Personally, if a pastor cannot read at least the Greek New Testament from the original text or interpret it then he is not worth my time. I want to know more and more about the text in its original language. My opinion counts though where I am concerned and personally I vote with my feet when I feel my valuable time is being wasted. It takes a while to dress and do my hair and drive some place on a weeknight or Sunday. So in the words of the New Testament Writer….I want to make my calling and election sure. I am not going to rely on anyone else to tell me what I need to do to be saved. I want to make sure it lines up with the Bible and I want to read it for myself. I am not wasting my valuable time or life based on opinion. I need hard facts.
“ Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:10 & 11
