TRANSCRIPT:

Zac Poonen – Bible Teacher

Hebrews, chapter 6. And we saw here that the burden of the writer of this letter is to lead Christians beyond the milk level to solid food level, beyond foundation to superstructure, beyond the nursery class to higher education. In our earthly life, none of us want to be babies, none of us want to stop our education with the nursery class, and none of us will want to have a building with only the foundation.

Why is it then that in the Christian life so many believers seem to be satisfied with just drinking milk, laying a foundation, and living in the nursery class all their life? And we saw in our last study what the nursery class is: Repentance, faith, water baptism, baptism in the Holy Spirit, spiritual gifts and healing, the hope of the future of resurrection, and eternal judgment in heaven or hell.

Don’t you realize that most believers are occupied with only these things? And if you have these things and you go to some place and you preach the gospel, the gospel you preach will only be these things, how you can lay a foundation. And you bring people to birth, that means you’re bringing them to being born again, and then never let them grow. They are babies forever and ever and ever, and you have a church full of babies, whether they are fifty years old or two years old.

Retarded children: this is the problem with multitudes in Christendom today. Maybe one pastor who is mature, sometimes he’s also a baby. And this is not the Christianity in the New Testament. Let us press on to perfection. And if you yourself have never gone beyond the nursery class, how can you lead other people beyond the nursery class? If you’re still drinking milk, how can you lead other people to drink more than milk?
