In a culture that is determined to weaken the truth of God’s Word or even remove its influence from the public setting, we are faced with a more dangerous problem. There is a present danger that some in the church “will not endure sound teaching” (2 Timothy 4:3). It is one thing for the world to refuse “truth”; that should be expected. But when those in the church refuse sound teaching and “accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth” (4:3-4), then it is possible the Lord, the Head of the church “will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place” (Revelation 2:5).
I am very concerned that we not be among their number. God’s plan and purpose for His glory and the church will never fail, but my deep care for the church drives me to warn those who are satisfied and complacent with where they are. Paul was never complacent as proven by his attitude in Philippians 3. What then must we do to correct a state of decline and stagnancy in the church?
“REPENT” and “hear what the Spirit says to the churches!” (Revelation 2:5, 7).
