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

Way too much stuff collected to wait any longer!  And it has been a very busy week away from home with ER visit, doctor visit, wedding rehearsal and the wedding later today!  But the apologetics ministry never sleeps.  Lets look at what I’ve come across this week.

The Good:
Falling From Grace.  Good article about the false teachings of the need for Christians to follow O.T. laws.

Responding to skeptics’ attack on Mark 2:26.  Part 1 and Part 2.

A good history of false teacher Aimee Semple McPherson, the person who originated the Four Square Gospel Church.

What’s the purpose of pastors?

The Bad:
Beth Moore called down fire from heaven.

Another reason to distance oneself from John Piper’s teachings.

The Ugly:
Ah, the heresy and apostasy of the UMC.

The Philadelphia Church of God is a non-Christian cult.

For those who doubt the full-blown apostasy of the Church of England.

Mark Driscoll — Sigh.  This narcissist really needs to leave the limelight and quit disgracing the Christian faith.

An example of all that has been wrong about Roman Catholicism — murdering people who disagree with Catholic dogma.
