What is Apostasy?

 "Let no one in any way deceive you, for it [Jesus' return] will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction," (2 Thess. 2:3, NASB).

Apostasy means to fall away from the truth.  Therefore, an apostate is someone who has once believed and then rejected the truth of God.  Apostasy is a rebellion against God because it is a rebellion against truth.

Therefore, we must, as Christians, ask this question, "Is there an apostasy occurring in the Christian church today?"  Some would say no and others yes.  But, as we look for the arrival of the Antichrist, should we not also be looking for the arrival of apostasy?  And where else should we first look but in our own house for the Bible tells us that judgment will begin in the house of the Lord (1 Peter 4:17).
