Jesus seems to link those that perform for the praise of man with those who do not keep the commandments of Christ and they will face judgment for it.
Not saying that Schaap is at fault of this, per se, but such accolades have always been accepted as a part of the HAC culture as far back as I can remember, whether it be in the form of applause, public recognition or even honorary doctorates.
Rather than giving public accolades to the speaker, why not give accolades to Christ's Word?
"If Christ were here now, there is one thing he would not be--a Christian." ~ Mark Twain
1 Corinthians 3:4-7 (ESV)
4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely human?
5 What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each.
6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.
7 So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.
The only accolades that matter are those received at the Bema Seat.
