Different From The World

Dave Huntby Dave Hunt

Those who would implicitly trust and obey Christ’s Word and be His true disciples (John 8:31-32) must be willing like Daniel and his friends to stand alone. Afraid to be different, most Christians run with the herd. Eager for this world’s plaudits, they “love the praise of men more than the praise of God” (John 12:43).

Charles Spurgeon stood virtually alone, abandoned even by former students and friends, when he was censured by the British Baptist Union for his unwillingness to tolerate apostasy within that body.

Shortly before his death, A.W. Tozer declared, “I have preached myself out of nearly every pulpit in North America.”

What an indictment of those pastors and churches!
