Good ecclesiology demands that there exist an awareness of, appreciation for, and deliberate connection to the flow of redemptive history....The goal certainly should not be to encourage young pastors to distrust or remodel what they have learned from faithful men.
John MacArthur rightly challenges the contemporary thirst for novelty, individuality, and uniqueness in church planters today. The lesson applies, however, to all Christians in all churches. The goal is to be faithful, not entrepreneurial. The former promotes Christ, the latter puts self on center stage.
