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
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

A Christian Obligation

The heaviest obligation lying upon the Christian church today is to purify and elevated her concept of God until it is once more worthy of Him.  We do the greatest service to the next generation by passing on to them undimmed and undiminished the nobel concept of God which we received from our Hebrew and Christian Fathers of generations past.
A.W. Tozer, as cited by Keith Gibson in his article The Apostolic and Prophetic Movement, published in Truth Matters, newsletter of Discernment Ministries International, January 2012

So true, and if you study the failings of Israel in the OT it was the very lack of passing on God's Word, and teaching of His presence & faithfulness to their children which often caused them to stumble and follow after false teachers.
