Apostasy is a subject largely neglected in most churches, and usually when it is discussed, it is not addressed accurately or with full understanding. In Part 5 of his sermon series, pastor Rod Reynolds discusses the apostasies that occurred in the early church during the time of the apostles and immediately following that era.
In Part 4 of his sermon series, pastor Rod Reynolds picks up the discussion with the apostasy among the Jews during the time of Antiochus Epiphanes in the second century BC. and leading up to the time of Jesus Christ.
Apostasy is a theme that is found throughout the Bible. So, to understand the Bible, you must understand the history of apostasy and rebellion against the Creator. Humanity has been in a state of rebellion against God since the time of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. In Part 3 of his sermon series, pastor Rod Reynolds continues with a discussion of the captivity of Israel and Judah to foreign nations as punishment for their persistent rebellion against God. Also examined in this sermon are the apostasies of Gentile nations, such as the Chaldean empire.
