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

Fear Not the World

Why should you fear?  Why should you be afraid?  Do you not know that the prince of this world has been judged?  He is no lord, no prince any more.  You have a different, a stronger Lord, Christ, who has overcome and bound him.  Therefore, let the prince and god of this world look sour, bare his teeth, make great noise, threaten…he can do no more than a bad dog on a chain.

Martin Luther
