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

Good, Bad, and Ugly

The Good:
5 signs your church might be heading toward progressive Christianity.

Don’t compromise creationism with any hint of secular science ideology.


Who are the real Pharisees

What does the Bible teach about abortion?

The Bad:
Beth Moore continues her false teaching joining hands with other false teachers and heretics.  She has absolutely NO credibility.  And if that isn’t enough, she has another new book with more false teaching.

Another Catholic institution favors the LBGTQ crowd over true Christians.

The International Church of the Foursquare Gospel is a charismatic denomination founded by Aimee Semple McPherson, a woman of not only questionable doctrines but also of questionable character.  Perhaps members of this groups should think about whether they should be a part of such a church.  I’ve known members who are quite off base with some of their charismatic ideas.

The Ugly:
An example of all that is wrong with Michael Brown as a theologian/Christian teacher.  But it gets even worse.  Then his dishonesty raises up to protect himself from exposure.

Benny Hinn is NOT a real Christian, rather he is a wolf who has led millions of people astray.  This article is a good summation of why no one should be promoting him, appearing with him, following him in any way.

Steven Furtick has gone full-blown New Apostolic Reformation, joining lots of NAR heretics.

Strange. I wonder why it was taken down? It was really a good expose' of Brown's slinky avoidance of facts.

Alec,

I found a new link for the same article and edited the paragraph with it.
