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

Christian Worldview

"Those who aspire to a Christian worldview must remember that when St. Paul talks about 'the renewing of our minds' (Rom.12:1), that verse is in the context of a call to lay our entire lives on the altar as a 'living sacrifice.'  In other words, the path to intellectual renewal is to offer up one's entire self -- mind, body, heart, and spirit -- in solidarity with the sacrifice of Christ.  Anything less can become pride and empty intellectualism."

Nancy Pearcey, "Saving Leonardo: A Call to Resist the Secular Assault on Mind, Morals, & Meaning,"  p.277
