Re: Confrontation of Truth

Truth demands confrontation; loving confrontation, but confrontation nevertheless. If our reflex action is always accommodation regardless of the centrality of the truth involved, there is something wrong. Just as what we may call holiness without love is not God's kind of holiness, so also what we may call love with out holiness, is not God's kind of love. God is holy and God is love....A false spirit of accomodation is sweeping the world as well as the Church, including those who claim the label of evangelical. --Francis Schaeffer

"..just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love...that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head; Christ.." (Eph 1:4,4:14-15)

Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 1:3)

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before Him. (1 Jn3:18-19) (VW)
