Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Committees

It comes as no surprise that Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the preacher who so despised the political action committees in the church, should also be impatient with the church’s governing committees in general.
The whole tragedy today is that the Christian Church is moving ponderously, slowly, heavily, while the world is in the grip of the devil. She is setting up committees to investigate the problems, and commissions to examine various situations, and calling for reports, interim and final, to be produced in a year, or perhaps several years, which will then be considered. And she is doing this while the world is on fire, and people are going to hell, and the devil is rampant everywhere!
