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

Random Things for Instruction and Edification


Most of what I read on the Internet in regards to Christianity is about apologetics and keeping up with the news in that realm.  So it takes longer for me to come across articles which are of things which don’t fit in with my normal warnings against, and exposures of, false teachings and cults.  This is a collection from the past few weeks, and I hope you find these articles worthwhile.

I found this Portrait of a Hypocrite to be quite interesting.

An excellent study on what “The Image of God” means.

Elizabeth Prata has an outstanding analogy you’ll want to remember.

John MacArthur has a great commentary about Mary, the mother of Jesus; Who She Was (And Wasn’t).

Why is the subject of sex so important to Christians?

“Should You Judge Others?

The reason hymns are better than contemporary Christian music.

And lastly, here is a blog I follow just for the news, and have never commented on, but it is a great on for keeping up with what is happening with the Jews and Israel in today’s world.  I just thought it was about time to recommend it!
