The Despised FEW


WHY Is it, "asked the minister of a popular denominational church, "if all the big church organizations are not right, that so FEW seem to know about it? All these big churches, including the majority of all professing Christians, could not be wrong."
   A great cigarette manufacturer used the same slogan. His advertisements assured us "Millions can't be wrong."
   One asked Jesus, "Lord, are there FEW that be saved?" Jesus replied: "Wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be that go in thereat: because strait (hard, difficult) is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it." (Mat. 7:13, 14).
   The REAL Christian walks the strait and narrow — the way of the FEW. It is popular, today, to "belong to a church." Many unscrupulous business men are members of popular churches, merely as a cloak and shield of respectability.
   As in Jesus' day, the majority "love the praise of men, more than the praise of God." (John 12:43). So they join a popular denomination where men have "a FORM of godliness, denying the POWER thereof." (II Tim. 3:1-5). "From such TURN AWAY!"
   The Bible distinctly foretells that the MAJORITY of churches would TURN AWAY from the TRUTH, "and shall be turned unto FABLES." (II Tim. 4:3-4). It is POPULAR to belong to a denominational church. You never will be persecuted, but respected, if you go along with them. But IF you truly FOLLOW JESUS, keeping all of His Father's Commandments, as HE kept them, instead of the traditions of MEN (read Mark 7:6-9, 13), you will be persecuted — and that BY those most sanctimonious in BABYLON and her HARLOT DAUGHTERS!
   Jesus said, "If they have persecuted me, they will persecute you." (John 15:20), and again, "ALL that will live godly in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION!" (II Tim. 3:13). Do YOU suffer persecution?
   Jesus repeatedly warned us of FALSE PROPHETS, showing they would be the popular leaders of THE MANY, not the few. He said it was THE MANY they would deceive.
   In the 17th of Revelation is revealed a GREAT church — a FALSE church, called a "Whore." All nations have been DECEIVED by her false teachings (Rev. 17:2; 18:3). She persecuted, martyred, the saints who form the TRUE church (Rev. 17:6).
   And daughter churches have come out of her — even tho in protest against some of her false doctrines, calling themselves "PROTESTANT," God's Word plainly calls them, the daughters, HARLOTS (v. 5)!
   It is thru Rome and her daughter denominations, together called "BABYLON" meaning "confusion," that the devil persecutes true Christians — the small "remnant" who "keep the Commandments of God" (Rev. 123:17). Are YOU in one of the popular denominations? Are YOU persecuted? Perhaps you have been honestly deceived. But God now says: "Come OUT of her, that ye receive not of her plagues! (Rev. 18:4). "Fear not, little flock."
