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 on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh." -Jude v.22-23
Whoa. Big words. Most often we like to distill our evangelism into one strong draught leaving no room for an alternative. The corner evangelist shouting "turn or burn" often leaves no room for compassion and sometimes takes uninformed shots at the person who is following Christ closely. Likewise the soft-touch minister may watch a parade of souls march past him in utter ignorance, being mortified by the thought of preaching a hard but truthful message on the human relationship with sin and death. This much is certain - it is the goodness of God that draws us to repentance AND He is good to us when he speaks truth to each of us about our wretchedness. May our Lord give us discernment, patience, kindness, and boldness.
