What is causing the falling away from God as predicted?

According to Pew Research, for a number of years many Americans no longer identify with any religion. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,” (NKJV)

Jude 1:24 “Now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into his glorious presence without a single fault.” (NIV)

If you are interested in learning about signs that predict what will occur before Jesus returns, falling away of Christians is a specific sign. Satan will influence a Christian to deny God anyway he can.

Scripture says there will be false prophets who will minister beliefs that are not consistent with the Bible. As a result, members are leaving churches by the thousands. Many churches no longer have enough members to continue.

One cause that we are aware, is the teaching of tolerance toward other religions. John 14:6 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Acts 4:12 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (NIV)

If we teach there is only one way to get to Heaven and that is by accepting Christ as our Savior, we will be labeled intolerant. In fact some call it hate speech. Corinthians 8:5–7 “For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat sacrificial food they think of it as having been sacrificed to a god, and since their conscience is weak, it is defiled.”

In the early church many leaders believed that to become a Christian one had to become a Jew. The apostles taught that was not necessary. Islamic mullahs call America the great Satan. This is because we do not believe as they do. Christianity challenges the Quran and their culture. They believe anyone that disagrees with what they believe must be of Satan.

I previous wrote a blog about selling one’s soul to the Devil. When we were still a Christian nation one of my required books to read for a public school literature class was “The Devil and Daniel Webster”. A farmer, Jabez Stone, had come upon hard times, probably similar to many today. He told his neighbors things were so bad that a man could sell his soul to the devil for better times. Shortly, a stranger, Mr. Scratch, (The Devil disguised) approached Mr. Stone and guaranteed him seven years of prosperity. At the end of those seven years Mr. Stone had to give his property to Mr. Scratch if his guarantee was fulfilled. Mr. Stone had seven unbelievable years and requested an extension of three more years. At the end of ten years Mr. Scratch wanted the property.

Farmer Stone hired Daniel Webster as his attorney. Before a judge and jury, selected by Mr. Scratch, the Devil, Daniel Webster gave such an elegant presentation that he convinced the jury and Mr. Stone won. The contract was destroyed and Mr. Stone kept his farm.

It was a lesson teaching what not to do when you feel desperate and without hope.

Can a nation sell its soul for safety and prosperity? I sometimes wonder if there aren’t politicians who would sell their souls to become elected. The reason I wonder is because that question was asked on TV of politicians running for the first time for congress. The question: “Do you think you can stand up to party leaders who want you to sell your soul for the good of the party”? What politicians would say: “No I would have to cave in”?

When I see and hear politicians say they are for open boarders and want to be like Europe I wonder if they have sold their soul. It is very evident that many Muslim men are immigrating to Europe so they can become a part of their liberal welfare system of Europe. We read daily of Christians being killed and women being raped. I have read where Muslim men believe it is not a sin to rape non-Muslim women. Could this happen in America?

To say or write this, I would be called intolerant and a raciest. Early Christians under the Roman government were required to worship the Emperor. Most refused to do so. Where do you stand? Do you accept all of this political correctness? Are we being unreasonable to have Christian standards and values and refuse to accept what we are being told we must do? Is it okay to say that our beliefs are exclusive and there is only one way to Heaven? Do you believe the constitution separates church and state? Therefore, there can be no Bibles or prayers in public schools. This was placed in the first amendment so that we could not accept a religion, like the Church of England. They did not want a specific denomination the nation’s only acceptable belief.

Do you still wonder why Christians are falling away and becoming agnostic? We have politicians who do not want a free society, a capitalistic economic system and citizens making their own decisions. Is their philosophy being inspired by God or Satan? If you cannot see this or understand what is happening, is it possible you are being deceived as the Bible predicts?

Writing these kinds of blogs, could it have caused me to have my first IRS audit in 35 years? Or, a major search engine not picking up my blogs anymore?
