In my most humble opinion most or at least many of our pastors have the cart before the horse, in that they seem to be more concerned of the elect that are to be called and not the sheep in church. Of course both are important but as a lay man I sure do wish the pastors would take care of the sheep in the fold already and treat them like The Lord treats His children. This message has been provided by a lay member of a PCA church. You may return to you regular programing.Personally I believe that until we return to Reformed worship the church
will continue to decline in standards and influence. The purity of worship
is the one area of attack that the Lord's people are ignoring, and treat it
as something of indifference. Such an attitude will only foster more accretions
on the noble edifice which is the habitation of the Spirit, and incur the chastisement
of the Highest. He will be worshipped according to His will not ours, and by the
pattern he has prescribed.
