Worth Reading - Two Churches that Went Astray

Today I have decided to post a couple links to thought provoking items here for you to consider. I hope you find something that will be useful to you or to someone you know.

[Disclaimer on Bible versions of than the KJV and possibly some other content.]

Romans 16:17-18 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. 

This short letter offers some telling observations about the Southern Baptist Convention and its decline from biblical truth.


This article deals with some other issues of importance, but notice that some of the things this man points out can also be applied to other groups besides the one he is dealing with in the article. The abuse from the pulpit, greed for "spiritual gifts," and lording it over the flock of God is present in all denominations and independent groups. Beware.

Apostasy: Broken Lives and Shattered Faith Versus Those Who Resist

The closer we approach to the end of this age the more urgent it becomes to steadfastly resist the devil and his wiles and to earnestly contend for the faith.

1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Jude 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 


  1. Wonderful post. Apostasy in the churches is rampant. It isn't only in the SBC but in all Baptist churches, even the fundamental independent ones. It is getting harder and harder to find a Biblically sound church now days. We must stay alert and not follow the crowd. Amen to 1 Peter 5:8-9 and Jude 3.
    Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    Blessings, Carie D.
