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

How About Some Interesting Articles!

An interesting story about archaeological finds at the temple in Jerusalem.

Yes, the Bible DOES address “transgenderism.”

Does the Gospel of Mark teach the deity of Christ?

Sexual Morality in a Christless World.  Sounds like a good book to read!  On the flip side, Tim Challis posted an article about the sexual immorality of the Roman empire, which sounds much like that in the current USA!

Why study Church history?  To help prevent acceptance of erroneous beliefs.  I’m a history buff and am on my second time through Eusebius’ history of the church (for those who don’t know, he was the first Church historian, tracing its history until early 4th century).  I’ve also finished three volumes of the 10-volume set of the writings of the Ante-Nicene Fathers.   I also have two different books which are single volume histories of the Church, and I highly recommend the book, “The Early Christians In Their Own Words,” edited by Eberhard Arnold, as well as David W. Bercot’s “A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs.”  I have numerous other books about various aspects of the history of the Church.  Every Christian should have at least ONE volume of church history!

An interesting look at what the Bible says about heaven.
