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

The Christian Man (and Woman)

The Christian is a man who should walk through this life as conscious that it is but transient and passing, a kind of preparatory school.  He should always know that he is walking in the presence of God, and that he is going on to meet God; and that thought should determine and control the whole of his life.

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, “Studies in the Sermon on the Mount,” volume 2, p.159
