Church in Freefall

The Bible warns that before the Lord’s return there
would be a great falling away which would open the door to usher
in the man of sin and the son of perdition. How far has the
"professing" church fallen? Read on and you decide!

  • On Sunday, February 12th 2006, 450 mainstream Churches held a
    massive celebration of Charles Darwin’s birthday! It
    involved programmes and sermons to emphasise Darwin’s
    theory of Evolution is compatible with faith, and that Christians
    have no need to choose between religion and science. The special
    day was called "Evolution Sunday" and involved Methodist,
    Lutheran, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Unitarian,
    Congregationalist, Church of Christ, Baptist and many more.
  • In Britain, an Anglican vicar is providing a twice-monthly
    service for Goths in his Parish, complete with rock music and
    black garments. The Vicar, Martin Ramshaw of Cambridge, says that
    he himself is a Goth. After the candle-lit service and prayers,
    they all go to a local Nightclub for an event called "The
    Calling." Let us be clear that Goth culture is in essence, an
    evil-spirit driven movement of non-conformists who dress in
    black, pierce their bodies, spike their hair, and are preoccupied
    with death and the macabre. It is in essence a variation of satan
    worship.
  • In Boston, Massachusetts, a Priest who calls himself Father
    Patrick Gray, holds special meetings called Theology on Tap at M
    J O’Connor’s Irish Pub. These study sessions are
    advertised with the slogans, "Meet new people, Eat great food,
    Think deep thoughts, Drink good beer."
  • The Rev. Desmond Tutu, archbishop and primate of Southern
    Africa, has weighed in with World Council of Churches leaders who
    seek to have the council transcend Christian boundaries. "After
    all," said Tutu, "God is not a Christian."


    According to Tutu, this act of Jesus Christ set in motion a unity
    that knows no boundaries. "Jesus, it appears, was quite serious
    when he said that God was our father and that we belonged all to
    one family, because in this family all, not some, are insiders.
    None is an outsider – black and white, yellow and red, rich
    and poor, educated and not educated, beautiful and not so
    beautiful, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, all
    belong, all are held in a divine embrace that will not let us go
    – all, for God has no enemies.

    Inter-religious dialogue is high on the priority list for this
    9th General Assembly of the WCC. During his opening remarks, Aram
    I, moderator of the WCC, urged delegates to think beyond the
    walls of the church and consider the possibility of "the hidden
    Christ" in other religious traditions. The moderator’s
    suggestion was seconded by Rowan Williams, archbishop of
    Canterbury, who urged the World Council of Churches to find new
    models through which Christians could see in the eyes of
    non-Christians "a reflection of what we see," even if they do not
    identify that vision in Christian terms.

    Throughout the assembly meeting, non-Christian spiritualists and
    those who practice "indigenous peoples" traditions have been
    provided seminar space and "ecumenical conversation"
    opportunities, in order for delegates to learn how they
    communicate with the spirit world and to engage them in
    inter-faith dialogues.
     

  • We leave the best (or worst) for last! The Roman Catholic
    Mother of Harlots, so named by Jesus Christ in Revelation 17, is
    showing her true colours. Monsignor Brandmuller, head of the
    Pontifical Committee for Historical Science has started a Judas
    Iscariot rehabilitation campaign! Vatican scholars have stated
    that Judas did nothing wrong and he was simply a disciple who was
    misunderstood. (Perhaps they should discover their Bibles and
    read Mark 14:21 which says, "….but woe to that man by whom
    the Son of Man is betrayed. It would have been good for that man
    if he had never been born.")
