Churches seldom start bad; they just seem to go bad. In our article – Seven Stages to Apostasy Truth Watch traces the degeneration from good church to bad church. If we are in the ‘end times’ ( we almost certainly are) we can expect many churches to have been infiltrated by false doctrines and false teachers. If you have concerns about your church then read through the seven stages and determine where your church lies on the continuum. If your sober reflection leads you to the conclusion your church is headed towards apostasy then try to do something about it. Admonish and teach – as it says in Colossians 3:16. Of course, don’t expect to be well received. You will have a battle on your hands. If your church is at Stage 7, LEAVE.
