Do you appreciate, allow, welcome or dislike questions from the congregation on your theological stance? Of course there is a reason I ask. Last night during the sermon our new pastor made some remarks that came very close to espousing the doctrine of election. But since it wasn't the main point of the sermon, he never made it entirely clear just how far across that line he was willing to go. Inquiring minds like mine, want to know! So, should I ask? And if I do, what is your preferred method of communication? I like e-mail, simply because I prefer written communication, it is less formal (and quicker) than a letter and both parties can write/respond as they have the time. Btw, since he is a really new preacher (5 weeks) and we have a fairly large church, we have never actually met.
