9781575580463: Today's Apostasy : How Decisionism is Destroying Our Churches

Many have noticed that the spiritual condition of this generation is comparable to the days of Noah, but few have understood how such apostasy came about. How did so many denominations become apostate in the last hundred years? Why do seventy-four percent of our people claim to be saved without this having a more positive effect on our crumbling society? Why do so many preachers commit immorality? Why do our churches seem unable to hold on to most of their young people? Why no major revival for over ninety years? This book gives an answer to those questions.

About the Author:

R.L. Hymers, Jr. is a graduate of the California State University at Los Angeles (B.A.), Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, Southern Baptist (M.Div.),San Francisco Theological Seminary, United Presbyterian (D.Min.), and Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary, Baptist Bible Fellowship (Th.D.). He and his wife, Ileana, are the parents of twin sons, Robert Leslie III and John Wesley. Dr. Hymers worked with Southern Baptist churches for many years. He became a fundamentalist by reading the books and sermons of the late Dr. John R. Rice. Dr. Hymers is the founding pastor of the Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle, the only Baptist church in the civic center of Los Angeles. Known for his strong stand for biblical inerrancy and inner-city evangelism, Dr. Hymers is an unashamed old-time fundamentalist, who earnestly contends for the faith in the tradition of J. Frank Norris, John R. Rice, Bob Jones, Sr., and "Fighting Bob" Shuler. He has been in the ministry for over forty years.

Christopher Cagan is a graduate in mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles (B.A., M.A., Ph.D.). He was a teaching assistant in mathematics at UCLA for several years prior to his conversion. He is also a graduate of Talbot Theological Seminary (M.Div.) and the Claremont Graduate School (M.A., Ph.D.). His second Ph.D. dissertation was written on the subject of apologetics. He is a published expert in the field of stock market analysis, and is currently employed as a statistical analyst. Dr. Cagan's wife, Judith, is a medical doctor. They are the parents of two boys, John Samuel and David. Dr. Cagan is the director of education at the Fundamentalist Baptist Tabernacle. He has been Dr. Hymers' associate for more than twenty years.
