Does the New Testament predict an apostasy that would occur after the apostolic age? Yes! It absolutely does. It seems like many have forgotten, or never known, that biblical fact. There was indeed a great apostasy that occurred in the latter part of the first century and continued well into the future – and continues even today. So, why is it so hard for people to accept that the majority of what is wrongly called Christianity today is actually the product of that predicted apostasy?
