No Tampering with the Gospel

"To tamper with the gospel is to trouble the Church. . . . Indeed, the Church's greatest troublemakers (now as then) are not those outside who oppose, ridicule and persecute it, but those inside who try to change the gospel. . . . Conversely, the only way to be a good churchman is to be a good gospel-man. The best way to serve the Church is to believe and to preach the gospel."  (John Stott, The Message of Galatians [Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 1968], "The Bible Speaks Today.")
