Author and new pastor of Coral Ridge Pres. Church, Tullian Tchividjian (grandson of Billy Graham), writes about How To Identify a Reliable Preacher. He has five helpful questions:
#1. Does the preacher ground everything he says in the Bible?
#2. Does the preacher freely emphasize that because of sin, a right relationship with God can only be established by God’s grace alone?
#3. Does the preacher stress that salvation is not achieved by what we can do, rather salvation is received by faith in what Christ has already done?
#4. Does the preacher underline that Christ is the exclusive mediator between God and man?
#5. Does the preacher exalt God above all?
Ponder these… and pray for your preacher today.
