People have often asked me how they may recognise a sound Church. I have said that it lies not only in what a Church does preach, but in what it does not preach. In other words, all that they do preach may seem sound, yet what they do not preach may give them away. The most common example is the Church which does preach the grace of God -- but only the grace of God, or predominantly the grace of God, in such a way as to be out of keeping with the emphasis of Scripture. OBSERVATION: One does not necessarily need to hear false teaching to know one is in the wrong place.
