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

Some Good Stuff

Like so many people, I have been quite busy with a million things these past couple weeks, not to mention spending way too much time cleaning snow and ice off the driveway and walks!

I have come across some articles which I think will brighten your day.

First, there is the testimony of Kurt Goedelman, of Personal Freedom Outreach apologetics ministry.  I know Kurt personally, having first met him in April 2004 at the St. Louis Conference on Biblical Discernment, as well as having connected with him at the 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012 conferences, and I have co-authored with him an article on Beth Moore.  He gave his testimony in two parts on The Berean Call’s radio program, Search the Scriptures.  You can read the transcripts here and here.

The remaining articles I’ll link to are about Christmas!

Jon Gleason has an interesting article about Joseph’s possible thoughts about Mary’s being with child.

Jon also explains why there are two genealogies for Jesus.

Then there are the “9 Things You Should Know About Christmas.”

The first item links to this interesting trivia about how the 25th of December became the date to celebrate.

Have a blessed Christmas, however you choose to celebrate it!
