The Majority Rules?

Yesterday my brother sent me an email response he received from a Christian radio station. He wrote a letter to the station to express his dissatisfaction of their choosing to add a female "preacher" to their program schedule. The Pres/CEO of the station, as he calls himself, sent back a very rude and arrogant response, which was very surprising as my brother's letter was written very graciously and did not attack them in any way. Here you can see one line of the CEO's reasoning in defending his decision to add this female "preacher" to their station.

Station CEO - "We have thousands of listeners and a lot of women who listen and you are the only one out of those thousands that complained."

I like what Spurgeon would have said if the station CEO would have said this to him.

Spurgeon - "Some people say, 'Why, you are in such a small minority!' Yes, yes; but as a general rule minorities are right. Up until now, the majority has never been on the side of Christ, the majority has never been for God, the majority has never been with the truth."

When will the church in our age awaken? When will it take a stand against the spirit of the age and stand on the side of truth, the side of the minority?

The church my parents just left used the same defense for why they began to emphasize the benefits of psychology in the church. One pastor responded to a challenge of that decision with: "But our numbers are up!"
That pastor puts too much stock in numbers.

p.s. Hi Lance. How are things?
