Jacob Prasch examines this question by going to 1st Cor 10 which says:
1Co 10:1 For I would not, brethren, have you ignorant, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1Co 10:2 and were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Co 10:3 and did all eat the same spiritual food;
1Co 10:4 and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of a spiritual rock that followed them: and the rock was Christ.
1Co 10:5 Howbeit with most of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.
1Co 10:6 Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.
1Co 10:7 Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
1Co 10:8 Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.
1Co 10:9 Neither let us make trial of the Lord, as some of them made trial, and perished by the serpents.
1Co 10:10 Neither murmur ye, as some of them murmured, and perished by the destroyer.
1Co 10:11 Now these things happened unto them by way of example; and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages are come.
This passage directs us to look back at Israel and what actually happened to them after they crossed the Red Sea. Basically, Israel is an example of what will happen to the Church before Christ come again.
He outlines the current lust that is found within the Church and he illustrates scripturally the connection between idolatry and adultery.
One thing that is pivotal is that the Apostate Church persecutes those who stand up on the Truth of God’s word. Truth must be shared without waver as this demonstrates true biblical love. Biblical love is very different from secular PC love which doesn’t offend.
A bible verse that shows true agape love is found in Php 1:9…
Php 1:9 And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment,
Jacob notes that in the last days as apostasy grows there will be those who twist scripture and in doing so, they will call upon themselves their own destruction:
2Pe 3:16 as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.
2Pe 3:17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.
This is where the Apostate Church is heading; its destruction is inevitable!
He cover topics such as paedophilia in the Church, bowing down to iconic symbols, 5th century monastic worship, the dark ages, labyrinths, idolatry, the Church becoming a postmodern institution, Evangelical and Catholics together and the post modern emergent church.
One thing that he speaks about which is interesting is Baal worship and what does that mean exactly and how does it apply the the Apostate Church today?
