Was John Liberal?

How many times have you heard it said that if many people do something in the church, then it must be liberal? Do you believe that yourself? If a large church automatically means that it is liberal, then John the Baptizer must have been liberal.
When John appeared preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, Mark showed us this, “Then all the land of Judea, and those from Jerusalem, went out to him and were all baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins” (Mark 1:5).
If John had lived today, some preachers and members of the church would have labeled him a liberal. Oh, but wait, some did oppose John during his days. I wonder, does that make some people today equal to John’s enemies then?
Large numbers or small numbers do not determine whether something is acceptable to the Lord. Learn to think as He does and not as some modern preachers do whom you fear.
