Better a believing handful than an uncertain crowd

In one of his sermons, Martyn Lloyd-Jones remarked that one of the priorities of any church should be the purity of its doctrines, its theology.  The temptation to strive in creative ways for numbers can cause us to be less vigilant with regards to theology.

But says, Lloyd-Jones, "Better a handful of people who believe that Jesus is the Christ than a crowd who are uncertain as to whether He is or not and who falsely use the word 'Christian.'"

--Life in Christ: Studies in 1 John, p. 237
