« Intro to the Fundamentals of the Christian Faith | Main | We Need More Fools »



The Pastor should be more like a doctor than a salesman. A good doctor tells us what is wrong (our sin) and the cure is (Christ), regardless of how it makes us feel. A salesman tells us what we want to hear to get the sale, regardless of how truthful it is or appropriate to us. There is a false assumption that if we get the person into church with the sales pitch, then we can teach them the Gospel. This is a form of bait and switch.

When a Pastor no longer views the Gospel as the primary focus of their teaching and preaching, they have left their calling. The New Testament has very strong words for those who mislead the Church with false teaching.
