Default Worshiping the Preacher


Henry Ward Beecher, the famous pulpit orator, once had to be absent and his brother was invited to speak for him. The church house was crowded, but when it became evident the eloquent Henry Beecher was not going to appear, many started to leave. Beecher's brother was not disturbed. He stood up before the murmuring crowd, called for silence and said, "All who came this morning to worship Henry W. Beecher may now leave. The rest will remain and worship God."
What are we doing in our assemblies? Some, like the Athenians, come only to hear the preacher say "something" (Act_17:20-21). "Is it relevant?" "Is it positive?" Are mental guidelines used in judging sermons? Some attend to judge the singing, the prayers, or the friendliness of the congregation. These go away with a host of criticisms, perhaps, or even pride, but worship has been forgotten.
Why do we gather for worship? Some come to "get it over with for a week"; to get their tickets validated once more. But those who come because they need strength in carrying their crosses know the value of true worship.
Worship has nothing to do with the song leader or the talent of the preacher. It has to do with you and your God. Let people do what they will to please themselves. "The rest will remain and worship God."

Then your focus is on doctrine.No cut down my friend at all. You've actually confirmed some things I saw in other Baptist churches. I do believe Baptist place a great deal on correct doctrine.

Myself, . . .I can worship at almost any bible believing church. I do feel that one is better off to find a church that one lines up with doctrinaly. I have yet to find one that I totally agree with everything that is being taught . . .I doubt there is one. However I don't want to be so out of accord with folks that I'm an outsider either. I believe that in a church we should be willing to work, but at the same time be satisfied with whatever role we are/ or are not given.

Leaf,
My trinity question is more for my benefit than yours brother,I know how you feel toward that issue and was wondering how far you would go to worship in a different church?
Thanks,
Chuck7
