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

Time For Some Good Stuff

Some interesting articles I’ve read recently, with some good information.

A wolf in the house:  18 signs of apostasy in the assembly.

Biblically sound blogs by women.  Looks like with some you might encounter TULIPs, so use discernment.

The early church vs Rome.  Good, short study.

No, Saul did not become Paul — he was both all the time.

Whilst I totally understand and comprehend what was written about Giving up Lent, I fear that there is precious little teaching in virtually any modern church community about fasting (which Jesus assumed we would do, with specific instructions on how to) and gluttony and the worship of food, which, I would suggest, is one of the most unrecognised of sins within Western Society.

Nowhere in Scripture is fasting mandated.

I whole-heartedly agree with you about gluttony and the worship of food! Never hear it spoken against.
