Throw Rocks!

"Avoiding conflict is not always the right thing. Sometimes it is downright sinful. Particularly in times like these, when almost no error is deemed too serious to be excluded from the evangelical conversation, and while the Lord’s flock is being infiltrated by wolves dressed like prophets, declaring visions of peace when there is no peace (cf. Ezekiel 13:16). Even the kindest, gentlest shepherd sometimes needs to throw rocks at the wolves who come in sheep’s clothing." —John MacArthur

We are all in the battle.

We might as well fight when it is time to fight.

We are to hate evil...are we not?

Those who do not stand for the Truth, today in this wicked and perverse generation,will not stand in the day of judgement.The cheif purpose of man is to glorify God,how do we do that if we let the Truth (JESUS) be trampled underfoot by wicked men and say nothing.Father have mercy on us.
