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:

Excellent article about the Roman Catholic Eucharist.  If you haven’t read my article on this topic, you might also find it to be of value.

The Bad:
The Gospel Coalition often surprises me with apostate ideas. Now they think church should be a “safe space” for homosexuals.

The Roman Catholic propaganda movie, The Passion of the Christ, is having a sequel made.  I’m sure it won’t be any more of a solid biblical presentation than the original.  I think I’ll save my money and read the book. For another review of “The Passion…”, this one is much more thorough mine.

Uh boy, the nonsensical Enneagram is coming back in style.

Jen Hatmaker and “de-conversion” stories.

A church of the apostate ELCA denomination is assisting an Islamic terrorist organization!! 

The Ugly:
A good history of the Roman Catholic doctrine of indulgences.  It’s a long read, but very informative.

The Episcopal Church continues to demonstrate its totally apostate condition.

At the source of the New Apostolic Reformation is the late Bob Jones — and this short video shows what a false teacher/prophet he was.

Paula White — this woman is spiritually dangerous!!!  And this is who supposedly led President Trump to Christ.  I really doubt that Trump has a true understanding of the Gospel.

This is beyond words — only shock and amazement at such stupidity.  I guess when you have an agenda, anything goes.

Finally, more proof that not only is Perry Noble not qualified to be a pastor, but it’s extremely doubtful that he is even a Christian.

Well, it certainly appears that folks who stand against apologetics have ironically devised their own methods of apologetics for not engaging in apologetics. Now, that is self-contradictory!

Glenn - the link to the Hatmaker post was excellent and very helpful. This tendency to drift from the faith, and the accompanying reasons for it and change in attitude, is a hallmark of the survivor blog community and its commentariat.
