Implosion: Can America Recover from Its Economic and Spiritual Challenges in Time? Author: Joel C. Rosenberg
America Recover from Its Economic and Spiritual Challenges in Time?
Author: Joel C. Rosenberg
With the rise of unemployment and more homes are heading to foreclosure. I believe most readers will buy this book because of the subtitle of this book.
Mr. Rosenberg is no friend of “replacement theology” (page 84) and he is definitely a firm believer of the “Secret Rapture Theology” (page 199) I’m quoting from Mr. Rosenberg book from (page 200) “Can such people fall on their knees the minute after the Rapture and receive Christ’s free gift of salvation for themselves? Absolutely, and they should. If they do, the Bible teaches that their sins will be instantly forgiven and their souls saved forever.”
My question to Mr. Rosenberg will be quoting directly from
Romans 10:14 “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” (ESV) If all the believers are gone then who will be on earth to preach the Gospel? How can unbelievers believe in Him of whom they have never heard?
If unbelievers do believe, they still cannot be saved because according to Mr. Rosenberg, “all you need is sincere faith” to be saved (page 204) not “saving faith.”
There two positive chapters that are worth reading are chapters 14 and 15 on the “Great Awakening” but I do wished that in chapter 15 the “Second Great Awakening” Mr. Rosenberg would do well to stop at “and at times controversial” on “The Rise of Charles G. Finney’s Life”
It’s a fair book…
