Voddie Baucham – When to leave a church


This is a short clip uploaded by wretchedtv. Watch the message Voddie Baucham preached at this same G3 conference (including full transcript) here- Voddie Baucham – What the Gospel Is, and What it is Not

Voddie Baucham on when and if one should leave a church. Some points from Baucham:

  • When you leave a church, there’s a way that you leave a church. We leave a church when we are in a right relationship with that church. There can be a variety of reasons to leave a church, but, it’s always to go to a church- if God’s called you to another place, you’ve had to move, or you found a church that better suits you or fits you. It’s not (because) ‘I don’t like you, or you don’t sing the songs that I like

If the church plays contemporary music and I like hymns, is that a reason to leave?

  • It could be, but can you stay there and not be divisive? If you could stay there and not be divisive, and be a source of encouragement, and live your life with these brothers and sisters, love covers a multitude of sins. 

Is a good rule of thumb, that if I’m getting bitter, maybe it’s time for me to rethink?

  • I think it’s time for you to repent. Because, when you get to that place, there’s a number of reasons you could be at that place, and they’re not all somebody else’s fault. So, if you’re at a place where you’re gossiping, and you’re becoming bitter; sometimes when we get to that place, things aren’t nearly as bad as we’ve made them out to be, because we’ve rehearsed them over and over again. And, often times, what’s needed at that point is really repentance and to go to our brother and say, „I’m sorry, I’ve been talking against you, instead of praying for you. I’m sorry.”
