False Conversions: The Suicide of the Church (Session III)
Throughout redemptive history, God has brought about a plan to bring glory to himself through a particular people. Today, this occurs through the church. However, is it a problem if not all members of your local church are born again believers? Many churches today have false converts due to a lack of biblical knowledge regarding teachers, doctrine and godly living.
