We’re having a fascinating discussion today with Pastor Chris Quintana about the importance of looking at 2 Timothy with a big-picture view of its purpose.
Pastors are facing in an increasing amount of pressure to conform to the culture, just like they did in the early church. In fact, it only took a generation for the apostasy and error to creep in. Pastors and elders increasingly feel the pressure from members and from outsiders Group-think unity, societal pressure and an increase in biblical illiteracy makes for a poisonous brew. Today we are interviewing a pastor who protects his flock.
Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
Chris Quintana is senior pastor at Calvary Chapel Cypress in California. Chris has a love for Bible Prophecy and sees the modern church’s move away from historic Christianity as a indicator of the the last days.
