The church isn't what she used to be. The days in which "many will fall away" have come, it seems. While the crowds may be big, the substance and depth of the church is weak, perhaps more than at any other time in modern history.

What are some of the signs that your church may be drifting away from the Word? What are the "red flags" of warning? In this episode, Dr. Randy White will discuss these early indicators-

  • The use of many Bible translations
  • Lots of Bible talk but not much Bible knowledge
  • Hunger for experiencing the supernatural
  • Emphasis on feeling in music
  • Manipulative practices with music and lighting
  • Heavy emphasis on felt needs (marriage, family, finances, success, leadership)
  • Regular sermons and updates on "vision"

Join us for this inaugural episode of "Ask Dr. White." Please call in with your experiences and questions.
