Recently, I read the following letter: I was saved in 1973, and I have seen dramatic changes in Bible-believing churches over the past 44 years, and in the vast majority of cases, the changes have been for the worse. Everywhere I go, I see churches getting weaker rather than stronger. I am talking about weaker in biblical preaching, weaker in clear reproof of sin and error, weaker in Bible knowledge, weaker in holiness, weaker in separation from the world, weaker in [true worship], weaker in discipleship, weaker in passion for Christ, weaker in evangelism, weaker in zeal for world missions. I see the weakness in pastors, in the old people, in the homes, and in the youth. [letter slightly edited] So my question to those reading this is, is your church getting stronger or weaker?
