11 Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12 For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern both good and evil.Hebrews 5:11-14 (LSB)

I posted this back on May 5th, 2020, however, last night I was doing research and ran across a video that claimed to identify the Antichrist. I watched it. It was well done and the man who had done the research and was making those claims was a Jewish Christian who had published a book about the subject and the video was an interview that included a great deal of his proof. Because I came to agree with his research, I also knew that if what he was claiming to be true was, in fact, true then the next thing we would be witnessing in the Church is the Great Falling away. That is why I am reposting this. Here is the link to the video.
I am convinced that a good way to understand apostasy and what causes one to abandon his or her religious faith is to think of it in the verb form of “to forget.” In the history of civilization, the battle between intellectual honesty and intellectual barbarity is one that has cycled back a forth for millennia. When intellectual honesty is on top, truth is seen as succinct and knowable and authoritative. When intellectual barbarity is on top, truth is seen as relative and completely unknowable. In case you weren’t sure, we are now in an intellectual barbarian stage in the 21st Century.
