People's Bible Notes for Philippians 1:18


Php 1:18 Every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached. So anxious is he to have Christ preached, that, whatever may be the motives of men, whether their zeal is only "in pretence, or in truth", still if only Christ is preached, he will rejoice. This is not a sanction of a false gospel, nor of the men themselves, but rejoicing, if by any means the knowledge of Christ is spread. See Ga 1:8. How different this glorious unselfishness, and greatness of spirit, from the narrowness of those who higgle over "plans" and forbid "those who walk not with them"!
