"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND THE FAITH which was once delivered unto the saints." (Jude 1:3)
--The world has been infected with satan's lies long enough. Can we not see that he took Jesus' love for the world and misrepresents it as a sign of...complete passiveness rather than tough love? For Jesus called out the pharasees, the saducees, and the scribes for what they all are: "serpents & vipers"!!. Most of the time that Jesus was on earth spent during his ministry was spent on debating and rebuking evil! Though He taught us love, He also taught us to debate and to rebuke! --But satans' influence of the world has it so that ALL professing Christians must act in complete silence and cannot enter in debate or even contend for their faith. For when we do, we are called 'NON-Christian-like' followers of Jesus. Which is half truths again. --If we don't speak out what is right and what is truth, then what is the point of being a follow of Christ; for He is the 'truth, the way, and the life'. --Voice out His Truth and correct them who are in error! If your child is in error, would you not correct them? --Come, join, speak out, and CONTEND THE FAITH! And bring honor to the name of our Lord!
2 Kings 10:30 "30 The LORD said to Jehu, “Because you have done well in executing what is right in My eyes, and have done to the house of Ahab according to all that was in My heart, your sons of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.”
