Popular opinion has become doctrine in the modern Christian Church
By Craig C. White
Over the years I have watched what was once only somebody’s unsubstantiated speculation become accepted as indisputable doctrine in the Christian Church. I am old enough to remember when these theories were first expressed. Back then I thought that we all realized that they were just theories. It seems that over time the wise have died out and now we are left with folks who can’t discern the truth from fiction.
Out of the vapor of speculation and misunderstanding these theories have become written in stone. Without question or investigation these postulations have morphed into an unrecognizable alternate belief system. The truth has become so obfuscated that the Christian Church as a whole has completely overlooked the revealing of the Antichrist. Even when confronted with overwhelming evidence they refuse to recognize the obvious events of our time that scream “Jesus is coming!”
Pastors teach that nobody can know the day or hour of Christ’s return for the Rapture. Matthew chapter 24 is not about the Rapture at all. Matthew chapter 24 is all about the Jews in Jerusalem and Judea during the Tribulation period. Nobody will know the day or hour that the Antichrist will invade Jerusalem because it will be a surprise ambush. That’s why the Jews are instructed to watch! When the Antichrist invades Jerusalem then one Jew will be taken prisoner and the other left inside of Jerusalem to suffer through Jerusalem’s great Tribulation.
Pastors teach that the Antichrist will not be revealed until the Church is taken away in the Rapture. They say that the Rapture is the falling away in 2Thessalonians 2:4. They say that the Antichrist will sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is God after the Rapture. In fact the falling away is Satan’s fall from heaven. Satan has fallen and Turkish President Erdogan has revealed himself to be the Antichrist by sitting in the Hagia Sophia Cathedral exalting himself above Christ. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist. The Tribulation is free to begin.
Pastors say that the Antichrist will come from Europe. Every nation that the Bible lists that will be involved in attacking Israel is Islamic.
Pastors say that the next world empire will be a revived Roman Empire. There were seven world empires throughout history. According to Revelation 17:10 five world empires had fallen at the time of the disciple John, and the Roman Empire was in existence, and a seventh world empire had not yet come. Revelation 17:11 tells us that the eighth world empire will come out of the seventh. The only other world empire was the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire ended in 1923. A revived Ottoman Empire will be the end time empire that will oppress Israel. Turkish President Erdogan is feverishly working to revive the Ottoman Empire. Turkish President Erdogan is the Antichrist.
Pastors say that Magog in Ezekiel chapter 38 is Russia. Princes are set over provinces. Magog is the chief prince among the provinces of Turkey. Turkish President Erdogan will lead the Islamic nations into Israel.
Pastors say that everyone will be required to receive a microchip. The mark of the beast identifies the wearer with the next world empire. No world empire has been worldwide. The same Greek letters that spell 666 are the same Arabic letters that spell in the name of Allah. The next world empire will be Islamic. The Bismilah is the mark of the beast.
Pastors say that the Antichrist will be a homosexual. The Antichrist will not regard the desire of women. Turkish President Erdogan is seeking to remove Turkey from an international treaty on women’s rights. Erdogan wants to give husbands the legal right to murder their wives under Sharia law. The Antichrist will not regard women’s rights.
Pastors say that the Antichrist will be a counterfeit Jewish Messiah. They say that the Antichrist will be Jewish. They ask, how can Israel receive a Muslim as their Messiah? By Biblical definition an Antichrist is someone who denies the father and the son. Antichrist means against Christ. It does not mean instead of Christ. I know that many of you won’t believe me. The Antichrist will come out of the gentile nations. The Antichrist will not be Jewish. The Jews will not receive the Antichrist as their Messiah. Like every leader of every past world empire the Antichrist will conquer Israel and oppress the Jews in Jerusalem.
So many Christians hold to these popularized opinions as if they were doctrine. They refuse to weigh differing viewpoints. They will even ostracize others who don’t agree. Most Christians today are incapable of enduring sound doctrine.
