C.H. Spurgeon knew he was different after his conversation with Dean Spunkmyer. “Do it your way if you like Charles but the latest research data states that you cannot build a large following by telling the crowd what the need to hear you must tell them what the want to hear. Oh and an espresso bar doesn’t hurt.”
No sir, young master Tomlin. People will never allow a guitar-led barrage of praise tunes to replace the hymns played on pipe organ...Plus, there will never be coffee-shop styled lounges placed inside churches. People go to church to hear God's word not to experience the world's wares...
"I hear rumors that you want to start something called a youth ministry? I tell you forget it. Not in this church!"
This is the book you are are looking for right here, pelagianism for dummies by ahh.... Finney.
Young man, do you see that urn on my desk? I will have you know that it contains the ashes of the last child who picked up my hat with out permission. So, now, let us hear your AWANA's memory verses.

Young Master Jones, if we catch you reading Calvin's Institutes again, we will inform your parents and you may face expulsion. We have high standards here at the Pensacola Bible Boarding School.
Yes, my boy, we're all about raising up the next generation of leaders. That's why you shouldn't bother with all this Reformed mess. No. The biggest factors to becoming the president of the SBC is how big your church is and how much money you give to Lottie Moon and the Cooperative Program. So we'll have to get you placed where you can move up. Then I'll have you nominated by all the right people. You can go far if you stick with us.
"Open Channel D, Mr. Stockwell"
Now, see here young man, I say Humbug! to your Sola Scriptura!
