The whole idea of a great apostasy means that Jesus was lying [or he was a crazy fool] when he said that he would be with HIS church until the end of the age. What say you?
Matt 28- 18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of allnations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
