Picking Our Issues
We receive numerous requests to address a variety of things that are adversely influencing the church today. Obviously, as apostasy increases at a seemingly explosive rate, we have neither enough time nor staff nor media space to keep up with the requests, or even with the issues that we recognize ourselves. Therefore, we rely mainly on two criteria: 1) We select beliefs, practices, movements, or agendas that seem to be undermining the faith of large numbers of Christians, and 2) we consider lesser-known books or teachers whose erroneous doctrinal content become opportunities for instruction in biblical discernment.
We try to cover as much as we can in order to help inform the body of Christ regarding problematic issues. However, our primary objective is to encourage our readers to exercise their own biblical discernment just as the Bereans of Acts:17:11 did. To that end, all of us need to be continually in prayer, disciplined in reading the Scriptures, and willing to do what God’s Word says.
