There is a passage in the New Testament that speaks of the "Great Falling Away" before Christ returns. I was always taught that evil people and sinners will "fall away" from belief in Christ at this time, but I have seen so much sin in my local church (5 years of adultery by the ministery, who was paid by me, and others), that I am very put off by it, and have not been back, even though I attended there since 1990. I know of other local churches with similar problems. I feel I have "fallen away" from their sin and hippocracy, but not from Christ. Does anyone else think that the "Great Falling away" will be the genuine believer who is sick of the false hippocrite believers that sit proudly in the Church pews?
