The inerrant, infallible living Word of God says everything more clearly and true than any man or woman could ever write or say. It is exceedingly clear if paying attention, we are living in the last of the last days. We are living in the times of The Great Falling Away. The great apostasy. The word “Christian” has become as polluted and watered down and meaningless presently as it ever has been in world history. We are witnessing events, actions never before witnessed in world history on such a large concerted accelerating scale. From the destruction and dismantling of the family to lies being accepted as truth, of the corruption and perversion of the faith, the massive influx of heretical false doctrines, and the myriad false teachers advancing those false doctrines. And the millions falling away. The tens of millions falling away…
EVERY known so-called “Christian denomination” either has or is permitting the evil of this world to enter in and become the dominating doctrine. THAT is NOT Christianity and we are to discern this wisely. To avoid such things, such people, such places. We are compelled to pay attention, know the Scriptures, be like a Berean, meditate and study upon the Word of God, putting on the whole armour in this escalating spiritual war. Being equipped. At the ready. Engaged in the battle. Fully armed — in the Word, in spiritual understanding, clear eyes, pure heart, a clear mind, in spirit — through and by the Spirit of God living within us.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 — King James Version
Evil in the last days
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 — King James Version
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
John 14:6 — English Standard Version
Jesus IS God. Jesus IS THE ONLY WAY TO SALVATION.
Signs of the End of the Age
As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”
Matthew 24:3-14 — English Standard Version
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20 — King James Version

ACP — A Crooked Path
Transgender Bishops & The Fall Of The Evangelical Lutheran Church In America
September 13, 2021

Rohr was the first transgender person to be ordained by the ELCA in 2006 and now makes “history”, the pro-lesbian, homosexual, bisexual, and transgender group Extraordinary Lutheran Ministries said. “We anticipate the day when all queer ministry leaders will be called to ministry settings without hindrance or barrier and will be affirmed in their God-given calls”.
According to this group, there are over 390 queer ministers in the ELCA at this point. The ELCA is known for its strong theological shift in the last 15 years towards an “inclusive” theology, except when it comes to Israel. Last year the Danish Bible Society, which is run by the Evangelical Lutheran Church, came under heavy fire for the Danish “translation” of the Bible that virtually wipes out “Israel” from the New Testament. In the Greek New Testament, the word “Israel” occurs more than 60 times. However, it is found only once in the new Danish version called Bibelen 2020. That’s right, just once. And that one occurrence is a direct quote from an Old Testament verse. Otherwise, “Israel” is gone. The reason for this, the society argues, is that Christian readers must not connect “Israel” in the New Testament with the nation of Israel today. The ELCA has long promoted the idea of “replacement theology”, also called supersessionism, which essentially teaches that the church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Adherents of replacement theology believe the Jews are no longer God’s chosen people, and God does not have specific future plans for the nation of Israel.
The presiding “bishop” of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, The Rev. Elizabeth Eaton, has also expressed her belief that although Hell may exist, it is entirely empty because “God doesn’t give up on those who reject Him.”
Two years ago, over 30,000 ELCA teenagers attended the ELCA’s national youth gathering. Popular ELCA pastor Nadia Bolz-Webber (who loves to swear during her sermons and tells her congregants that there is nothing wrong with porn) led the students to say after her “I renounce the lie that queerness is anything other than beauty”.
At the youth gathering an 11-year-old boy who thinks he is a girl was put on stage to promote transgenderism.
This past summer the ELCA in convention passed an interfaith resolution stating that we do not know what God thinks of non-Christian religions. A delegate got to the microphone to offer an amendment, saying that we do know because John 14:6 says that Jesus is the only way of salvation. His amendment was voted down by 97 percent.
Now the church is raising red flags with its promotion of praying by addressing God as “Mother” instead of Father on its official Facebook page as well as via Twitter:
“Mother God, you have fed us with the nourishment of your spiritual food. Raise us up into salvation and rid us of our bitterness, so that we may share the sweetness of your holy word with all the world,” the ELCA tweeted as part of their #Bread4theday series of Twitter posts.
The tweet has gotten a fair amount of negative attention. Hans Fiene, a conservative pastor who oversees the popular Lutheran Satire YouTube channel, responded with a simple message to people who still value Biblical literacy: “Leave the ELCA,” he succinctly replied when retweeting the ELCA post. Thankfully many have headed his call. The ELCA had over five million members when it was first launched in 1988. It currently has 3.3 million members and its decline has been accelerating as it continues to adopt many unbiblical practices.
The scriptures warn against associating with such people as fellow believers; “having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away….ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” 2 Timothy 3:5-7
