Questionable Speaker

I have always wondered why some churches will invite politicians who have obviously not been called to preach to speak in their congregations during a Sunday worship service. You would think that the members of the church would deserve better. Perhaps it is the allure of having someone who is well-known to grace them with their presence and deliver a message, no matter how inadequate or inappropriate that message may be.

Yesterday, President Joe Biden delivered the Sunday morning sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once preached. With all due respect, I don’t think that President Biden is qualified to preach at a Bible-believing church. He has anger issues. The president has trouble telling the truth. He regularly uses the names of God and Jesus as swear words. Mr. Biden is a champion of abortion and celebrates same-sex “marriage”.  

These sins would prevent any discerning Bible-believing church from giving Mr. Biden a platform to speak. It seems that some churches are so star-struck that they don’t even consider the lack of character in the celebrity that they invite to come and speak for them.

We can do better than that. We should do better than that.

“For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”—2 Timothy 4:3.
