LEAVING CHRISTIANITY: The Unthinkable is Happening

I’m sure that many of you know about Joshua Harris, the former pastor  of Covenant Life Church in Maryland, has not only walked away from his ministry – but he has LEFT Christianity AND his wife of 21 years.

Joshua is now marching with LGBTQ parades.  This is shocking, brethren.  But this is a Sign of the End Times.

From Christianpost.com

The Maryland-based megachurch that I Kissed Dating Goodbye author Joshua Harris once led responded to the news of him leaving his faith and his wife, stating that it “hits home personally.”

“These updates are hard to hear. We love Josh and Shannon. For most of us, Josh isn’t just some distant public figure,” wrote Covenant Life Interim Senior Pastor Kevin Rogers in a letter to his congregation, which was posted online on Saturday by author and investigative journalist Julie Roys.

“He’s a beloved former pastor and friend. So this news isn’t just a lot to process theoretically. It hits home personally.”

Harris served as senior pastor at Covenant Life Church in Gaithersburg from 2004 until his resignation in 2015 in order to pursue graduate studies at Regent College in British Columbia.

Rogers explained that after learning about Harris’ separation from his wife and decision to leave Christianity, he read through the New Testament book 1 Timothy.

“Several times Paul mentions former Christian leaders ‘swerving from,’ ‘wandering from,’ or ‘making shipwreck’ of their faith. So while this is sad and confusing, it isn’t new,” sai Rogers.

“Paul says some had gone off course theologically. Others behaved in ways that violated Christian conscience. For others, it was greed. In every case, Paul’s hope was for redemption and restoration. That these leaders would develop ‘love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.’ (1 Tim 1:5) That should be our hope and prayer for Josh as well.”

Rogers called for the congregation to pray for Harris and also to ask “the God of all grace and power for fresh resolve in your own fight of faith.”

Harris wrote the best-selling 1997 book I Kissed Dating Goodbye, which rejected traditional dating and courtship, and also argued that any physical intimacy before marriage was sinful. source

The very first church I attended was Covenant Life in 1983, so this really hit me hard as well.  I never knew Joshua; back then the pastors were C.J. Mahaney and Larry Tomczak.  Through the years, Covenant Life has experienced many rough waters – even law suits concerning pedophilia.
As sad and shocking as this is, it is part of the signs of the end of times from Scripture:

“This know, that in the last days perilous times will 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).  (emphasis mine)

Did you see the Scripture “Without Natural Affection?” This has to do with the sin of homosexuality. The true church – the Remnant is being poisoned by the Social Justice False gospel. How does this happen? It is not as complex as one may imagine.

When a child of God, be it a pastor or a church member, begins to believe the doctrines of men (or better said “The doctrines of demons”) and does not compare these false doctrines with the Word of God; they no longer are standing on the solid rock of Jesus Christ and His Gospel.

They find themselves on shifting sand.  Not much of a foundation, is it?  And before long, the child of God is either deep into apostasy or walks away from the faith, as Joshua Harris has done. And in the case of Joshua Harris, he has been so deceived by the Social Justice false gospel, he even left his wife who he had been married to for 21 years.

“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21: 36).

“Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after STRANGE FLESH, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire”  (Jude 1:7).  (emphasis mine)

Brethren, when people say to you that homosexuality is not spoken of in the New Testament, point them to Scriptures as the ones above. “Strange Flesh” speaks of the unnatural relationship between men and men – also between women and women.  It also speaks of any sexual relationships outside the union of Biblical marriage.

A Borderless World 

The same people who are part of the Social Justice false gospel are also working furiously in helping the Globalists/Marxists to attain their dream of “No Borders.”  This is the  prerequisite of the One World Government.

Those who are “returning to Rome” from Evangelical circles are helping to usher in the inevitable One World Religion.”

Christians do not want to hear about Bible Prophecy

There are many Christians who just do not want to hear about the End Times and the Scriptures which speak of this time.  They would rather keep their heads in the sand and what comes – comes.

If the reader is in a church where the pastor does not speak of Bible Prophecy and you wish to stay at that church; you do have options.  You can study these end times Scriptures for yourself (an in depth study) and there are also wonderful Bible Prophecy teachers online. Of course, you can search for a church in which the whole Word of God is preached.

I have chosen one of those teachers (Pastor Brandon Holthaus) and will embed his last prophecy update here:

I pray that this article has served to wake up many Christians. We are in the end of the end times.

You MUST get your heads out of the sand and into the Word of God!

How Can I Be Saved?

Shalom b’Yeshua

MARANATHA!!

    They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. 1 John 2:19

    Also “Marty Sampson, Hillsong songwriter, is leaving the faith”…..

    I know I’m a piece of work. I’ve had/have my struggles “Throne in my flesh”. There are times I backslide and fall hard. As many times I’ve been in God’s woodshed, I would never turn from my faith, nor stop believing. We all must work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

    That’s why we MUST be in our bibles daily. It’s our food.
    “He humbled you and let you be hungry, and fed you with manna which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that He might make you understand that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the LORD. Deuteronomy 8:3

    Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35

    It appears to me that the shifting sand theology Sampson and Harris came from is the MAIN reason they “departed” I do pray that they repent if indeed they were “of us” if not, I pray they encounter the REAL Jesus

    Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test? 2 Corinthians 13:5

    Shalom,
    Brian

  2. “If your saved and you know it your life will surly show it…” lyrics of a Christian song. John said it like this; ” Whosoever abides in him sins not: whosoever sins has not seen him, neither known him.” 1 John 3:6. Men who turn like this, according to John, never really knew him from the start. 1 John 2:19, “they were not of us”, otherwise, “they would no doubt have continued with us:”

  3. The salvation by works pagan system of sin nature/original sin is the reason for this apostasy. Because when one is taught to believe that bad works create their need for Jesus, and that good works are why we can now know Jesus, we have not and can not know Him. Because “by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified”.

    These people along with so many other apostates that have already left, and are yet to leave, never came to a saving faith in Jesus. But, only a system of works that can only generate a form of morality. “A form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”. 2Tim.3:5.

    Because they were taught from day one the pagan merit system of original sin. And not Paul’s gospel of “by grace through faith” in which works have no part whatsoever. A covenant wherein the life that God has is freely given to those who believe in Him just as Jesus believed the Father while living as a man on earth. Gal.2:16.

    Until this is recognized and put into practice while witnessing to the lost we will continue to see more and more of this. And because this is the way most have witnessed, we ain’t seen nothing yet in regard to the apostasy that is already upon us. 2Thes.2:3.

    Those that discount… ignore… forget about the Old
    Testament with its prophecies, generally come up with their
    alternative plan of man sometimes labeled as… God’s dream…
    God’s dream for your life… a world peace plan. Along with
    those that buy into it… they’re making a fatal mistake. They
    ultimately deny the New Covenant—God’s will to redeem His
    chosen… the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

    The dynamics of the perpetual New Covenant made with the
    House of Israel and the House of Judah… and extended to
    the Church by the grace of God through Jesus Christ… are
    explained in the Old Testament—the New Testament
    expounds on and confirms them.

    Interesting article. One point I should make, is that the Remnant, or true Church, (the revived Apostolic Church) is not being poisoned by social justice folks….the Christian church is being poisoned by it, not the remnant who have left Christianity and are leaving the ‘religion’ behind and worshipping the Lord in spirit and truth. It’s all a part of the great falling away and tied to the churches of Revelation. Sardis breaks into two separate entities…Laodecea (modern Christianity) and Philadelphia, the remnant church without spot, blemish or wrinkle where the gates of Hades will not prevail.
    Again….interesting article for anyone who confesses Jesus as Lord and I pray they ask for discernment to be able to know the truth from the lie.
    God Bless.

    James 4:4
    You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
