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

Give Your Employer His Due

It is the business of the servant, the man who is employed — irrespective of who may employ him — to give himself utterly to his track and to his master while he is doing it.  His time is not his own time, it is his master’s time.  The money he handles is not his, it is his master’s.  Everything connected with his work is his master’s.  In other words, I would say that a Christian is disobeying the Apostle’s injunction if, during his master’s time, and when he ought to be doing his master’s work, he is directing his attention to any other interest.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Life in the Spirit in Marriage, Home & Work: An Exposition of Ephesians 5:18-6:9, pg. 348
