I wrote this a few years ago. - Josh
To all people-pleasing pastors, preachers, and gospel workers:
I have noticed that you speak of how many souls you have seen “come to the Lord.” The
thought of it makes you feel accepted. May I ask a question? How many have you seen
come to repentance? You may rejoice, but the angels in heaven only rejoice when
sinners repent (Luke 15:10). Please allow me to remind you about the rich young ruler
who ran and knelt before Jesus walked away just as quick. You can find that in Mark 10.
Sir/Madam, don’t you see this is what many are doing? They may have “come to Jesus”
but in the same hour they “go away sorrowful” with no repentance.
