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

Random Things Needing Discernment

Can you imagine Paul telling Christians to visit pagan temples and hear pagan teachings and worship so as to understand them?!?!?

Doug Evans has a good article about Montanism — which is a heresy revamped by NAR/Word Of Faith adherents.

Jerry Falwell, Jr. is one name I’ve not previously mentioned on this blog so it’s about time I did, considering his latest actions. I guess since heretic Paula White was praying at the Presidential Inaugural, perhaps Falwell wanted on the popularity wagon?  Falwell said this “pastrix” “exemplified what being a Christian woman is about.”  (SHUDDERS!) 
And Falwell considers those who expose heretics such as White to be “Pharisees.”  I guess he doesn’t know what a real Pharisee is.

This has to be true because I saw it on the Internet.

The continuing important saga of Clayton Jennings.

Divinity schools are selling out God to satisfy man’s culture.

Elevation Church, the cult of Steven Furtick gets worse daily.

Beware of a new “Christian” book by Bethel Church “senior associate leader” Kris Vallotton.  Pure heresy.  (That Mark Batterson endorses it says lot about him!)

A reminder about avoiding the cultic “Passion Translation” of the Bible — it’s no better than the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ “New World Translation” because it is a translation made to support false teachings.

Another false prophet I’ve not previously heard of, Lance Wallnau; pay attention to how he comes up with his false prophecies (no, it’s not satire, regardless of how it sounds).

I’ve stated before that Michael Brown is lacking any real discernment when it comes to false teachers — he promotes way too many of them.  Now he’s promoting Word of Faith heretic Joseph Prince.  Brown is not to be trusted for any teachings about theology.

Discernment alert — this looks like a heresy fest!

Assertions and Assumptions are NOT the Foundation of the Church.  Be careful about accepting any of them.
