Four religious signs of Jesus' return

1. People will be led astray.
Deconstruction (Alisa Childers)

The systematic dismantling of the core beliefs you grew up with and they are discarded—many deconstruct all the way to atheism or agnosticism, or progressive Christianity.
By calling ourselves progressive Christians we mean that we are Christians who…

1. Believe that following the path and teachings of Jesus can lead to an awareness and experience of the sacred and the oneness and unity of all life.

2. Affirm that the teachings of Jesus provide but one of many ways to experience the sacredness and oneness of life, and that we can draw from diverse sources of wisdom in our spiritual journey.

3. Seek community that is inclusive of ALL people, including but not limited to:

•Conventional Christians And questioning skeptics
•Believers and agnostics
•Women and men
•Those of all sexual orientation and gender identities
Those of all classes and abilities

4. Know that the way we behave towards one another is the fullest expression of what we believe

5. Find Grace in the search for understanding and believe there is more value in questioning than in absolutes.

6. Strive for peace and justice among all people.

7. Strive to protect and restore the integrity of our earth; and

8. Commit to a path of lifelong learning, compassion, and selfless love.
