  14. 14. ―I am always asked this question...what do you think is the main problem facingthe church? I always answer basically the same way. The main issue facing the church is the lack of discernment. That is the main issue facing the church. The church doesnt distinguish between truth and falsehood. It has a defective immune system. It has a case of spiritual AIDS. It does not have the ability to fight error because it doesnt know the truth. It doesnt have enough truth antibodies to fight off error. The church is ignorant. It is blissfully ignorant and consequently it is victimized easily by error.‖ - John MacArthur www.confidentchristians.org
