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

Never Accommodate False Teaching


“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of Christ” does not mean that you accommodate yourself to wrong teaching and doctrine, that you say nothing when falsehood is being propagated.  No! for that is a denial of all the New Testament.  Not only that, it is a denial of some of the most glorious epochs and eras in the Christian Church.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Life in the Spirit in Marriage, Home & Work: An Exposition of Ephesians 5:18-6:9, pg. 67-68

Amen.

Appreciate all these Martin Lloyd-Jones quotes, Glenn. Your readers might be interested to know that all of the MLJ sermons are now available for free through the MLJ trust. They also have a podcast. http://www.mljtrust.org

Recommended the podcast to a friend who had never heard of MLJ. He told me last week how much he is being refreshed by the solid teaching.
