The falling away is simply this....it's not individuals once saved who fall away, but the whole doctrine of salvation itself is falling away to lies and false gospels. We see this greatly now, people running after those like Osteen, these Mega Churches who obviously have tickled the ears of so many.
True Christian teaching will not have MEGA CHURCHES, ..so that in itself is a red flag.
Romans 11 tell us. There is an allotted time for the fulness of the Gentiles to COME IN. And when that time is up, then the Lord will fulfill other promises He has made.
The Lord KNOWS what He is doing and what time table He is on for HIS PURPOSE. Nothing we do will change that.

Exactly as THE LORD prophesied - it will happen in the last times that we are living and as we can see clearly here: Many that constantly mention The Scriptures are 'advocates' and defenders of those who are part of that and what THE LORD calls "The Harlot" = Babylonia - the one that have been persecuting Christians from the beginning of time, and even when it's wickedness have been exposed, people keep on bending under it's abominations: "The blind, leading the blind" . . .

Steven Many who were once Christians have abandoned their faith in Europe and here in the U.S. Papers have spoken of the increasing of nones. Those with no religion and many churches are losing members.
When the Antichrist appears and works miracles they not being taught from the Bible will fall for his lies.
That will include those of other religions.

So, how do you explain the explicit prophesy of the "great falling away from the faith?" One must have faith to begin with in order to fall away.

.....suffering the refinement of our faith" says THE LORD!
---Melody on 8/28/18
Amen to that. Melody, not many here understand that. You know too, I believe it's in Corinthians that we also suffer so that we can minister comfort to others who are suffering. People who have never suffered have no real compassion for those suffering.
OR we have the WOF false doctrine that makes people feel guilty if they are suffering telling them God is punishing them for something..OR that they don't have enough faith.
It's Gods refining tool....AMEN.
---kathr4453 on 8/28/18|
kathr4453:Amen for sharing the truth!
My own Mother - a devoted Christian and loved by many because of her sincere and giving heart - died in agony and during those last moments THE LORD gave her a vision of her first baby girl that went to be with THE LORD as an infant and smiling at her - and my Mother full of joy told the family: "My precious daughter, she is smiling at me and looks like and angel (standing in front of her bed, she no longer looked as a baby) and waiting for her - my Mother died under 'the joy of THE LORD' and entered Heaven - 'Free as the angels' - just as GOD'S WORD says - THE LORD'S People will become under HIS Eternal Kingdom: "Sufferings, the refinement of our faith" says THE LORD!

When I think of all the plagues , wars, etc over the last few thousand years, I don't see it only affected non- Christians . My nephew died of cancer from a polluted military base, now closed, along with many who got cancer who lived there. Look at all the folks in Flint who's children are damaged from those led pipes. Are you suggesting not a single one was a Christian?
We have lived in dangerous times for some time now, and I don't see anyone blaming God, or blaming God for not healing them.
The BOMB, just to name a few extras,
Etc etc I'm sure took the lives of those saved as well.

Scripture says "knowledge will increase" ....so is this the Question above? The avenue for that knowledge?
Steveng, you give the Lord so little credit for protecting His Own. The Holy Spirit in us is and has transformed our minds to have the mind of Christ in EVERY GENERATION regardless of what kind of worldly knowledge one has.
As far as health risks...we live with those every day....our food supply, untested perscription drugs now follows umpteen class action law suits, the smoke now from all the fires...horrible health risks. Now Trump says it's ok for industry to pollute our lakes and rivers again, rolling back all kinds of protections ..even allowing asbestos back into our lives, a known cancer maker.
---kathr4453 on 8/28/18|
Stevens: Many Christians throughout the beginning of time until the present, have gone through most painful trials and tribulations, but true committed ones - no matter what the trial - won't turn their backs on THE LORD . . . there are many right now going through that, but still firm on their faith and trusting in GOD'S MERCY AND GRACE - let's pray for ENDURANCE until the end!
---Melody on 8/27/18|
Besides, if we, as watchman or watchwoman, can save one person from falling away from the faith that would cover many of our own personal sins.
---Steveng on 8/26/18|
Melody, It's easier said (in this case, written) than done. "Christians" (both weak and non-christian "christians") will blame God for not healing whatever sickness they have - even after much prayer. Christians are taking the same road and the Hebrews. It would be nice if all christians were like Job.
---Steveng on 8/24/18|
Radiation or whatever the reasons for us to go through different sufferings, let's think and emphasize the remedy and in constant prayer before THE LORD to help us endure until the end!
"That no man should be moved by these afflictions: For yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto".
"I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you"."Peace I leave with you, My Peace I give unto you, not as the world give it, give I unto you: Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid". John 14: 18, 27.

Melody wrote: "... [radiation] might affect the body, nerves, mind, but in relation with 'the falling away from the faith? - can't be:..."
Put on your thinking cap, think outside of the box.
Allow me to open your eyes to one truth: "christians" will blame God for not healing a sickness after much praying and when the sickness get worse, as 5G undoubtedly will do, "christians will turn their backs on God.
---Steveng on 8/22/18|
Could the harmful effects from 5G play a part of the great falling away from the faith? ---Steveng on8/4/18
What GOD'S WORD says under Ezekiel: 33: 11 = "I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked" . . . but what does that relates to what you mentioned above on radiation affecting spirituality? - of course, all the so cynically exposed wickedness, lies, revolts, rebellion in all respects in the internet and different media, it's rapidly pushing the souls into perdition, but in reference to radiation, yes . . . it might affect the body, nerves, mind, but in relation with 'the falling away from the faith? - can't be: "In the world you shall have tribulations, but behold, I have conquered the world" . . .
---Melody on 8/22/18|
The Watchman's duty.
---Steveng on 8/22/18|
Wow!!! . . . how could anyone believe that 'the harmful effects of Radiation' could affect anyone's spirituality? . . . totally out of context and 'out of reasoning' :-))) - just as if we believed that by using an Air conditioner would make us 'spiritually cold' to our commitment unto THE LORD:-))) . . . under HIS MERCY, may THE LORD restore us in all respects, oh Yes - we all need that! :-))) "Laughter is the best medicine"!!! :-)))

Sorry, jerry, the only protection I need is from God himself, not from any worldly object.
---Steveng on 8/18/18|
Steve: Not to worry. Your tinfoil hat should protect you.
---jerry6593 on 8/8/18|
Radio frequency radiation does not discriminate against people based on their beliefs, so I don't know why you single out Christians in the topic.
If you are sincerely worried about this, please, by all means, throw away your phone, disconnect your internet, unplug your television, and go back to a simpler and happier 19th century life.
---StrongAxe on 8/5/18|
Could the harmful effects from 5G play a part of the great falling away from the faith?
Do some research about how the 5G frequencies are affecting people who are living in close proximity of 5G equipment. (firefighters in Sacramento CA are experiencing neurological damage, a community in London is experiencing a spike in insomnia, nosebleeds and miscarriages, etc.)
---Steveng on 8/4/18|
Why would such technology affect Christians more than, say, Hindus? Or less than mahometans?
Please explain, if you can.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
