In N. Ireland, during the troubles there, some of those caught up in paramilitary violence would be converted, and no sooner were they saved than they were paraded from church to church sharing their testimony as an ex-paramilitary. Such events often drew large crowds, but you know what it did for many of the men concerned? It caused them to shrivel on the vine. These were often new believers. They needed to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus, but because they were so often ministering, and so rarely ministered to many of them soon grew weak, cold, and backslidden. That’s a real danger.
