Apostasy in the Church

One of the prophecies of the end times is apostasy in the Church.

In 1998 the Harris group took a poll of over 7,000 clergy in the U.S. and found the following percentages of clergymen denying the virgin birth:
19% of American Lutheran clergy
34% of American Baptist pastors
44% of Episcopalian priests
49% of Presbyterian ministers
60% of Methodist clergy
79% of Congregational pastors

Since, Christ will have a bride "without spot, wrinkle, or blemish", the Church will move on without these apostates. That would explain the rise in popularity of non-denominational church of the last 20 years. Truly Satan has gotten hold of the old line seminaries.
What does your preacher, pastor, minister believe?
If Jesus was not born of a Virgin then:
1) he is not the one promised to Adam and Eve that would crush the head of Satan. Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.
2) He would not Devine, having God as his Father, but just a man. That means he would not be sinless and could not serve as the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.
3) that in turn means he would be a liar.

Anything that takes away from the Deity of Jesus, the completed work of the cross, or his bodily the Resurrection is heresy.
If your spiritual leader is a heretic get rid of him or find another church! I the bowl of Satanic soup you can only sip the broth so long before you have to eat the meat!
