Make sure you follow this beloved because it is coming to your church too if you are not vigilant against it. The pastor will move away from solid bible exposition and start moving into topical sermons designed to tickle the ears and entertain the crowds. The Gospel presentation will cease addressing sin and repentance on any meaningful level. Even the sinner's prayer will be watered down. Some of the more seasoned congregants, maybe even some elders will go to speak to the pastor about the dangers and pitfalls of the path he is taking the church on. Unless these pillars of the church are willing to toe the new purpose driven line they will be blessedly subtracted. Doctrine will mean less and less. Consider that Andy Stanley has now preached against the inerrancy of Scripture and against Christians including the Old Testament in their faith!
