Jesus’ brother, Jude, in his epistle “to those who are called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ,” charged us to ‘contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.’ (v. 1,3) He warned believers that “certain persons have crept in unnoticed.’“(v.4)
Today, we find these, ‘certain persons,’ to be everywhere. Their books are in Christian book stores; their Bible studies in our churches; they are speaking at conferences; leading church ministries and writing in Christian magazines.
Jesus warned us, however, that we are to ‘”beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-16)
This blog is to help expose the “unfruitful deeds of darkness.” (Ephesians 5:11); to aid you in picking from ‘every good tree [which] bears good fruit.’ (Matthew 7:17) It is our prayer that we will be a resource to those who are “seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1)

In His service…
