During the last century the fundamentalist doctrine of the church, and its boundaries of separation, were exchanged for a church without boundaries and a ministry method that goes along with error to get along with people.
In an effort to make the church more attractive, the distinctive pillars and boundaries were covered up, taken down, or ignored.
“Don’t say anything that would offend someone, or cause someone to leave. We want to win people, not repel them with plain spoken truth,” said the evangelicals.
The Lord did not create the church of His body to win people, but to speak the truth in love to see souls saved from sin, error, and corruption.
This requires boundaries that separate church ministry from ear tickling, and honest pillars that might cause people to turn around and leave.
There are boundaries to the ground of truth. It is our responsibility to keep them.
