Me, too..I was always taught that in the "last days" before Christ returns, the true church will be forced, through persecution, to go underground. What we are seeing is a drastic transformation within the church by those who distort the central core issues set forth in the Scripture about how we should live. I believe that severe consequences in response to the widespread breaking of the 10 Commandments are built into creation and, in my opinion, those will come about. All we have to do is read the Old Testament to discover what happens to a nation which turns away from God...

Yep, that's right. More than that, J. Vernon McGee (who's not exactly known as a kook) pointed out that when that End Times persecution does come, it'll be the churches leading the charge.

Still, there are a few good ones left. If you can find one, great. If not, a home Bible study is fully capable of becoming your congregation.
