Marching to the Apostasy

George Barna has collected more frightening data that just confirms that we are moving into the apostasy. In a survey at City University of New York he found that 14% of young Americans have no preference for any religious affiliation—this has doubled from a previous decade. He has found with contemporary churches that with the current pace, soon only 4% of teens will be Bible believers. This is in sharp contrast to 35% of Baby Boomers and 65% of the World War II generation.

And even among so-called "believers" in the younger generation, they consider their church teaching as irrelevant to their daily lives. They added that going to church was a "time waster." The sermons or "homilies" are bland, uninspiring, and not appealing to the highly educated.

This is what we would expect with what is happening in most churches. They either give out bland swill or try to pump up excitement with the hot-rock stuff! It is God Himself who is bringing about the judgment upon this nation, and upon the West.

Dispensationalism has always rightly taught from the Bible that each dispensation ended in failure, and this will be the case with the church dispensation. The Covenant guys are lying when they equate the church with the messianic kingdom! The church age is going to end with the seven-year tribulation before Christ returns to establish His throne of David upon the earth. The believers will be spared the tribulation and will be raptured away from the Day of the Lord! See 1 Thessalonians 4-5.

Get a life! Read your Bible!
