The Jehoshaphat Principles

FBFI Pulpit: Dr. David Innes, Hamilton Square Baptist Church, San Francisco, CA|
Series: What is Fundamentalism?

How does error enter into the believing church? Good men allow it in for reasons that seem good at the time. Dr. Innes illustrates these principles from the biography of Jehoshaphat, good king of Judah, author of apostasy. His testimony is a warning to succeeding generations.

Highlights from the notes for this message:

• You do not have to be a wicked man to do untold, immeasurable damage to the cause of Christ. You can be a godly, sincere, doctrinally correct revivalist and still set a disaster in motion.

• Everyone’s ministry is multi-generational, therefore, every present course of action will have historic consequences.

• Sowing and reaping always take place in a framework of time.

♦ The production of fruit is a long, slow process.

♦ That which is sown is magnified and multiplied many times over — Something relatively insignificant can have enormous consequences.

• Going into apostasy and idolatry is very easily and quickly done. Recovering from apostasy and idolatry is almost impossible.

• Carelessness by one generation can produce untold damage on many generations to follow.

• Those who insist on peace at any price will ultimately loose everything.
