There is a new religion coming!
delusion means “a straying from orthodoxy or piety”
by Craig C. White
During the tribulation God will cause the rebellious to believe in a false religion. I think this new religion will encompass both Western and Eastern philosophies. We already have this sort of movement today.
2Th 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Because people have rejected God’s love for them, and have rejected God’s son sent to die for them (Joh 3:16), God will “send them strong delusion”. The word “delusion” means “a straying from orthodoxy or piety”. All people who have rejected the truth of salvation by Jesus’ blood will be persuaded of their own righteousness by another way. This of course is true of all false religions; but it reminds me mostly of “the emerging church”. The emerging church is an all-inclusive so called “Christian” movement that contains eastern philosophy and ritual; including yoga, meditation, and contemplative prayer as a means to personal holiness. It denounces bible teaching, and is being promoted by some of your favorite “Christian” leaders. Even without the influence of the miracle working antichrist, most people I know are eagerly awaiting this kind of religion (including most pastors). The fact that the “the emerging church” is on the move persuades me to think that Satan’s fall and the exposing of the antichrist is eminent. Don’t allow yourself to be deceived! I hope you believe the good news of salvation through Jesus’ blood shed for you.
