Continuing with snippets from those who are seeing apostasy in several movements within the evangelical church.
Many are saying that several current movements will combine together to form the last days apostate church. Some of these may include emergent, seeker-sensitive/purpose driven/Third Wave Charismatic, liberal Protestant, and Roman Catholic. Eastern Orthodox churches also might join, depending on the direction they take. Why would we think this? All of these movements have some things in common,
1. Downplaying the substitionary atonement of the cross and/or downplaying or actually denying this as the only means of salvation.
2. Christ the SAVIOR as the center of Christianity and his mediatorial work, NOT Jesus the good guy, good teacher alone.
3. New Age and Eastern religious influences accepted.
Here today's snippet concerning this New Age influence seen especially in completative spirituality,
Christianity experiences unprecedented attacks on its foundational truths. These attacks are motivated and coordinated by evil forces that are intent on deceiving all people as a prelude to revealing the Antichrist and physically establishing Satan’s kingdom on earth. Their main obstacle is biblical beliefs in the deity, atoning death, resurrection and second coming of Jesus Christ. As a result, attacks against evangelical Christianity are on the increase, being aimed at discrediting the canonical books of the Bible, and thus also the God and Saviour of the Bible.
