This Crosstalk featured a special message called, “Biblical Discernment in the Last Days”. This message was delivered at a VCY America rally in September of this year by Mike Gendron. For over 30 years Mike was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However, in 1981 after attending an apologetics seminar called, ‘Evidence for the Christian Faith’ the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.
Mike began by noting how many professing Christians in the 21st Century cannot discern the difference between a true and false gospel or even between a true and false Christ. They have become like the religious leaders in Christ’s Day who could identify weather patterns yet couldn’t discern truth from error.
Mike then pointed to the New Testament teachings of Paul to show listeners why there’s so little discernment in the church today. He referenced 2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Timothy 3:1-13 and then 1 Timothy 4:1-2.
He went on to note how the deception will be so bad and the light of the gospel will grow so dim that Jesus asked a question in Luke 18:8 “When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
In Matthew 24 Jesus indicated that there would be many signs signifying his return but the one he repeated 3 different times was that of a growing deception where false teachers, false Christs and false prophets will come to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Questions answered by Mike’s presentation include:
–What is discernment and why do we need it?
–How is Satan attacking the Christian faith?
–What are the causes for the decline of discernment within the body of Christ
–What must we do to live with discernment in these days of great deception?
