AuthorHouse, Jun 2, 2004 - Religion - 224 pages

Since the beginning of the Christian Church, two parallel churches have existed. There is the church organization, so often controlled by man, rather than by God and there is the true spiritual churchthe remnantthat walks in obedience with God regardless of the name over the door.

The Advent of The End-Time Church investigates the end-time church and its origins. There is a decaying organizational church but within it is a glorious church without spot or wrinkle that our Lord is coming back to claim.

It examines the strengths, weaknesses and practices of the church universal. It is a call for the body of Christ to band together with these strengths in these last days for there is one Lord and one church. The Christian must be vigilant against being seduced and fooled.

It is a warning to Gods people how they can be lulled to sleep by stagnant tradition and doctrines, which they believe are time-proven but many of which can be traced to seeds of Gentile paganism. Being grounded in contemporary events, it is a warning to wake up, not only to what is happening in society but also within the church.
