As a fellow Berean, Hunt's ministry earnestly contends for the faith. He desires to join together tens of thousands of concerned believers who will not only be informed but who will act upon the Biblically sound information they provide. They believe we stand at a historic juncture no less significant than the Reformation itself. God has called us to earnestly contend for the faith and to rescue as many as possible from Satan's deception.
Many years ago, Dave Hunt amused me when he good naturedly quipped about his antagonists when they are exposed to public scrutiny for their aberrant teachings, ----- "When you throw rocks at a chicken coupe, the only ones likely doing the squawking will be the ones that are getting hit." The difference of course, is that unlike the ad hominum arguments of his detractors, Mr. Hunt always heavily supports his positions with copious footnotes, accurate quotes, followed with sound Biblical exegesis.
Dave Hunt asks: "Will you join me in earnestly contending for "the faith once for all delivered to the saints"? Let us heed the Berean call to search the Scriptures daily and to evaluate everything we read and hear by that standard! Let us love others enough to tell them the truth without compromise!" amen.
The premise of the book defines how and why the end times come about. On page 65 reads, "Why must the apostasy come first? Apparently it will be an integral part of the great deception and delusion that will sweep the entire world in preparation for the Antichrist's take-over."
After setting the stage, some startling info is given. For example, it is noted that the third President, John Taylor - a Mormon - "said that Christianity was 'hatched in hell' and 'a perfect pack of nonsense... The Devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work."
Yes, this book delves into the realm of the Freemasons, and other groups like the trilateral commission, showing the evolving of relationships between religion, economy, and the government.
To summarize, on page 213 the authors point out that they aren't accusing pastors quoted as purposely setting up the anti-christ, but that "Our concern has been to show that there is a growing pattern of seduction pointing in a particular direction prophesied in the Scriptures, and that none of us is immune from being deceived and deceiving others."
The book gets a little technical on the new age/positive confession movement, but it is necessary to the understanding of how mysticism and false spirituality has entered into the mainstream church.
RESPONSE TO OTHER REVIEWERS:
One reviewer writes above that the authors of this book seem more as "accuser of the brethren" than the comforter.Read more ›
the book is honest and right on target about psychology as well inner healing, positive mental attitude, and the rest. we should be making banquets for the crippled and lame rather than focusing on what happened when we were in the womb - dying to self in loving favor of others.
many christians today are innocent as doves, but seriously lacking in being wise as serpents. even though we are to enter the kingdom as little children, the christian walk is anything but a game. it requires discernment and (as in any war) an understanding of the enemy.
Must reading for the serious christian wanting to walk the narrow way. gutsy and well written. i highly reccommend it!
