“Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” -Charles Spurgeon

Wise words. Good quote brother.

Underdog Theology said...

A gift that is truly needed in the Church in our times, especially as apostate, heretical, and diabolical doctrine is ushered in under the banner of evangelicalism.

More anathemas would be ringing as this Church-edifying and God-glorifying gift is exercised in the sway of the Spirit.
