There is much in the news today about pastors—almost all of it is bad.
The pastors being seen on television are making fools of themselves, not by preaching the gospel, but by ranting and raving about politics and being vulgar while doing it.
The sad thing is that many in society see these men and their churches as an example of what you find at most churches. This is just not true!
Quaker philosopher Elton Trueblood said, “I am as conscious as are most people of the inadequacies of the local church and though I am sure that the church is not the building…I can never forget that, apart from the poor little fellowships in such poor buildings, there isn’t a chance in the world that I would be enlisted in the cause of Christ.”
AMEN! Thank God for all the good churches, large and small across this great land!
