|We receive almost daily messages from around the world. We have an excellent contact in Australia who keeps us aware of what is happening with the churches there. Our "contact" tells us that in West Sydney, there are few truly teaching churches. |
Though he is on the elder board of a specific congregation, he tells us he is about to give up on church. And though he was placed on the elder board just recently, the lack of spirituality is disheartening. If it were not for some of my books, and some other premillennial/dispensational volumes, he would be out in the cold. The Scofield Reference Bible and the Bible Knowledge Commentary keep him solid doctrinally and biblically.
The churches there are deep into The Emerging Church Movement. Even in the Bible schools that he knows of, doctrinal teaching is foreign to the teachers and the students. One can say the disease of Apostasy is spreading around the globe! This can be good in that those who want to teach the full council of God are growing stronger in their conviction and determination. Prosperity teaching is in; Exegetical instruction is out!
When possible, I want to supply to Australia books for pastors. I will do the same for other pastors. Here in the States we'll send the books at no charge, but if sent overseas, we need a donation for the shipping costs. – Dr. Mal Couch
