Have We Given Up The Fight?

As I talk with people, I find that more and more are laying aside sound doctrine and embracing a watered-down gospel. More and more Christians are getting weary, tired of defending their Biblical faith to those who have only weak faith in a small god. By the boatload, Christians are giving up their strong and true faith to embrace a small god who loves you no matter what and isn't too concerned about sin, but just wants you to be happy and prosperous and have a good life. Throngs of Christians have given up the faith of their fathers and have ignored the Biblical mandate to stay strong in the faith, to defend it, and to fight the good fight. Have you given up the fight?

Let's see what happens when things get much more difficult to stand up for our faith. It makes me sad and I fear for many...

1 Peter 5:12 "...exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God. Stand firm in it!"

Amen! Reminds me of 2 Timothy 4:3 - "For the time is coming when people will not endure sound[a] teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions." And so he says to "preach the Word!"
Sadly, it's nothing new in our world.

That's a verse that came to my mind, too, Elizabeth.
