The HOW of the Falling Away?
"How the Church has fallen away from truth?" continued

NOTE:  in this continuation of Bible answers to the question,
"How has the church fallen away from truth", hopefully you are
beginning to see that, according to the Bible, it is more than
falling away from truth; for as II Timothy 4:3,4 alone make it
clear, it is falling away from also:  (1) sound doctrine; (2) away
from Christ driven and Spirit driven motivations, now purpose
driven by wants and personal desires; (3) away from ministers,
evangelists, and teachers of sound doctrine into the "itching
ears" kind.  In short away from the ALL Scripture and Bread
and Bible balanced life approaches, in favor of the
contemporary false prophets and savage wolve pastors that
have become extremely selective on what few Scriptures you
hear from them.  Never forget, that a false prophet, by the very
nature of a false prophet, has to be popular; and you churches
are the safest that have unknown pastors except in heaven and
in the hearts of a few!

{Below is the continuation and conclusion of "How the
Church has fallen away from truth?" question.}

15-6:  Depending on how serious you are to know Bible
truth on the HOW, the how of how have the local churches
and denominations fallen away, the how of how are
churches and denominations increasingly falling away as
we approach the END, then you will want to do further
Bible study in Jeremiah, the book of the Falling Away in the
Old Testament and in Hebrews, the book of the Falling
Away in the New Testament.  In those two books, you will
see step by step over a period of more than 40-80 years,
how the people of God developed “an evil heart of unbelief
in departing from the living God” (Hebrews 3:12).

1.  The “how” of the Falling away in Jeremiah.

“For My people have committed two evils:  they {there is
that THEY again} have forsaken Me, the fountain of living
waters, and hewn out cisterns--broken cisterns that can
hold no water.”  (Jeremiah 2:13)

NOTE:  A little sarcasm would say if you still struggle with
the HOW, is what part of THEY do you not understand?
Seriously however, it is so subtly the way time, our own
sinful spirits “that lusteth to envy” (James 4:5), and the
influences of the world and Satan wear down  God’s
people to increasingly drift away from God and the fountain
of living waters, to broken cisterns of salvation will can not
hold water, the two dead gods most obvious today are
“cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches”.  How
quickly the individual brain can create a god not the Father
of the Lord Jesus Christ.

A POSITIVE STEP:  If you have not completed the “Bible
Studies in Jeremiah” on this web site, you should.

2.  The “how” of the Falling away in Hebrews.  {By far the book
of Hebrews is the definitive book on the HOW of the falling
away.}

“Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart
of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one
another daily, while it is called ‘Today’, lest any of you be
hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”  (Hebrews 3:
12,13
)

Exhortation is a preventive measure against the falling away;
what better exhortation than the Word of God in the NT book
on the how and cure for the falling away, the book of Hebrews;

FALLING AWAY.

15-7:  Accept an apology for such a long answer, but the
Falling Away is the number one problem today for
Christians in the whole world, churches and
denominations; and once the reality of it is faced, the next
step is the question of HOW for which we can thank a
surfer of this web site; and recognizing the HOW, we can
then proceed into the Bible cures, both corrective and
preventative, daily exhortation.

1.  Exhortation by way of a balanced life of Bible and Bread.

2.  Exhortation by way of the ALL Scripture approach of thru
the Bible in 3 years.

Short NOTE:  You may want to also read about the "ALL
Scripture Movement and Approach".

Final NOTE:  If this does not fully answer your question, or if
you have thought of other questions; or want to dialog, you are
welcome to use the SUBMIT form below.  As Christians and
fellow laborers in the vineyard of the kingdom of Christ, we just
can not think about and discuss this major issue too much!  To
think about it and discuss it is to think about and discuss Bible;
for of the 10 major doctrines of the Bible, the Falling Away is
number 9.  {
