COMMENTARY: Just a thought. If God allowed religious leaders in the past the free agency to lead the church astray, why would he change his approach on that today? And if you think you’ve heard that he promised it wouldn’t happen anymore, who exactly told that to you? The same people who might be able to lead you astray? In my opinion, this is an important enough question that it merits a little consideration. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
