All you have to do is get in a closer walk with God and you’ll find your enemies are in your own church.
Leonard Ravenhill (1907–1994)
About Greg Coleman
I am a Particular Baptist who affirms the absolute sovereignty of the triune Godhead in all things. The fullness of the Godhead dwells in the God-man Jesus Christ. He is the Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, Disposer and Judge of all that ever was, is now or ever shall be. Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and men. He was made to be sin for his people and saved them from their sins by his substitutionary, sacrificial death on the cross thereby satisfying the justice and wrath of God against them. The sufficiency of his death to the satisfaction of God’s justice is proven by his physical resurrection from the dead and enthronement in glory at the right hand of the Father. Jesus Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
You couldn’t have said it better. This is sad, but when I am speaking truth, I get more love and kindness from the world than I do my own brethren. My own brethren attack me, ridicule me, accuse me of judgment and hatred when I speak the truth of God’s word with kindness. They become defensive, argumentatitve, and proud. This ought not to be.
How someone responds to God’s truth says a lot about their maturity in Christ, and their knowledge of God’s Word. A wise man will love you when you correct him…A fool will hate you. Those in between will respond in a variety of ways as mentioned above.
