Great word Mike. Sadly, we see Balaam’s error playing out in various corners of the 21st century church … from professors of prosperity doctrine, to preacher boys with their culturally relevant hype, to formerly men of God who preach soothing things to keep their checks. There is no quicker way to lose your anointing than to lean toward Balak and the temptation he offers.

Yeah. Maybe we need to try a devotion on race-baiting, postmillennial arminians???

Or not… 🙂

Mike,
I really liked your article. Before becoming a pastor I used to wonder why some of the pastors I meet were dry, stodgy, bitter, frustrated etc., after more than a decade of consistent pastoral work I understand the whole litany of temptations that assault the life and mind of a person who is serious about the pastoral work. Your article articulates Balaam’s error very well. There is the temptation just to give the people what they want to hear,,,a temptation that must be overcome.

Thank you,
wilbur
