I wonder how many great Bible teachers and scholars never came to Christ or fell away from Him due to the same reasons that Dake, himself, almost didn't become a Christian?In Bible Truths Unmasked, Rev. Dr. Finis J. Dake wrote: Worldly Pleasures in Churches are Schools of Crime
When children see the world in the churches they are many times turned against Christianity and go into the world when they leave home. I was one of those that rejected Christ for years because of these conditions, and things are infinitely worse in churches today than when I was a boy.
I was brought up in a nice, dignified church where I saw church members participating in activities that were not appropriate for followers of Christ. Many is the time I said, “If that is Christianity, I do not want it.” I saw my friends join church, get baptized, and formally accept Christ. I never would join the church. I first wanted to see if religion changed my friends. When I saw them live as they did before, I turned from such hypocrisy and sham and rejected the church for years, until I saw real Christianity in practice. Then I was not long in getting saved from my sins. Sinners are hungry for real Christianity and they will soon accept Christ if men live Christian lives before them.
