According to Dr. John R. Rice, Jehoshaphat’s philosophy was “I’ll go anywhere and preach for anybody as long as no strings are attached to my message.”
The problems Jehoshaphat met were similar to the problems with which men must deal today. He was a man of God in a world full of people who did not love God. What should his attitude have been toward these men? How far did he go with his fellowship? If he loved them enough to help them, would he love them enough to compromise with them? If a man, in disobedience to God, errs on the side of love and kindness, on the side of fellowship, how will God deal with him? How will his sin affect his children and his generation?
Rice shows the sad results and the sorry outcome of this unwise and unscriptural philosophy illustrated by the dealing of God with King Jehoshaphat in the Old Testament.
