Responding to news of defections

As a Christian who believes that the New Testament presents a specific pattern for salvation, worship, morality and mission, and as one who preaches that Jesus must first become our Lord before he will be our Savior, I feel dismay at recent news of churches that surrender the truth, at the appointment of an ACU president who will continue its course toward denominationalism and sectarianism and at the news about Ken Starr’s selling out to Baylor.

Here is my response to those reports, for myself and to encourage you: Jesus shows the way during crisis. I pray it will accomplish its stated purpose.
