Boiling down the Great Apostasy

boilingI used to think the Great Apostasy (2Th 2.3) would be an explicitly heterodox, violent, and Christ-rejecting explosion of unbelief on the part of professing believers who up and walk out of the Church. But I rather expect now that it will be a principled, morally-defended, Christ-confessing, church-attending, hymn-singing, hands-raised abandonment of the Cross on the part of those walking in. The Great Apostasy won’t empty the Church. It will redefine what it means to remain in it.
