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

Is the Bible Just From Man?

If you are still arguing — “Well, is this anything but. . . is the Bible anything more than men’s thoughts and men’s ideas?” — if that is your view, take it from me, you are not born again.  Those who do not see the absolute necessity of revelation from God are not born again.  Those who are born again have no difficulty about revelation and the miraculous and the supernatural.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones, “Experiencing the New Birth: Studies in John 3,” pg.69
