The Worldly Pastor

April 27, 2010

William Tyndale has some strong words on the dangers of being a worldly pastor that should provoke anyone to think deeply of where his affections, intentions, and ambitions lie:

The worldly [preacher] is one of the first that seeth the light, and cometh and preacheth Christ awhile, and seeketh his own glory in Christ’s gospel.  But when he sees that there will be no glory unto that preaching, then getteth him to the contrary part, and professeth himself an open enemy, if he cannot disguise himself, and hide the angle of his poisoned heresy under a bait of true doctrine.

from Works of William Tyndale
