I was given this moto years ago and my Pastor use to tell us young Preachers.
Then he said the other book was like George Foxes book of Martyrs
about people that suffered and gave their lives for CHRIST and stood when it was not popular and all the Preachers and the Church throwed you out.
Then he would say fellas its your choice you can Preach for years
with lace on your drawers and paint your toe nails or you can
stand for CHRIST and even give your life as a martyr if need be.
Then he would say tonite make a choice which book will it be?
So I got this to guide me and remember the vow I made when
I first saw this.
It is better to be divided by truth than to be united by error."
•"It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills."
•"It is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God."
•"It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated."
•"It's better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with a multitude."
•"It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed
Please let me clarify to the Preachers your not suffering for CHRIST
if you do something stupid and hurt a lot of People,that's a novice.
Just because your Pastor does not mean your a worthy leader amen!!
You have to win peoples confidence like King David
when he wanted a drink of water and his mighty men loved DavidAnd these men that risked their lives for David under his leadership,they knew David had killed a lion and a bear and a giant
And had proved his self as a leader and you dont just walk in a people is going to follow you,your leadership has to be earned.
Love In CHRIST
