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]

7:47 PM - Jesus The ‘Intolerant Bigot’

Does the world hate you?

It should.

We can't belong to the world and to Christ.

We must choose.

By J. Matt Barber

"The Gospel of Christ doesn't care about 'tolerance.' It cares about truth."

These words caused me to look up from my Bible Gateway app where I was reading along with selected scriptures. Matt Short, missions pastor at One Community Church in Lynchburg, Virginia, had just uttered from the pulpit a profound reality that, regrettably, we hear far too infrequently from this millennial generation (or any generation for that matter).

After several weeks of having worshiped with this young church body, I've been repeatedly shocked, and pleasantly so, that, under the headship of lead pastor Paul Dudley and, clearly, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, this group of faithful 20 and 30-somethings does not sidestep truth, in love, as concerns transcendent issues that in today's politically correct and postmodern culture (to include much of Christianity) are considered highly controversial.

Pastor Short judiciously stacked his words ­ words that blossomed from the very Vine of Truth Himself ­ upon that elusive sweet spot in the tense continuum between truth and grace: two central features of Christ's nature that are neither mutually exclusive nor at odds with one another.

"There is nothing new under the sun," we are reminded in Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Indeed, by today's secular-progressive standards ­ and, more vexing yet, by the standards of lukewarm Christians and ministries that, under the intense thaw of postmodern paganism, fall away from the berg like vast chunks of ice ­ Christ Jesus Himself would, like so many of his followers today, be slandered as an "intolerant bigot" and crucified all over again.
