Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity
by Sandy Simpson
The Scriptural definition of maturity is to learn to discern truth from error so that the Christian will no longer be double minded, blown about by every wind of teaching and by the schemes of crafty people. But the problem today is that so few Christian teachers are feeding their flock’s solid food. They are serving up milk and, because of that, people are starving. Yet they often don’t even know they have been on a starvation diet. Amos 8:11 “The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord, “when I will send a famine through the land— not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord."
