An earnest young Christian moves to a small town with two churches.
Church A is staunchly committed to New Testament principles of eldership, the Lord’s
supper, the priesthood of all believers, and related truths. But sadly, a few visits
reveal a lack of spiritual fervor in the assembly. Evangelistic zeal seems non-existent.
The prayer meeting lacks power and unction. Dryness and complacency hang like a pall over
the meetings on the Lord’s day.
