What concerns me the most is that it seems many pastors/preachers/ministers are not preaching the word of God but their own brand of doctrine filled with promises, guarantees, compromise and threats based on traditions rather than the word. In one breath they proclaim the Gospel found in scripture and then in another deny the historicity, truthfulness, and accuracy of the very same. It has become apparent that when something the world says doesn't line up with the bible, God's word is immediately questioned rather than questioning our own sinful thinking.
This is the case with Genesis and the creation story, we've allowed evolutionary thinking to creep in under the guise of theistic evolution, or progressive creation, but the bible doesn't say that God created the world in thousands or millions of years, it says specifically six literal, 24hr. days. This compromise has lead to many doctrinal heresies, I guarantee if you line up many of the false televangelists and preachers you would find one common thread among them, they do not hold to a true and literal creation account even though topflight Hebrew academics are unanimous that Genesis was written to convey exactly what it claims, six literal 24hr. days of creation. Are not those who reject this accusing God of misleading His people for thousands of years?
The point I am making is that we are allowing the secular thinking of the world to influence the church rather than the other way around. The Lord said through the Apostle Paul "...Let God be true but every man a liar..." (Rom.3:4a) This ought to be our motto as people of God. People aren't going to receive a message that we don't even believe in ourselves, that we are not living ourselves. You can't believe that the bible is God-breathed if you only believe some of it and throw the rest out because it doesn't fit into some neat little frame of thinking.
We ought to defend and proclaim the word of God as true from the beginning.
