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

Calling Sin, "Sin"

Are we willing to call sin “sin” not because it is big or little, but because God’s law forbids it?  We cannot categorize sin if we are able to live a life of holiness.  God will not let us get away with that kind of attitude.

Jerry Bridges, “The Pursuit of Holiness,” p.19

SIN?? Not tolerant, not PC. Making excuses for sinful behavior, but ~

Until each of us willingly "owns" our sin[s] acknowledging we are sinners in need of a Saviour, we and this once great nation will never heal and never be reconciled to God.

God has not abandoned America, He has just stepped aside and given us what we want - our own way!!!
