>Truth Demands Confrontation

>In view of allegations, cross-allegations, protestations, gee-why-can’t-we-all-get-along-tions and so much more; these words are timely though written decades ago:

“Truth demands confrontation; loving confrontation, but confrontation nevertheless. If our reflex action is always accommodation, regardless of the centrality of the truth involved, there is something wrong. Just as what we may call holiness without love is not God’s kind of holiness, so also what we may call love without holiness, is not God’s kind of love…A false spirit of accommodation is sweeping the world as well as the Church, including those who claim the label of evangelical.”

Francis A. Schaeffer

>Tolerance Can Be Treachery

>
There is a toleration which is treachery. There is a peace which issues in paralysis. There are hours when the Church must say NO to those who should ask communion with her, in the doing of her work, upon the basis of compromise. Such standing aloof may produce ostracism and
persecution; but it will maintain power and influence…The reason why men do not look to the Church today is that she has destroyed her own
influence by compromise.
