We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer

Stealing Sheep or Rescuing Them?

“Sheep stealing” has been the persistent cry of liberals, cultists and others who were preaching “another gospel.”  But the cry is hollow if the sheep is “stolen” from such a fold.  As a matter of fact, “stealing” is an altogether inappropriate word to describe what is happening.  The fact, in such cases, is that the sheep has been rescued from a “wolf” in shepherd’s clothing.  He has been enabled to see that the devil’s servants often come as “angels of light.”
