From Ligonier Ministries: “People will come to church in droves if you entertain them. But that is not the purpose of worship. In today’s Q&A video from our 2017 National Conference, watch as R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur call the church back to its true purpose.” (Emphasis Mine).
This is a huge problem in today’s world. What people want is not always what they need. Show me a church that centers on [entertaining the people and I will show you a church that has malnourished people in the pews if they are not altogether lost.
“What is the greatest issue facing the church today?” In this clip from the introduction to a sermon entitled “The Maker’s Instructions,” GPTS Board Member and pastor, Dr. Ian Hamilton, suggests an answer appropriate to every generation. This sermon was Dr. Hamilton’s contribution to our 2016 Spring Theology Conference on Marriage, Family, and Sexuality. For the entire message, follow this link: https://youtu.be/6zTrxTtHaqA
