  10. Forget How Apostasy Works Comes Slow & Gradual (Heb. 2:3)

  11. Hebrews 2:1 “Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away” (NKJV) Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip. (KJV) Footnote KJV “run out as leaking vessels”

  18. Dangers Among Us Forget How Apostasy Works Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s)

  19. Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) • Orphan’s Home • Question of Bible Authority (2 Jno. 9) • Confusion of individual & church • Took passages directed to individuals & applied to church (Jas. 1:27; Gal. 6:10) • “Whatever the individual can do – the church can do”

  20. “The church is composed of Christians; what the church does, Christians do; what Christians do, the church does, generally speaking. We cannot separate the Christian's work from the work of the church....Actually, we may say that whatever is the duty of a Christian is the duty of a congregation of Christians.” V. E. Howard, "Institutionalism, Orphan Homes, and Church Cooperation," [1958] pp. 6-7

  21. “They make a difference between Christian duties and church duties, Christian responsibilities and church responsibilities, Christian work and church work, all of which is absurd on its face.” G. C. Brewer, [1948] The Harding College Lectures, p. 113

  22. “Any good work which the individual, as a Christian, is obligated to support financially, the church is equally obligated to support financially.” Batsell Barrett Baxter, “Questions and Issues of the Day”, [1963] p. 23

  23. Individual Church “If any believing man or woman has widows, let them relieve them…” (1 Tim. 5:16) “...and do not let the church be burdened, that it may relieve those who are really widows” (1 Tim. 5:16)

  24. Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) • Orphan’s Home • College in Church Budget • First issue before Orphan’s Home • Orphan’s home used to sell the College… • Confuse the individual & Church

  25. Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) • Orphan’s Home • College in Church Budget • “Social Gospel” • Church kitchens & fellowship halls • Church recreation (multi-purpose blds) • Confuse individual & church • Goes further & further

  30. Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) Orphan’s Home College in Church Budget “Social Gospel” Know What The Real Issue Was

  31. Common Meals – Individual Matters 1 Cor. 11 20 When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to eat the Lord's supper. 21 For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken. 22 What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in? or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise you not. More than an abuse of the Lord’s Supper!

  32. Eating In The Building The Issue: Was Not: Is the bld sacred? Can one eat inside the Building? Can one eat on church property? Was & Is: Can the church have a common meal for social and recreational purposes?

  33. Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) Orphan’s Home College in Church Budget “Social Gospel” Know What The Real Issue Was • When we don’t know our history, we are doomed to repeat the same mistakes! • Belshazzer did (Daniel 5) • Brethren did (forget 1800’s – repeated 1950’s)

  34. Dangers Among Us Forget How Apostasy Works Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church

  35. Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church • In Our Teaching • Assume – all understand (cf. Deut. 6) • Fail to teach principles • Fail to teach history • Raise a generation don’t know (Jud. 2:10)

  36. Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church • In Our Teaching • In Our Talk • “Church group” going….. • “Church Potluck” – “Church pitch-in” • “Church team” • “Our church gets together & plays ball”

  37. Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church In Our Teaching In Our Talk In Our Advertisements

  39. Dangers Among Us Forget How Apostasy Works Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church Argue That Social Is More Important

  40. Argue That Social Is More Important Would Not Say That – In Those Words But Look For Social – While Compromise The Spiritual

  41. Preach truth • No error • Do Deal with…. • Distinctive • Dry speaker • Gives a lot of scripture • Preach truth • No error • Not Deal with…. • Non-Distinctive • Interesting speaker • Tells lot of stories Tolerate Sin Tolerate Teachers of Error Conservative Stand - Sin Not TolerateTeachers of Error Social Activities But not as much as others Lot of Social Activities

  42. Dangers Among Us Forget How Apostasy Works Forget What The Issues Were (1950’s-1960’s) Fail To Distinguish- Individual & Church Argue That Social Is More Important Argue That Social Builds Faith

  43. Argue That Social Builds Faith • How The Argument / Contention Goes: • Not say: “Social relationships / actions is what builds my faith – not the word” • “Need a church with more social activities” • “Can’t grow without more social” • “Need this kind of good fellowship (eating / playing) to be stronger”

  44. Argue That Social Builds Faith • How The Argument / Contention Goes: • Gives A False Sense Of Security • While involved in social – I’m being spiritual • Those who really socialize are really strong, spiritual people • If do a not with other Christians – I’m strong!

  45. Argue That Social Builds Faith • How The Argument / Contention Goes: • Gives A False Sense Of Security • If Social Activities – Essential To Spiritual Growth – Why Can’t Church Be Involved • Edify? – make it a church activity? • Build faith? – make it a church activity? • Such argumentation – one step away from church sponsored meals, recreation, games, etc.
