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

Some Edifying Things

Once again it is time to post a collection of good articles about the Faith.

An interesting passage of Scripture — 1 Timothy 2:15 — has always been a curiosity to me, and I have read so many commentaries about it that I can’t remember them all!  I don’t think even the theologians really understand it.  Denny Burk posted an interesting commentary a few weeks ago, which you may find thought-provoking.

The printed New Testament Greek text has celebrated its 500th anniversary.

A bit deeper reading is an examination of the historical contexts of Genesis 2:7 - 3:8.  Yes, the passage is real history.

I was pointed to a very good article by John MacArthur about the wife’s role in the home, and whether it is proper for her to work outside the home.

Be very aware of the 8 Ways the Enemy Attacks Churches.
