Death of a Church

Category: Church Issues, Compromise, Quotes, Sin, Worldliness

“Death (of a Church) occurs when unbelievers are allowed to take over ministries in the church. It happens when a church becomes more concerned with form and liturgy than it is with life on a spiritual level. Death occurs when a church becomes more concerned about welfare and social ills than it is about salvation. [...]

If We Are Silent About These Things

Category: Compromise, Quotes, Sin, Sinner Sensitive

“…some will assure us that it is a waste of time preaching to modern hearers about the law and sin, for (it is said) such things mean nothing to them. Instead (it is suggested) we should appeal to the needs which they feel already, and present Christ to them simply as One who gives peace, [...]

Inferior Religion

Category: Compromise, Quotes, Worldliness

There has never been a time, since the Church of Jesus Christ was founded, when there has not been a vast amount of trivial and mere nominal religion among professing Christians. I am sure it is the case in the present day. Wherever I turn my eyes I see abundant cause for the warning, “Beware [...]

Jesus Christ and Him Crucified

Category: Compromise, Quotes

We do not preach “the atonement” as such, or “salvation,” “redemption,” or “justification” as such, but Jesus Christ and him crucified. These blessings were accomplished by Christ and are available only in Christ, never abstracted from him. We must learn to avoid the contemporary plague of preaching the benefits of the gospel without proclaiming Christ [...]

No Compromise, by John MacArthur

Category: Church Issues, Compromise

It was Martin Luther who said: “The world at the present time is sagaciously discussing how to quell the controversy and strife over doctrine and faith, and how to effect a compromise between the Church and the Papacy. Let the learned, the wise, it is said, bishops, emperor and princes, arbitrate. Each side can easily [...]

How do we appropriately present the gospel to a world with so many varying world views? Is the church recontextualizing or redefining the unchanging gospel? In this video Jacob Prasch from Moriel Ministries explains how the church of Laodicea, the final church mentioned in Revelation 3, really is (as it’s name means) the church of [...]

Skipping the Cross, by Todd Pruitt

Category: Compromise, Word Faith, Worldliness

Most of the people who read this are aware of and have rejected what is commonly known as “the prosperity gospel.” This heresy of “name it, claim it” is advanced by such false teachers as Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, and Joyce Meyer. Basically, they teach an ancient heresy that claims we [...]

The Distortion of Divine Love – John Piper

Category: Compromise, Quotes, Worldliness

Today—as in every generation—it is stunning to watch the shift away from God as the all-satisfying gift of God’s love. It is stunning how seldom God himself is proclaimed as the greatest gift of the gospel. But the Bible teaches that the best and final gift of God’s love is the enjoyment of God’s beauty. [...]

Category: Compromise, Grace, Persecution, Quotes, Scripture, Sin, Worldliness

Jesus Christ, who was in the beginning with God, and was God (John 1:1), created the universe.  He did this as God the Father’s equal and as his agent.  “All things were made through him” (John 1:3; 1Corinthians 8:6; Hebrews 1:2).  And he did it to display his glory.  “By him all things were created….and [...]

World, Christians Have Same Behavior Patterns

Category: Church Issues, Compromise, Discernment, Quotes, Sinner Sensitive, Worldliness

The following quote comes from OldTruth “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world.” This sentence in Romans 12:2 has two key words: “world,” which is actually “age” (aion, meaning, “this present age” in contrast to “the age to come”); and “do not conform,” which is a compound having at its root [...]

Worldliness in the Church

Category: Compromise, Quotes, Worldliness

“Many in the church today believe that the only way to reach the world is to give the unchurched multitudes what they want. . . Subtly the overriding goal is church attendance and worldly acceptability rather than a transformed life. Preaching the Word and boldly confronting sin are seen as archaic, ineffectual means of winning [...]
