PREACHING HUMAN WISDOM IN THE PULPIT NEGATES THE FINISHED WORK OF JESUS CHRIST ON THE CROSS AND PRACTICALLY EMPTIES THE CROSS OF ITS POWER.
(1Cor. 1:17) “For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel–not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.”
THE APOSTLE PAUL SAID THAT A TIME IS COMING WHEN MEN WILL NOT PUT UP WITH SOUND DOCTRINE. INSTEAD, THEY WILL LISTEN TO WHATEVER THEIR ITCHING EARS WANT TO HEAR.
(2 Tim 4:3) “For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”
HE EMPHATICALLY SAID THAT SOUND DOCTRINE CONFORMS TO THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE (Gal 1:11-12, Acts 20-24) THAT WAS ENTRUSTED TO HIM BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
(1 Timothy 1:10-11) “for adulterers and perverts, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
