I am writing this article to address a subject that I have often observed. It is the fact that if you do not get the leaven out of your church the leaven will become the leadership.The Bible teaches quite clearly that if you let the leaven in you will leaven the whole lump.
Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.
We see this often in the case of many "Christian" movements that have allowed a small error to exist in their churches and have not dealt with those issues. It then ends up metastasizing into worse and worse problems as time goes by.
for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

When God speaks to a man in his spirit, he understands with the mind the will of God, and can thus perform it with the full use of his faculties and in full assurance that he is doing what God expects of him. The occultist or spiritist must bypass the mind by shutting down his thinking processes in order to reach a passive state, at which point contact with a spirit is made. One way of doing this is with a mantra; that is, repeating the same word, word segment, or phrase over and over again. There is no such practice found in Scripture.
Every now and then something come along that presents our case in such a succinct and obvious way that we are compelled to share it with our readers with the hope it will leave no question as to how serious the present situation is with regard to Christianity in the Western world. Religious author Diana Butler Bass, who was one of the speakers at the recent Parliament of the World's Religions in Salt Lake City, has written a book titled Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening.

NAR false prophets, David Herzog and Chuck Pierce, are two of the featured speakers in the upcoming conference called "The Awakening." It will be held in mid-November in Phoenix, Arizona. The third man on the ticket might surprise Christians who attend popular Bible prophecy conferences hosted by teachers who stick to what the Bible teaches concerning end times. Paul McGuire, at first glance, seems out of his league to share the platform with men who major on gold dust and healing angels and speak from their own visions and imaginations while ignoring Scripture. But upon further investigation it becomes clear that he fits right in with the evil workers of the "New Apostolic Reformation."
If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10) Hostility towards those who hold fast to the Lord Jesus Christ and the literal teachings of the Bible has increased greatly. Biblical Christians endeavoring to stand in their faith have been shocked and saddened at the growing antagonism coming at them not only from the world but from within the professing church itself. This booklet will attempt to convey what Scripture tells us about remaining faithful in the midst of this spiritual opposition-what to expect and how to respond.
