What Happened to Christianity?

(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

… All they who are in Asia are turned away from me … (II Timothy 1:15).

When people learn the truth about Paul and the unique apostleship and message given to Him by the Lord Jesus Christ, they often ask questions like,

What happened to Christianity?

When did the church abandon Paul’s gospel?

How did we get into such a mess?

The real answer to these questions is not to be found in church history. The answer is found much earlier than that – in the writings of Paul, our Apostle – specifically in his second letter to Timothy:

All they which are in Asia are turned away from me (1:15).

Where does the believer who follows God fit in today’s religions? Nowhere!

To which denomination or man-made “church” does the believer belong? None!

Our Apostle’s last words are found in the book of II Timothy. It is here that we find our marching orders. Understanding this last letter of Paul is essential to knowing how to walk as,

A vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s use, and prepared unto every good work (II Timothy 2:21).

Members of Christ’s Body, “the Church” – the ecclesia, are God’s called out ones. II Timothy is our true story.
