‘He felt God wanted him to speak’

A Nashville church plant, supposedly one of ours, is growing. and there is much to commend its approach. But the newspaper report also records numerous problematic (from our standpoint, not the paper’s) points. None is so great to my mind, even counting the use of instrumental music, as this one:

[The sermon] was supposed to be from the Gospel of Matthew, but Clayton switched gears around 5 a.m., explaining he felt God wanted him to speak from Hebrews.

When people begin to feel what God wants them to do, there is no limit to how far they will distance themselves from the divine will as revealed in Scripture.
