A preacher is a man who proclaims the irrefutable gospel of Christ (Romans 10:13-21; 1 Corinthians 1:17-31, 2:1-5, 3:1-10). And with so many lost souls in the world, a preacher has no time to be using the pulpit to talk about the campaigns of people running for public office (2 Timothy 2:1-4; Luke 9:60). And neither should a church open its pulpit for politicians to come and seek votes because the church is the pillar and ground of the truth and not a place for men to come and talk about Democrats and Republicans (1 Tim. 3:15). So a sound preacher realizes he has the commission to preach the gospel and woe be upon him if he doesn’t (1 Cor. 9:14-18; Acts 20:19-21:27; Ezekiel 3:16-19).
In church, you must demand that the preacher proclaims the word of God only, giving book, chapter, and verse for his teaching (Titus 2:1; 1 Peter 4:11). You must also demand that the preacher uses the word of God in the correct way (2 Cor. 4:1-6). If the preacher goes off on some kind of rambling speech about politics, or someone who is running for public office, demand that he get back to preaching the gospel or be fired (1 Tim. 6:3-5; Romans 16:17; 1 Tim. 1:3-4).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
