Last night, at about midnight, police made an arrest of a man almost sitting on our back door patio.  There were lights shining into our bedroom window and loud talking.  A lengthy conversation ensued. Our daughter had warned us about living in this neighborhood.  There is probably more crime in this area than in others.  But the price was right. We disregarded the warning.

Now many have warned us that The Church is being deceived and has accepted defiance toward God.  We should have seen this coming. It has happened from the days of Adam and Eve.  Some have chosen not to listen to God.  Some have chosen sin over righteousness.  Here are some horror stories about churches that have fallen into apostasy.

  Many years ago my parents moved to California and began attending a Presbyterian church. They were a little alarmed when the pastor wouldn't allow them to put up a Billy Graham poster about an upcoming event. Then the pastor began saying that the communion service was us offering our bread and wine to God. My dad wrote a letter to the pastor explaining that communion was remembering what Christ had done for us. The last straw came when the pastor forbade my dad to lead a Bible study. My dad formed a secret Bible study group. He was kicked off the Elder Board. When my two younger brothers began attending another church my parents followed them.

Then there was the pastor who, in place of a sermon, was reading stories about a little Irish village and all the residence and characters that lived in it.  There was no mention of Jesus or what He has done. The church shrunk from over 100 down to about 35. The elder board offered him a part time position, as they could no longer afford a full time spot. He decided to leave.  From what I hear he is now a pastor of an Episcopal church.

We are in End Times.  Revelation 22:11
Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
