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

More Random Good Stuff

I’ve come across some more good stuff which I feel are worth sharing so others can be edified as I have been.

Over the past couple years I have followed John MacArthur’s “Grace to You” blog off and on, and finally decided that there was enough good stuff to sign up for the daily emails.  Some are more thought-provoking that others, of course, and the next two items are two I felt needed to be shared.

First, there is the need for us Christian men to be “Sensible Men.”  No doubt about it.

The other article is “Guarding Sexual Purity.”  Sexual immorality, including the use of pornography, is one of the most insidious evils polluting our families and society.  Christians need to set the example with sexual purity, regardless of what the world is doing around us.

Now, there is an ideology which takes the whole sexual purity to an extreme to where Christians are doing the same thing as the unbelievers by identifying themselves as their sexuality!  We are NOT our sexuality.  Our sexuality is part of who we are as humans, but it doesn’t identify us — so quit acting like the world!

Atheists and skeptics love to condemn Christians for things like the Spanish Inquisition.  A good history lesson should give you ammunition to destroy the arguments these people present.

Answers In Genesis has a good response to “The Lost World of Adam and Eve,” a publication which ignores what the Bible says and makes claims based on the secular world’s information.  Personally, I like to get my facts from Scripture rather than man’s speculations.

Excellent article by Gary Gilley about “The Holy Spirit’s Witness.

Lastly, for those who claim that our Bible was assembled by the Council of Nicea or chosen by Constantine, etc, the evidence is very plain that the N.T. books were in use in the Church before the end of the 2nd century.  So those who claim otherwise need to come up with a different story.  The entire series this article is part of is quite interesting and recommended.
