Truth is Truth
If Charles Spurgeon, or your favorite spiritual hero calls something you believe stupid or heresy, many of you would say “Awesome! Powerful! What a man of God!”
Yet if I – or any other preacher who is not famous – say the exact same thing to you, you’re offended and you curse or ridicule. Why is that? What does that say about celebrity preachers and the literal worship of them? What does it say about our hearts?
Truth is still truth, regardless of who says it. What does it say about how we view the biblical authority of a preacher? What does it say about our view of God and His gifts to specific men, called to His purpose and for our benefit?
What does it say about us? It is interesting.
