Are Mormons Right on Total Apostasy of the Church?

by Steve Ray on November 14, 2015

train_wreckThe basis for Mormon theology is the concept of the Great Apostasy. Is the history of the Catholic Church a train wreck? Or, is the Mormon foundation a train wreck?

This theory states that the Church fell off the tracks and rolled down the hill as soon as it shot out of the first century. It was not restored until Joseph Smith came along in the 1800′s.

This is also held in some degree by the Seventh Day Adventists, the Baptists and other sects. Is there validity to this claim?

There is an excellent article on this topic written by Joe Heschmeyer, S.P. entitled Total Apostasy: the Big Issue Dividing Mormons & Catholics.


A New Creed for the Modern World

by Steve Ray on September 21, 2015

Everyone knows the ancient Christian creeds are outdated and passé. It is time we have a new creed that fits everyone in our brave new modern world. 

We believe that God is in all of us;
He has been created in our image

We believe that each one must find the truth that is right for him.
Reality will adapt accordingly.
The universe will readjust, history will alter.
We believe there is no absolute truth;
Except the truth that there is no absolute truth.

 We believe that after death comes The Nothing;
Confirmed by the dead who say and do nothing.

 We believe in Masters and Johnson.
What’s selected is average,
What is average is normal,
What is normal is good. 

We believe in total disarmament
and there are direct links between warfare and bloodshed.
Americans should beat their weapons into farm tools
The Muslims and Chinese will be sure to follow.

 We believe that man is essentially good,
It is only his behavior that lets him down.
This is the fault of society.
Society is the fault of the conditions.
Conditions are the fault of society.

 We believe in Planned Parenthood and government assistance,
We believe in abortion, infanticide and euthanasia
People are only real people when people say they are people.
The government needs to decide the cost and value of people.

 We believe we should all get along and love one another
as long as there’s no inconvenience or discomfort.

 We believe in the rejection of all creeds.


This is an interesting and insightful piece on Islam. There is no question it will continue to be the growing issue for America, Christians and the freedom of thought and rationality. 

A new Pew Research Center study that looks at the future of world religions and potential population growth around the globe found that the Muslim faith is rising at a faster rate than Christianity—with the possibility that Islam could equal Christianity as the largest world religion for the first time ever.

According to the study “The Future of World Religions: Population Growth Projections, 2010-2050,” “the religious profile of the world is rapidly changing, driven primarily by differences in fertility rates and the size of youth populations among the world’s major religions, as well as by people switching faiths. Over the next four decades, Christians will remain the largest religious group, but Islam will grow faster than any other major religion.”

Southern Evangelical Seminary President Dr. Richard Land said that while projections of the rise of Islam underscore the need for Christian apologetics in the United States, the Pew study doesn’t tell the full story.

Statistics to the right found here.

“This study is an interesting commentary on the rise of the Muslim faith, as well as the possible decline in the percentages of Christians—both around the world and in America,” Land said. “This research underscores the importance of being able to defend our faith by speaking rationally, intelligently, passionately and with grace about what we believe and why we believe it. At the same time, the study misses some important rumblings within the Islamic faith itself that may significantly change projections of strong growth.”

Indeed, according to Dr. Daniel Janosik, Director of Islamic Studies at SES, Islam is on the brink of both a physical and an academic implosion.

“Internally, we see a growing divide between Sunni and Shia Islam,” Janosik said. “But perhaps even more significant is an impending Quranic implosion. More and more, Muslims are realizing that the Quran does not have the earmarks of a revelation of God but, instead, is a man-made book. And with this realization is coming an exodus of Muslims from the Islamic faith. This academic implosion will have a much greater effect of turning Muslims away from Islam than recent criticisms of the Bible have had over the last several centuries—the reason being that we have been able to answer criticisms of the Bible and demonstrate its trustworthiness. Supporters of the Quran will be unable to do the same.”

Janosik said that the projections of the Pew study are based on present conditions, but these conditions are changing rapidly.

“For 1,400 years, Islam has been in existence. For 1,375 years, there were relatively few conversions to Christianity. In the last 20 years, however, there have been hundreds of thousands—perhaps millions—of Muslims converting to Christianity. Why? Because God is on the move and is doing something new.”…
