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

Are You Born Again?

Those who are born again have no difficulty whatsoever about the broad doctrines of salvation.  They do not understand them perfectly or fully, but they know that the biblical doctrine of sin is true—true of them, true of all.  They have no trouble believing the doctrine of condemnation and of hell.  If you dislike the doctrine of condemnation and the judgment of the Law, I cannot see that you are born again; you are thinking as a natural man.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones, “Experiencing the New Birth: Studies in John 3,” pg.70
