We believe that it is important to be thoughtful when considering God's Word, the Bible. We hope you will check back from time to time for thoughts on God's Word and how it applies to us daily.
"I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to have the preeminence among them, does not receive us." -3 John v.9
We may find it surprising, even appalling, that a legitimate eye witness to the risen Christ, one who had given so much for the edification of the saints, would now be suppressed and contended against in his own time by a legitimate poser. This truth is applicable for every age. Men will seek to exalt themselves and control the message of the church at all costs, especially when that message - the gospel - threatens their position or livelihood. It is astounding how quickly after the resurrection the church became a place for false teachers, wolves, and enemies of true scriptural doctrine. May God give us discernment in these matters and protect us from deception.
