How to Rid the Church of Goats

Today's Grace Gem is from D. J. Ward:
    The best way to purify the church and keep it pure is to get rid of all the goats! And the best way to run the goats out of the church is to feed them sheep food. God's sheep will grow in grace under the preaching of grace, but goats will go hungry because they choke on sheep food. They will soon leave and go somewhere else. Preach sovereign grace!

I had forgotten what I so despised about some brands Calvinist thinking. This was exactly something that tipped the scales in my leaving a Calvinist church. I heard a friend remarking about how happy a young Calvinist pastor was that the had started preaching the doctrines of grace and 80% of the people had left the church.

Gee ... couldn't possibly have been his lack of pastoral care could it?

Great God, would that those who held the truth could hold it more often in love. Proud to be Reformed, but ashamed to be Calvinist in this sense.

Shame on you D.J. Ward.

You do realize that there is a difference between goats and sheep, don't you?

The one true gospel is the Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the scriptures. Wherever the one true gospel is preached there is the Yeshua, and the will and grace of God. There are the chosen ones.

Don't you mean to preach mercy, since whenever the Lord is merciful, it seems all the devils of hell come out in force.

I truly pray the Lord has mercy on you.
