Survey Reveals a ‘Pulpit Problem’

Posted on June 26, 2008. Filed under: Conservatives, Culture, Religion |

I’m not surprised at all by this. More and more churches are moving AWAY from teaching the real gospel of the Scriptures and TOWARDS teaching a social gospel. They are more interested in how they look to others than in preaching the truth. They want to be seen as ‘cool’ and ‘relevant’ more than they want to speak the truth. They want to be seen as inclusive rather than being seen as exclusive by teaching that those who don’t trust Christ as their personal Savior will go to hell. Sad.

Does survey reveal a ‘pulpit problem’?
Allie Martin – OneNewsNow – 6/25/2008

A recent survey found that many evangelical Christians in the U.S. don’t believe there is only one way to heaven — a finding that the president of Vision America Action says shows a lack of biblical preaching from the pulpits.
The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life conducted the study, which reports that 57 percent of church-attending Evangelicals surveyed believe many religions can lead to eternal life. (See earlier article)

Dr. Rick Scarborough — president of Vision America Action – elaborates on his belief that the survey’s results point to a problem in the pulpit. “In today’s pluralistic society, where anything goes … [a] growing number of those who fill our pews are reflecting what they’ve been hearing,” he details. “[They have been hearing] preachers who do not preach from the authority of God’s Word, who interject their own personalities and who compromise themselves …”

He contends that many of those pastors are more concerned about political correctness than about preaching God’s Word — and argues that revival will come to America’s pulpits only when preachers begin to fear God rather than man.

Scarborough encourages Christians to study God’s Word diligently, and apply it to every aspect of their lives.

Rick Scarborough’s “Gospel” is not much more than promoting more hate and hysteria directed towards gay and lesbians. He is an idiot.
