During our 2017 Annual Conference, Pastor Steve Gallagher spoke on "The Spirt of the Fear of Yahweh." In it, he shared the following 19 warning signs of apostasy in the last days. May we prayerfully approach this self-examination and repent where necessary - relying on the grace and mercy of God.

  1. Prayer is either nonexistent or mechanical

  2. You know the Word but you don't really live it

  3. Earnest thoughts about eternal things are no longer regular and gripping

  4. Sins of the body and of the mind can be indulged in without an uproar in your conscience

  5. Aspirations for Christ-like holiness have ceased to be dominant in your mind

  6. The acquisition of money and goods takes up a major part of your thinking

  7. You can sing worship songs without really meaning what they express

  8. You can hear eternal issues treated flippantly and not be moved to indignation
