MATTHEW 24: 3 - 8
JESUS CHRIST, in speaking of the "end times," said there

With the ever-increasing spiritual delusion there is a need for
guidance. To face these uncertain days, find a Christ-centered,
Bible-teaching, ministry-oriented church and get actively involved in
it. By doing so you will find Biblical guidance that has stood the test
of time and, not simply an intriguing fad, it will exhort you to belief
in and involvement in three things:
