Oh, how it's too bad when we think of the church. Sometimes if the pastor belongs to a certain organization or a clan, and this organization sends him to a certain church, and sometimes that pastor's hands is tied by that organization. And the little fellow wants to serve the Lord, and he thinks--been taught that's about the only way he can do it, is by serving his organization. And if he got up and preached what the Word said, the church would vote him out; and then he's afraid he wouldn't have a chance then to preach the Gospel.
