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

Weekend Warriors

“Rather than being well-trained, well-disciplined troops for Christ, many believers act more like reserve units: weekend warriors who are occupied with other things during the week and who just turn out for occasional drills or to hang out in officers’ clubs on Sundays.”  A Dangerous Grace, by Chuck Colson with Nancy R. Pearcy, p. 61
What about you: are you a weekend warrior or have you decided to join the Regulars on active duty?

Hi Glenn! I am on active duty with the Regulars. I wrote about this in my blog post here: http://reflectionsruminationsrecollections.blogspot.com/2010/07/8-days-week.html.
