 19 Signs You Are A Part Of The Great Falling Away - Steve Gallagher

In the New Testament, the Church in the last days will experience what the apostle Paul called the great falling away. Steve Gallagher put together a list of 19 signs that someone is a part of the great falling away.


19 Signs You Are A Part Of The Great Falling Away
1. Prayer is nonexistent or mechanical
2. You know the Word but you don’t live it
3. Earnest thoughts about eternal things are no longer regular or gripping in your life
4. Sins of the body and of the mind can be indulged in without an uproar in your conscience
5. Aspirations for Christ-like holiness have ceased to be dominate in your mind
6. The acquisition of money and goods take up a major part of your thinking
7. You can sing worship songs without really meaning what they express
8. You can hear eternal issues treated flippantly and not be moved to indignation
9. Your main concerns are of your temporal and earthly life
10. Conflicts with others are not a major concern to you
11. You no longer hunger for a deeper life in God
12. You don’t live with a full and grateful heart
13. You have little concern over and make little effort to meet the needs of others
14. You always see your level of spirituality in positive terms
15. You are more concerned about your pet doctrines than you are of people’s lives
16. Sports, recreation, and entertainment are a large and necessary part of your life
17. You are more concerned with your image than with the reality of your life with God
18. You are full of bitterness, or criticism, or pride, or covetousness, or lust
19. You have a head full of knowledge and heart that has grown cold to God

Brother Greg,

Thank you so much for sharing this!
I don't know about anyone else but some of these really hit home, making me aware of areas I'd let slip- I'm grateful for the rebuke and opportunity to repent.

Gonna bookmark this page for future reference~

I am guilty of about half of the items on that list. Am I going to hell?

Brother Greg, thank you for sharing this. 1 Corinthians 13 reminds me, if I do all theses things, and if I don't have love, it means nothing. Oh that Jesus would perfect us in His love, bringing us into unity, having tender mercies, truly dying to self.

Hi all
Ithink this post is a bit loaded in the assumption that the falling away is definitely the Church,
Also why stop at 19 why not 119 !

 Re:

Thanks Steve for writing this and Greg for posting. It spoke to me and I needed to go for a walk and seek God.

I believe this warning is for the church; those who are outside cannot fall from a faith they never professed.

 Re:

Has there been a time when most christians were guilty of a good number of these? If so, is it rather not symptomatic of general lukewarmness that has always gripped the church- vs symptomatic of a great falling away? For example, Tozer warned of these things 60 years or so ago.

 Re:

This is very good!!! And at the same time quite convicting. For I find myself practicing at least a good portion of if not all of 19 points.

Dear Jesus have mercy on me. And may I continually live for you.

Bro Blaine
