They Were Not Of Us

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
(1 John 2:18-19)

I found this article to be yet another example of the bitter fruit being brought forth by today's professing church. The seminaries and denominational pipelines are so compromised that many (most?) of the pastors they spew forth upon the barren, desolate landscape of modern Christianity have absolutely no foundation in or relationship with the Lord.

These are "stony ground hearers" who "made a decision" based on an emotional experience and have never truly known the Lord God Almighty. Certainly our Sovereign Creator and Judge will ensure that His little flock is provided with pastor-teachers who He has called and who are filled with the Holy Ghost, but as we know, "a little leaven leaveneth the whole loaf".

Lord grant your children the discernment to be workmen who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. Amen.
