Im not sure what you mean ......?
But your post does say''what is apostasy - explained..........well, since there is no answer to the Apostasy explained..I will give an explanation
from what I know of APOSTASY and what it means.....I will quote a few Fathers of the Early church and later.......to what True Apostasy is ....
"The Antichrist can come only as a result of universal Apostasy, that is,
the abjuration of the people from God and His paths,
when God's grace withdraw from the people.
(Archpriest Boris Molchanoff)
QUOTE////Never before on this earth has there been such a huge number of people who freely and easily, without any shame,
without any pangs of conscience
"call evil good,
and good evil; that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" (Isaiah 5:20). Archbishop Averky of Syracuse (of Blessed Memory)
QUOTE//Do not dare to raise your weak hand to stop the elemental tide of apostasy.
Avoid it, protect yourself from it,
and that is enough for you.
Get to know the spirit of the times, study it so you can avoid its influence whenever possible. St. Ignatii Brianchaninov
Hell's war plan with the Church is called the "Mystery of Iniquity" in the Holy Scriptures (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
The iniquity has been working for centuries and will have its culmination in the appearance of the Antichrist ( 2 Thessalonians 2:8).
The Antichrist can come only as a result of universal Apostasy, that is, the abjuration of the people from God and His paths, when God's grace will
withdraw from the people.
"And in the latter times of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark
sentences, shall stand up." (Daniel 8:23)
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders...." (2 Thessalonians 2:9)
In the prophecies of Patriarch Jacob about each of his sons becoming the progenitors of the tribes of Israel, the fate of Dan's ancestors is depicted
in such a way that can only be ascribed to the Antichrist. "Dan shall be a serpent on the way, an adder in the path..." (Genesis 49, 17)
In the prophecies of Ierenim: "From Dan himself...(Ierenim VIII,16)
In the prophecies of the Apocalypse, enumerating the remainder of all the tribes of Israel, marked by the Angel for salvation, the tribe of Dan is
absolutely excluded. (Revelations VII, 4-8).
ok.....there's more but Ill leave it at that...
Glory be to God
