Ben Patterson, campus pastor of Westmont College, tells the story of a retired pastor who began noticing that his former congregation was sliding away from orthodoxy. The pastor saw this as his fault and stated, in two sentences, his great failure as a pastor: "I always told people what to believe. My great mistake is that I never told my people what NOT to believe."

(From a sermon by Brian Bill, The Goal of the Gospel, 4/17/2011)
