Churches can descend into apostasy on a wide variety of issues. They might succumb to mysticism, feminism, worldliness, works righteousness, or any of the myriad corrupting threats poised against the church.

“Why is discipline important? Discipline teaches us to operate by principle rather than desire. Saying no to our impulses (even the ones that are not inherently sinful) puts us in control of our appetites rather than vice versa. It deposes our lust and permits truth, virtue, and integrity to rule our minds instead.”
John MacArthur Jr.

“Once I was free in the shackles of sin:
Free to be tempted, just bound to give in;
Free to be captive to any desire;

Bound by commands I am free to obey;
Captive by beauty I’m free to adore--
Sentenced to sit at His feet evermore.”
John MacArthur

“You can’t confuse childlike faith with childish thinking.”
John MacArthur
