Cowardly Preachers

This quote below by Charles Spurgeon identifies very well many pastors today. Too many have chosen to soften the truth of God's Word, leaving out the difficult passages during sermons and being very selective with their topics so as not to offend.

We all need to pray for our pastors so they will faithfully preach and teach the whole council of God, as difficult as that may be at times.

Please pray for your pastor. It's well past time for the Truth to be boldly proclaimed.

“I know of no surer way of a people’s perishing than by being led by one who does not speak out straight and honestly denounce evil. If the minister halts between two opinions, do you wonder that the congregation is undecided? If the preacher trims and twists to please all parties, can you expect his people to be honest? If I wink at your inconsistencies will you not soon be hardened in them? Like priest, like people. A cowardly preacher suits hardened sinners. Those who are afraid to rebuke sin, or to probe the conscience, will have much to answer for. May God save you from being led into the ditch by a blind guide.”

--Charles Spurgeon

This is happening all over the US. Preachers are just plain unwilling or scared to speak the truth. Why? Lack of faith is all I can say. For what does man have to fear of man? Our God is much stronger!

Great post.
