    Since this therefore that? Not necessarily. Church leaders have adopted some if not all of the seeker friendly church growth methods. They see that it works and conclude that the Lord is blessing them accordingly. They get caught up in the excitement of church growth. Now they begin to put their trust in the purveyors of this movement. Little by little the purveyors introduce a little leaven here and there. They refuse to believe that the purveyors would knowingly or unknowingly lead them astray.
    This becomes a defensive, don’t rock the boat, of church growth. Do not think for a moment that their personal pride is a stake. They will not risk loosing their reputation by admitting that they have been duped. They like King Saul grab at straws to justify their errors. They make themselves believe the lie to maintain their delusion that they are great men of God.

  2. Jeremy

    Psalm 124 [[A Song of degrees of David.]]

    If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, now may Israel say;
    If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:
    Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:
    Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:
    Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

    Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.
    Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.
    Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
