Could It Be True?

We heard of a man in Texas who would not consent to having his name placed before the congregation to serve as an elder.  This was his reason.

“I drink quite a bit and love to dance.  I am also inclined to gamble, and my attendance is not what it should be.  My Bible teaches me that elders should not do these things.  I’d rather be just a  faithful, humble, and consecrated member of the church and let someone else be an elder.”
