Overview

From the outset, the implications of Standing Firm through the Great Apostasy are terrifying. In fact, the most alarming aspect of this book is its utter plausibility. As Steve Gallagher leads his reader through a systematic and piercing examination of Scripture, the Great Apostasy emerges, not as a future event of which to be forewarned, but as the very essence of today’s postmodern Church.

In this thorough, and sometimes disquieting, investigation of the biblical predictions about the Great Apostasy, readers quickly come to realize what the Bible clearly reveals: there will be a Church within the Church during the end-times. Today, like tares in the wheat field, false adherents are growing up alongside true believers. But how will we know them? What is the hallmark of the Apostate Church? What are the distinguishing qualities of its rank and file confessors?

This is where Gallagher is at his best. By mining the treasure-laden writings of biblical scholars from past centuries and carefully examining the sacred Scriptures, he presents the reader with a classic portrait of the Apostate Church: a prevailing self-centeredness, widespread sensuality, and rebellion to authority. At first glance it seems unthinkable that such words could be attached to the lives of confessing Christians. But by the end it becomes all too clear that those who would cause “the way of the truth to be maligned” sit in our pews, sing in our choirs and stand in our pulpits.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
“Excellent. It is strong yet very scriptural and points to solutions and does not just dwell on the problem of apostasy. You lay an excellent foundation as to the roots of apostasy.” – Don Wilkerson, Founder Teen Challenge International

“Thousands of new, Christian books are published every year. Many are good, this one is excellent. In, ‘Standing Firm Through the Great Apostasy,’ Steve Gallagher holds up a brilliant mirror. The reader comes face to face with the condition of the church, the state of his own heart, and the holiness of Christ. If the author’s words are taken seriously, decisions will be made, changing lives for eternity.” – Steve Hill, Evangelist

“Christians are being deceived by a seductive, fashionable Christianity of cheap grace and easy believism. Steve Gallagher’s book is reminiscent of Charles Finney’s messages on revival. It is a timely clarion call for a return to the Biblical standard of Christian life and the God-ordained plan of redemption and revival.” – Dennis Lindsay, Christ for the Nations

“The audacity of Steve Gallagher to challenge the status quo of modern-day Christianity! Leave us alone! We enjoy our sin and selfish ways. Besides, we believe that no matter how we live our salvation is guaranteed. The trouble is that Gallagher presents irrefutable evidence to the contrary. Like any good medical doctor Steve tells the Church the truth about her condition. Every page of this book cries out the question: ‘What evidence do I have that I am a child of God?’” – David Ravenhill, Author and Itinerant Teacher

“It is rare indeed to hear such strong truth expressed with such great love. I picked up the manuscript to take a preliminary glance at it and found that I couldn’t put it down. Your riveting account of the cold state of the Church kept me wanting more and more of God with each chapter. I am convinced that you have expressed the very heart of God for this season.” – Jim Corbett, Author

“Anything apart from a deep work of repentance in my heart will burn like dry grass. Heed this challenging message from Standing Firm in the Great Apostasy; without this piece you’re just playing an empty religious game.” – James MacDonald, Walk in the Word
