CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – The Rev. Keith Marshall Williams, senior pastor of Nazarene Baptist Church in Philadelphia, spoke of “Living Clean in 2015” at Ransdell Chapel on the campus of Campbellsville University April 10.
“We live in the days of apostasy,” Williams said.
Williams’ spoke on the subject of apostasy, or Christians falling away from the faith.
“Many churches are dying, recycling hypocrites anew. Men will not endure or tolerate sound doctrine,” Williams said.
Williams called all Christians in attendance to “stop serving two masters.” He argued that we are here to glorify our father. In a day where many are falling away, Christians should not weary of doing good, he said.
“If we are going to finish the race, we must have passionate prayer,” Williams said.
Williams said Christians are to fight the battle where it is — not a physical but spiritual war.
“We, as Christians, need inexplicable unity,” Williams said. There is a divide in the church, needing to be bridged he said.
“Finally, we need power,” Williams said.
“We know the one who has overcome the world,” Williams said.
Williams was the recipient of the Campbellsville University Leadership Award for his faithful witness and servant leadership.
