Dear Pastor Whoever….
You and Father Whoever down the street have more incommon than one might think. Both of you areintermediators between a complex religious hierarchy andyour congregation. Both are titled. Both are wage earners.Both are tethered to the religion that endorsed you and placedyou behind concurrent pulpits. And sadly….
Sadly, your loyalty to God’s Word is wanting. Neither one ofyou can sign the last page of your Bible as a declaration beforeLord Jesus that you will obey His Bible (as you progressivelyunderstand it). It’s so easy for all to see that should FatherWhoever make and keep such a solemn vow he would soon beunemployed. Life-as-is would be no more. He may be forced tolearn a trade. Or perhaps McDonalds is hiring. For sure, hewould never be an employee of catholicism again.
And should you, Pastor Whoever, make and keep a solemnvow to obey the Bible, you too would soon be unemployed.You would be the fly coming under the wrath of an angry flyswatter. Bam! Evangelicalism can no more tolerate rebellionthan can catholicism.
Oh the irony! Both church leaders, assumed by trustingcongregations to be Christ’s appointees, cannot give allegianceto Christ’s Bible. Both ‘shepherds’ are forced to lead theirpeople away from the lordship of Christ and into stagnanttradition. Oh the irony!
Please reconsider the walk you walk, and the talk you talk.
