Salesmanship or Discipleship?
1/4/2017 12:41:00 PM by: Dr. Harlan Betz

The church is being lured away from the truths of the Bible to the techniques of Madison Avenue. Success and salesmanship have replaced obedience and discipleship! The Bible says, in 1 Timothy 4:1 that “In the latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.”  The Bible explains this further in 2 Timothy 4:2-3 where we read, “They will not endure sound doctrine... they will turn away from the truth.”

Are you seeking salesmanship or discipleship? Are you wanting truth to be taught or are you wanting your ears to be tickled? Are you hungry for success in man's eyes or for faithfulness in God's eyes?

Do not let the voices of this world drown out the voice of God. Do not let the attractions of things that are temporal distract you from things that are eternal! God is calling us to be disciples. God is commanding us to preach the Word. God is challenging us to be faithful.
