Preacher’s That Don’t Believe


Baptist Press has published a study by Tufts University about preachers that do not believe what they preach.

The reason for this is the ambiguity of the pluralism that they teach. That pluralism sounds something like this – “God is many different things to different people, and since we can’t know if one of these conceptions is the right one, we should honor them all,”

God can be known! He has given us His Word and told us to read it to know of Him and to know Him. The very idea that God or His doctrine is unknowable or many different things to different people is pure hog wash.

Here is what was found about one Methodist pastor – He no longer believes God exists but his congregation does not know he is an atheist.

A United Church of Christ pastor preaches as if he is a believer because it is the way of life he knows, not because he believes the doctrine.

A Presbyterian remains a pastor because of financial reasons even as he rejects christian tenets.

A Southern Baptist was attracted to Christianity because it is a religion of love and he has since become an atheist.

I, personally, am not surprised about an unconverted ministry in any of these few denominations I have mentioned. When they do not preach the true Biblical plan of salvation few can be converted or experience the New Birth. I am thrilled to death that I am an Old Time Landmark Missionary Baptist where we preach repentance and confession and Grace and Faith.

Preach the truth Brethren.

  3. Diane, there is much squishy theology floating around today. The true of God’s Word is being fudged to gain people. The Bible tells us to speak the truth in love.
