“It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error.
It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, then falsehood that comforts and then kills.
It is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God.
It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie.
It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.
It’s better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with a multitude.
It is better to ultimately succeed with truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie.”
— Adrian Rogers

When you go to church what do you hear? Sermons on sin or sermons that make you feel good. We need to hear the truth coming from preachers today. If you have a Pastor that preaches about sin and redemption, encourage him. If you do not hear anything but social gospel, maybe you should find another church.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
