DeYoung: Things People Should Never Say They Never Heard at Your Church

Good pastors and teachers want to see their people grow in their understanding and that is as it should be. There is, however, a danger in thinking that Christian instruction should work like grade school where there is a continual progression from one lesson to the next. Unlike a phonics or math curriculum, Christian instruction relies upon constant re-examination of the basics. We can never assume that we know them well enough. 

In this helpful article pastor Kevin DeYoung encourages us to be sure that the basic teachings are not neglected. He wisely advises that we should never assume they have been adequately communicated or understood. The article is worth reading and deserving of our reflection. You can find it Here.
