“Let no one in any way deceive you, for it [Jesus' return] will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,” (2 Thess. 2:3, NASB).
Apostasy means to fall away from the truth. Therefore, an apostate is someone who has once believed and then rejected the truth of God. Apostasy is a rebellion against God because it is a rebellion against truth. In the Old Testament God warned the Jewish people about their idolatry and their lack of trust in Him. In the New Testament the epistles warn us about not falling away from the truth. Apostasy is a very real and dangerous threat.
The verse at the top of the page tells us that there will be an apostasy that is associated with the appearance of the Antichrist. Most Christians are looking for the arrival of the Antichrist, but very few are looking for “the apostasy” that must come first. The arrival of the Antichrist cannot occur until sufficient apostasy has happened in the world. The Antichrist, who is the ultimate of liars, cannot abide in a world where the truth of God’s word is taught. This is why the Bible says that the apostasy will come first and then the Antichrist will be revealed.

Notice that the dangerous thieves are wearing fine clothing.
Notice that the man is sleeping with a revolver in his hand.
I have heard that the very well to do victims have saferooms, vault rooms, to hide in for additional safety from intruders.

Lindsey, you want to make the lives of legitimate patriotic citizens, who obey the law as citizens, worse, by pressuring us to pay more taxes to subsidize outsiders. This additional taking of our money also takes more of our time and subjugates us to outsiders who do not respect us or our law.
Lindsey, what have you done to protect us from this?

One additional point. Satan is not a human or a generalized definition of evil among mankind. Satan is a spirit being, a fallen angel, the spirit of the anti Christ. Satan has already been defeated by Jesus for those who believe, but for those who do not believe, satan is the default god of the world for those who are of this world. Satan comes only to murder, steal and destroy. Satans oppression and harrassment includes sickness and disease. He is the father lf lies.
Only being born again in Christ can one resist satan and crush him under ones feet with the peace of God. This is part of holding fast to the good that Jesus has already purchased with His sacrifice and promised to those who know Him, The Word of God.

In addition, many of His benefits/works includes His Holy Spirit quickening or making alive the flesh that is dead (separated from God because of sin). His Holy Spirit working marvelously in the body of Christ by faith in His Word includes Divine healing and health.

Baby dedication is a commitment by parents who are in Christ, but baptizing or sprinkling in itself is not real because the baby is not using his or her will.
Babies do not even need baptizing because their names have not yet been blotted out of the book of Life. Being blotted out of the book(scrolls) of life occurs when one is aware of sin and there is no specfic age for this. They can then choose deliverance from sin by believing in the message of Christ in order to be a new Creation in Jesus the Christ. This being born again results in ones name being rewritten in the book(scolls) of Life used in the final judgement.
When one is a born again spirit, a son or daughter of God the Father, they are brethren of and joint heirs with Jesus. Lord of lords, and King of kings. But now their soul (mind , will, and emotions) has to be renewed to the mind of Christ in order to be overcomers in this life. This requires His God breathed written Word, the Bible, to be studied and revealed by His Holy Spirit. This why those of this world do not recognize His Word
because they do not have His Holy Spirit. It is only foolishness to them if they keep rejecting the preaching of Christ.

Geller only exposed the risk that already exists.
She exposed those who hate us, our liberty, and freedom.
There is nothing that will permanently appease them.

The “demonstators” (rioters) shoes look more expensive than what I buy.

It looks like those who are being subsidized by others via government give away programs rationalize their justification of persistent dependence on it by hating those who pay for it.

I think Nueces is being humorously sarcastic.

I don’t think insurance even covers riots.

Satan is not human, is not a nation, but is a fallen angel, originally named lucifer.
If the world looks bad, this cast down, separated from God spirit is the reason.
People still have to choose between right and wrong.

It takes more than believing in God.
Satan believes in / knows God and that does not keep him from rebelling.
Satan has been cast down and is soon to experience much worse.

Scar, your response is either insincere or irrational.
Your definition of “us” should include the middle east Christians if you are really a Christian.

Obviously, something else to blame “white privilege” for.
So what is the privilege in paying taxes to support all these people?
A liberal once told me that he has no problem with people getting freebies as long as they don't come to take what he has.

The irony is that she is more white than black.

Remember all the African blacks that hunted African blacks down in tribal warfare to take them out of their land and trade them to slave traders. Many blacks have ancestors that participated in this part of slavery.

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites.

If all the world loves you, you are not a Christian.
When the world hates Jesus, the world will really hate His disciples.
Which is in line with the Scripture, friendliness with the world is hostility towards God.
You see the wisdom of this world is devilish and carnal.

Some want to embrace and practice sin. Some want deliverance from it.
It is a choice. No one can deliver themselves from sin, but one can choose the Deliverer, Jesus.
As He says, “I set before you life or death, blessings or curses, choose Life that you may live.”
Glenn, I did not hear your audio on this, but based on what is written, you are wrong.
Practicing inclusivity is not a means to salvation.
I do recall the verse, “Do not be deceived, bad company corrupts good morals”.
Holiness does not rub off on others, but unholiness does.
