Truth vs Numbers
So many of these modern preachers are much nicer people than the Apostle Paul! They never say a word against anyone at all, they praise everybody, and they are praised by everybody. They are never “negative”! They never define what they believe and what they do not believe. They are said to be “full of love.” I am not misjudging them when I say that that is not the explanation. The explanation is that they do not “contend for the truth,” they are innocent concerning the “wiles of the devil.” It is not for us to decide what to leave out and what to drop for the sake of unity. My business is to expound this truth, to declare it — come what may! We must not be interested primarily in numbers, we must be interested in the truth of God.
