A Compromise: ‘The Church Must Change’「教會必須改變」其實是一種妥協“(2 Timothy 提摩太後書 4:3-4)

For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather round them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.


Behind many contemporary evangelistic strategies that claim the message being the same but the method changing only is the misinformed notion that as times change the church must change with them! Methods were believed be adapted by people’s demands such as ten-minute sermons, truth in capsule form, pictures and stories, etc. Appealing to common interests and chatter about current events so as to establish a common ground where the sinner can feel at home is false. Smoothing out the road for men and taking away the guilt and the embarrassment is evil and dangerous to the souls of men! That mentality which makes Sodom for Jerusalem and Hollywood for the Holy City is too gravely astray!


Prayer: God of Truth and Life, mankind by natural instinct does not want your revelation. People would rather hear what they want to hear. Left to ourselves, we would rather do it our way. Thank you that you change our heart in wonderful ways, giving us a desire for your word. Help us not to reject your truth believing in anything but to be faithful to your word. Amen.
