Pristine Grace

Churches Today
by Rolfe Barnard

    Churches today are loaded with nominal (unreal) members, at peace with the status quo. (That's Latin for the mess we are in). They are nice, quiet, friendly folks who are totally ignorant of the word of God but quite devoted to the traditions of their fathers. They yearn for institutional security, rather than adventures of Christian freedom, come weal or woe. Their preachers have sold their evangelical birthright for a mess of pot-bellied respectability.
