Solid Footing or Free Fall?

Falling from a high place can be injurious and/or fatal. To avoid this we try to stay where we have solid footing. Wise choice! In the Spiritual realm, the stakes are infinitely higher. We seem to be experiencing an Evangelical free fall. Some who claim to be Evangelical are falling from the solid footing of sound doctrine; some even questioning the need of doctrine. We’ve seen defections on verbal, plenary inspiration; on literal six day creation; some, according to a recent article, even calling into question the substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus. There is free fall in other areas, as well. Paul alluded to this problem in II Thessalonians 2:3. Speaking of the Day of Christ, he wrote, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first….” Our salvation, our service, our walk with God all depend on standing firm on sound doctrine. Who gains by compromising basic doctrines? Selah! Without sound doctrine, we have no basis for claiming any kind of genuine conversion experience. Ron
