The apostles told us not to blindly follow leaders of the faith, but instead, encouraged us to ‘test the spirits’.
Paul himself praised the Bereans for not just blindly accepting his claims — even though they were literally the gospel truth — withough first checking them against the scripture.
He called that a ‘good thing’.
As soon as it was night, the believers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men. — Acts 17
So, when’s the last time you gave your pastor a check-up?
If you’ve got 30 seconds, I’ve got 4 questions to ask yourself to see whether he’s on track and on mission … or if he’s wobblier than a college kid at a kegger.
Do you have your notepad ready? Good.

Beginning in March 2020, many Christians went into lockdown-freak-out mode.
They “socially distanced” themselves from corporate worship and from pretty much everyone and everything else, except, of course, liquor, and grocery stores.
Uncut, irrational, unbiblical, and not to mention, unconstitutional, fear gripped many churches and church leaders.
Should pastors publicly repent if they obeyed Fauci in regard to how they conducted their ministry instead of adhering to the clear commands of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
That’s a legit question, eh?
Get your copy of Dear Christian: Your Fear Is Full of Crap now. Better yet, grab an extra copy for any petrified pastor who dutifully put obedience to the unconstitutional edicts of Mayor McCheese ahead of obedience to the explicit commandments of the LORD God Almighty.
