I have come across some more “good stuff” on the various blogs I watch, and I want to share them with you. We need some edifying now and then after learning about all the bad stuff we need to look out for!
Back on the 12th I wrote an article about why apologists do what we do. Well, shortly after I wrote that, I came across this article about why we contend. Since it wasn’t included in my article, I will direct you to it for your perusal. We should all have this same mindset.
Of course we should all know that “the Bible is the best safeguard against false doctrine." We may know that, but how often do we study it so as to be on guard?
Elizabeth Prata wrote about the need for developing discernment, and how that affects the claim that we are not to “touch the Lord’s anointed.”
Biblical Counseling Coalition reminded us of one of the duties of church elders: to be disciple-makers.
Mike Ratliff had a short article about church discipline in regards to homosexuality. He keeps the issue of homosexuality in context with other sins.
A second article by Mike is “Witnesses to the Deity of Jesus Christ.” Really good stuff, and I’m keeping the link in my “favorites” for the next time I deal with LDS or JWs.
Apprising Ministries posted an interesting article, by Dr. Orrel Steincamp, about real spiritual warfare vs the false dominionist version.
Lastly, Recovering Grace posted a good article about Spiritual Abuse. This is something which we all need to be aware of, so as not fall prey to it.
I hope you find these articles to be as beneficial as did I.
