The Century of The Great Falling Away

Updated on October 28, 2011


We live in a day when there are a lot of unanswered questions about the many religions and cults today like, where did they come from, who is the founder, why was it started and by who. The main question is: How do you know who is telling the truth and why should you and I believe them.

There are those who say Christianity is not the true religion because Jesus left his work undone so there has to be some one to complete his work. So how does one come to that conclusion, how does one determine the work that was not completed. What date did it stop, where does one start the new work? Can the parameters of this new work be documented by archeological studies or present day writings that stipulate the work was undone.

Some people believe that Christianity became corrupted so the founders of a new Christianity came about by some supposed revelation from God to start a new Christianity or a knock-off of it. Jesus Christ is the real founder of Christianity in about AD 30-33, in the Judean province of Palestine (Israel today), under the Roman Empire. Those that followed him were known as Christians.

" I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work." (John 9:4 KJV) "I have glorified thee (you) on the earth; I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." (John 17:4) "When Jesus, therefore, had recieved the vinegar, he said, It is finished; and bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. That tells me that that was it. No other work to be done. What was that work? Jesus came to seek and to save them that were lost and on their way to a burning hell. He paid an awful price to redeem them so that their sins may be forgiven and washed away for ever so that the may have eternal life.

Well I submit to you that it is no longer day. We are living in dark days. All one has to do is stand in the streets longer than necessary or tun on your radio and television set. Drugs, killings, rapes, alcoholism, gang wars and babies having babies is out of control. People will not endure sound teaching. They want to do what is right in their own eyes. They would not bat and eye to kill a law enforcement officer. Nobody has the right to tell them what to do.

If these new founders of their new religion is finishing Jesus' work, they are a dismal failure. Things are getting worse as we speak. The great falling away started in the 19th century. all one has to do is check the facts. In 1852-19 16 Charles Taze Russel founded the Jehovah's Witnesses. In 1805-1844 Joseph Smith founded Mormonism (Latter-day saints) In 1821-1881 James and Ellen G. White founded the Seventh-day Adventism. In 1821-1910 Mary Baker Edy founded The Christian Science (which by the way is neither Christian or science) In 1854-1948 Charles Filmore founded the Unity School of Christianity

No one person. Roots in 19th century Britain. Partly inspired by Margaret and Gerald Gardner the Wicca. Last and not least L.Ron Hubbard (1911 -1986) founded Scientology. So why did all these prophets and prophetess get dissatisfied with the original founder Jesus Christ and strike out on their own? The answer lies with in their own heart. They did not want to endure sound doctrine, they wanted to build their own kingdom by deceiving others with the promise that the God of Christianity is wrong. A loving God would not send people to Hell.

"But even if an angel form heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him/her eternally condemned! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally damned! (Galatians 1:-9) You cannot believe every guru that pops out of the woodwork proclaiming he has a better truth. There are many false prophets gone out into the world. Return to the true founder Jesus Christ.
