serious evils -

and those aren't on the list.

See 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

Purgatory


To my Catholic Friends -

The Bible does not talk of  "Purgatory."

Purgatory is not real.

Nevertheless,

I think everyone should be totally speechless

about the next story.


How can Catholics take seriously

a Pope

who says such outlandish things as the following?

Get time off of purgatory

if

you follow the Pope's twitter ! ! !

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/vatican-get-time-off-in-purgatory-by-following-pope-on-twitter/

or in December 2020

 https://christiannews.net/2020/12/16/vatican-offers-elimination-of-temporal-purgatory-punishment-for-past-sins-for-year-of-st-joseph

These two articles

show how flippantly the Pope considers sin and purgatory.


In centuries past,

the Pope and the Catholic church

made lots of money telling people

they could pay money and reduce time in purgatory.

Part 2 - Catholics are Rejecting the Pope


The Pope has said many alarming statements

opposing Bible Scriptures.


October 2019

The Pope is moving away from Christianity

and even Catholics are parting with the Pope.

For example, 

lifesitenews.com

is a

Catholic website that regularly stands up against

immorality in the leadership of the Catholic church.

Here is an article they wrote

Channeling is a New Age Occult Evil Practice.


https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/vatican-christmas-concert-features-indigenous-woman-teaching-audience-to-channel-mother-earth

Many Catholics are pulling their allegiance

away from the Pope.

October 5, 2023 - Pope appears to receive an idol.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/cindy-mccain-appears-to-present-pope-francis-with-pagan-idol-at-vatican-audience/?utm_source=featured_news&utm_campaign=usa

Cindy McCain presented the object to Francis one day after the anniversary of the infamous Pachamama ritual in the Vatican Gardens during the Amazon Synod on October 4, 2019,
in which the pope blessed one of the idolatrous South American statues.

More about Pachamama below

October 4, 2019

Also, many Catholics

are upset about the

naked

pagan idols

and pagan rituals

in the Amazon Synod. 

When asked if the rituals are pagan,

a Catholic man who came to the synod

and who actually grew up in this pagan culture

says,

"Yes, this ritual was a pagan ritual."

See the video on this page
starting at 8 minutes and going to 10 minutes.


https://youtu.be/bMc1DPfgFzw


Below at least 2 Catholics sneak in

and take the naked statues used in the pagan rituals

and throw them in the river.

The Pope reacts...

Hell

Many Catholics and Protestants were alarmed

in March 2018 when

Pope Francis said

there wasn't a hell...


What exactly did the Pope say? Here is the quote:

https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/pope-francis-there-no-hell

fall-border

The Pope was asked:

What about bad souls? Where are they punished?"

Pope Francis said,  

"They are not punished, 

those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and 

enter the rank of souls who contemplate him,

 but those who do not repent

and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear.

 There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls."



BUT

Jesus talked about a literal hell - OFTEN!

He warned us.

For example, Matthew 5:22.

---

Alert:

Protestant churches are beginning to join with the

Pope

in the One World Religion.


The video below includes

 Pope Francis speaking to a group

of Protestant church leaders.

The Pope starts speaking at right before 29 minutes.


Tony Palmer

- a spokesman for the Pope -

also speaks on the video.


Tony Palmer tells us that the leadership of two major

denominations have already openly joined with the pope.

(See video at 23 minutes - then at 25 minutes)


Tony tells us that  - now  - we need to work to eliminate the

Protestant denominations.

Tony  trivializes the differences in Protestants and Catholics.


Note: Protestants and Catholics have some differences

that are significant.


Protestants have major problems with

the Catholics praying to Mary

and other Catholic practices.


The Bible tells us to pray to God alone.

New Update to this page:

We now have a page about

praying to

Mary.

- -


God wants me to make sure that my particular church

is following the Scriptures  - no matter what

denomination.


Every denomination

is moving away from the Bible.


The Pope is actively trying to gain allegiance

from all people of all religions.


In the video below,

I don't let the

warmth of their voices

keep me from

carefully analyzing their agenda.


Tony Palmer - close friend & spokesman for the Pope -

was trying to persuade

 all Christians to unite under the Pope.


Protestants (and Catholics)

need to RESIST following

this anti-biblical Pope.

Galatians 1:8 warns us:


 But though we, or an angel from heaven,

preach any other gospel unto you than that

which we have preached unto you,

let him be accursed.


I caution you.

The Pope and his close personal friend Tony Palmer

have a warm and friendly tone

that can work to disarm any Scriptural and logical

opposition

that you would normally be aware of.


Tony Palmer turns Scripture upside down.

Tony Palmer tells us,

"Diversity is Divine and Division is diabolical."


The Bible says the opposite.

2 Corinthians 6:17

Tony places unity of all the churches together -
above all else.


But in Matthew 10:34-40

Jesus said

that if we follow HIM,

we will be at odds with others.

Jesus tells us that we have to follow him period.


Note: Tony Palmer was in an accident and died.

I  am  not  just  picking 

on  Pope  Francis.


Many Protestant churches

are falling away from the Words

of the Bible - just as much  - as the Pope.


For example - August 2021

ELCA Lutherans

She is the author of the book, Shameless, which insists that Christians have been obsessed with sexual purity, and instead, should just act on their impulses and do what they want to do — because it “feels right.”
It was then that she called on women to send her their “purity rings” so that she can have them melted down and formed into a sculpture of female sex organs and display them in rank idolatry.

https://reformationcharlotte.org/2021/08/26/elca-installs-golden-female-genitalia-statue-woman-as-pastor-of-public-witness/

Look at the Episcopal Church

The article below contains MANY troubling facts.

https://dailycaller.com/2019/06/28/gay-priest-god-woman/


The Methodist and Baptist denominations are continually

watering down the Bible.


However, it is Pope Francis

who is creating and leading the

One - World Religion.

- -


The words of the Bible

are becoming

less and less important in churches today.


See - 1 Timothy 4:1,  2 Thessalonians 2:1-4


Hopefully you can find a church

that will not be swayed by their national leadership

or anything else except the words of the Bible.
