We are living in perilous times!
We are living in the midst of the greatest
religious apostasy ever known. Freewill,
works religion is the greatest religious
deception this world has ever known.
This man centered, man exalting, man
pleasing; God debasing, God hating
religion seems to engulf the entire world
and all religious sects. The world, for the
most part, has accepted the doctrines of
Any religion that is man centered; any religion
that has for its foundation man's will, man's
works, or man's rights; any religion that promotes
the honor, dignity, and pride of man; any religion
that pampers and cultivates self righteousness,
self esteem, and self worth is antichrist.
These are indeed perilous times!
"For a time is coming when people will no longer
listen to right teaching. They will follow their own
desires and will look for teachers who will tell them
whatever they want to hear. They will reject the
truth and follow strange myths." 2 Tim. 4:3-4
"And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom
the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his
mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance
with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of
counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in
every sort of evil that deceives those who are
perishing. They perish because they refused to
love the truth and so be saved. For this reason
God sends them a powerful delusion so that they
will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned
who have not believed the truth but have delighted
in wickedness." 2 Thes. 2:8-12
