Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C. Ryle ----- [NEW AND IMPROVED BLOG UNDER CONSTRUCTION]

10:44 AM - Christian, Are You Good for Nothing?

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.”
Matthew 5:13


DEAR CHRISTIAN: I Wonder If Jesus Would Say, “You’re Good For Nothing?”

By Doug Giles

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus told His followers that He expected them to be salt, and that if they weren’t, then they were good for nothing. Boom.

I know that doesn’t fit with the progressive’s bearded lady Jesus, but these are the recorded original words of the rebel from Galilee. Yep, Jesus, in his wonderful word-picture way, essentially said to his apprentices, you had better be culturally effective or you’re fired! And you thought that Trump was brutal.

Anything but meek, Christ condemned weak stances with respect to courage and truth and condoned only the bold. The Analogy Master said we’re to fret, bite, preserve and spice things up, just like salt.  The prophets, apostles and post-biblical stalwarts of positive biblical change were salty dogs. They were raw and fiery. They were not genteel placaters of the people. You were not going to forget what the biblical heavyweights said or go to sleep while they said it.
