Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in
faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. That good thing which was
committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
2 Timothy 1:13 - 14
There is a great decision that every denomination has to make sometime
in the development of its history. Every church also has to make it
either at its beginning or a little later- -usually a little later.
Eventually every board is faced with the decision and has to keep
making it, not by one great decision made once for all, but by a
series of little decisions adding up to one great big one. Every
pastor has to face it and keep renewing his decision on his knees
before God. Finally, every church member, every evangelist, every
Christian has to make this decision. It is a matter of judgment upon
that denomination, that church, that board, that pastor, that leader
and upon their descendants and spiritual children.
The question is this: Shall we modify the truth in doctrine or
practice to gain more adherents? Or shall we preserve the truth in
doctrine and practice and take the consequences ? ? ?
A commitment to preserving the truth and practice of the church is
what separates me from a great many people who are perhaps far
greater than I am in ability. This is my conviction, long held and
deeply confirmed by a knowledge of the fact that modern gospel
churches, almost without exception, have decided to modify the truth
and practice a little in order to have more adherents and get along
"We're under constant pressure to have more adherents, more members,
more numbers, Lord. The emphasis today is on growth, bigness, size,
and success. God help me never to modify or compromise to achieve
that, but to tenaciously hold fast to my core beliefs and

Folks if you are in a "Dr Feel Good" church you are in
the wrong church. A church that waters down the word
of God and tickles your ears can lead you the wrong way.
