THE CHURCH'S GREATEST TROUBLEMAKERS


Preacher and Bible commentator, John Stott, said this in his exposition of Paul's letter to the Galatians:


"To tamper with the gospel is to trouble the church... Indeed the church's greatest troublemakers (now as then) are not those outside who oppose, ridicule and persecute it, but those inside who try to change the gospel... Conversely, the only way to be a good churchman is to be a good gospel-man. The best way to serve the church is to believe and to preach the gospel."
