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 Few Good Things

If you’ve followed this blog long enough, you should have noticed that every now and then I like to share some good articles I’ve read.  It’s that time again.

First up, Elizabeth Prata has a good 3-part series for women and what their roles are in the Christian faith.  Part 1 points out some specific vulnerability women have.  Part 2 is a warning about “mommy bloggers.”  Part 3 is about discernment.  Enjoy.

We Are Adornments.

10 Reasons to Avoid Sexual Immorality.

Why I am Leaving the Church Growth Movement.

Did the Romans Invent Christmas?  Some interesting history.

That’s all for now.
