Insightful.

I think he has some good valid pointers.

A fair bit of speculation.

And of course a lode of rubbish, especially when he gets to the last couple of paragraphs.

He seems to be implying that many of the evangelical churches will cave in favour of same-sex marriage(I concur, after all scripture has forewarned us)and the roman catholic church won’t cave. No! If I could do some speculation of my own I think rome will be a great leader in same-sex marriage. ( "Pope Francis's comments about homosexuality in the priesthood, saying gay priests make up a significant segment of the Catholic clergy and deserve papal recognition.")

Shane Schaetzel asks where should people go as heresy becomes more rampant? He also seems to imply that roman catholic church is a safe zone; stick with her and your eternal life will be safe. He also frowns on the individual Christians, yet the New Testament message is mostly to individuals (“work out your own salvation with fear and trembling”). Scripture encourages small intimate groups that meet from house to house (“Where two or three are gathered I am in your midst”)

Individualism Christianity used in a kind of derogatory way by the lager umbrella holding franchised denominational companies with payed workers, they are very ones that are protecting their industry.

Individual Christians don’t carry and share in the rotten baggage of those apostatizing man made denominational churches, to support those is an investment in the “wicked work” of false teachers and would give public approval. 2 john 1; 10, 11

2001 April fools day was the day I decided to pull my family out of such places, it wasn’t easy especially the first year, but I won’t look back now. His Church is in the individuals, His Spirit teaches and guides us, and His Church comes with us in the field of the big wide world where we can share our faith.

The world is getting worse day by day and I don’t trouble myself with trivial issues like am I in the right denominational church and have I followed all of their protocols, and have I done enough. No! The sky could fall tomorrow, this world is temporal. My hope and faith is in Him and that gives me immense inner peace that is priceless.
