Was listening to the pastor today, and while I take no issue with the churches commitment to expository preaching, Biblical Creationism, and Nouthetic biblical counseling, they seem to really bomb it with soteriology. For example once again like every service he gave an alter call, and once again all one had to do to become a christian was to pray a prayer, and come forward. Hell was not mentioned, sin was mentioned only once and not explained, no mention of repentance, etc.. I have tried to reason with the pastor(s) before but it fell on deaf ears so I have given up with them. After the service however I found a Deacon whom loves to evangelize and thinks very much of Chic Cartoon tracts as thats the only tract that he uses. Chic Cartoon tracts are heavy on preaching Fire & Brimstone, sin, and they do emphasize repentance from sin. Although an Arminian soteriology, at least a far more Biblical approach. NOT INTERESTED IN A DEBATE ON CHIC TRACTS thanks. I asked the deacon how he could use Chic Tracts and at the same time stomach the easy-believism message preached every week at the church, and he broke down and said the church is dead wrong in their alter call evangelism, and several other areas. He said they are way way way too soft in their evangelism, and even he has complained numerous times, but his complaints likewise also fell on deaf ears. Friends if you attend an easy-believism church I suggest you get out if you have the choice to do so. Perhaps the church down the road does not preach expositionally but they have a strong understanding of soteriology, I would go there regardless of their preaching style. I realize some pastors are topical in their preaching (John Piper) but if they understand soteriology thats where you need to be at.
