Paul looks at the adulation heaped upon the latest leader at the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. Was there any reproof for the disgraced institution that is a blight to Christ’s church? Will any in this ‘old boys club’ have the moral fortitude to turn their backs on the god of numbers and peer adulation, as yet another abuse case is linked to the institution.
“Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.”
“No church did more to turn God’s houses across the land into cheap, carnal circuses than First Baptist Church of Hammond through the influence of its books, college, and annual Pastors Schools.”
-David Cloud (Way of Life)
