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

The Church Dropped the Ball on Marriage

The church stopped defending marriage when fast-and-loose, no-fault divorces became fashionable in the church.  We did so when adultery, premarital sex, and cohabitation were no longer condemned from the pulpit.  We let go of the family unit when dads walked out on their families and left fifteen million US children fatherless.  That was when the church dropped the ball on marriage.
