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

Beware of Spiritual Infections!

Let us develop a spirit of understanding and discrimination lest we become victims of the noxious, insidious infections which will rob us of our spiritual life and vitality.  I dislike having to say such things, but it is one’s duty to warn people against infections.  The preacher is a man who is called upon to placard notices warning people of dangerous, infectious, spiritual diseases.  The Church should put false teachers into quarantine and isolation hospitals, but until she does so I say, Avoid such men and their teachings and have no fellowship with them.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, “The Christian Soldier: An Exposition of Ephesians 6:10-20,” pg.153
