During forty years in the pastorate, one of my greatest agonies was seeing individuals from within who were tearing the church down. The Apostle Paul faced these church destroyers in the first century and warned those in Corinth who were building on another foundation, instead of building on Jesus Christ alone. We enjoy Paul when he comforts us, but we need to hear him when he gets tough on those propagating false teaching that infects the local church. Start adding to Christ's work of grace, tell people that they need Jesus plus something more, promote yourself and not Christ--and you will face intense divine judgment. 1 Corinthians 3:10-22 warns those striving to have personal power in the church instead of humbly bowing before Christ's authority.
