Interesting statement

"The Gospel of Christ, in a world of sin and doubt, will cause disputing; and if it does not cause disputing and arouse bitter opposition, that is a fairly sure sign that it is not being faithfully proclaimed."

-J. Gresham Machen

Pretty bold statement. I don't know that I wholeheartedly agree with this statement but I still thought it was a good one.

Heck yes! Amen for this is so relevant to our times when society is doing everything to shove God out of everything and every wicked and evil desire in His place. "For God gave them over to a debased mind." and "They exchanged the truth of God for a lie." Rom 1:18-32 and to think how long ago Romans was written.

We've all experienced the hatefullness of the truth when the Light shines in the darkness. because men love the darkness.

We even tend to cringe when confronted with our own sin, for if it wasn't for the Holy Spirit we would too hate the truth. Praise God that He has called us, beloved, to His election and glory!!
