TELLING IT STRAIGHT
R.T. Ketcham (1889-1978), Baptist pastor wrote:
“Attend church, but do not attend a church which prefers science to Scripture, reason for revelation, theories for truth, culture for conversion, benevolence for blood, goodness for grace, sociability for spirituality, play for praise, pep for prayer, profession for possession, progress for power, reformation for regeneration, good for God, speculation for salvation, jubilation for justification, feelings for faith, paralysis for peace, politics for precepts.”
The Book of Proverbs says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.”
One can tell it straight and believe it is straight without becoming a legalist, Bible thumping, over bearing knucklehead. Truth is to be maintained with liberty and freedom… but not goofy truth.
“Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” Jesus
