A Time to Draw Swords

Jesus told them, “Are you not deceived because you don’t know the Scriptures or the power of God?” – Mark 12:24


Private and corporate anti-biblical heresy may originate from many sources. Sometimes it comes from long-held traditional beliefs and at other times from an agenda intended to deceive and/or abuse. One thing is certain, in every situation, heresy is only successful among those who do not comprehend God’s Word.

The greatest defense against error of any kind is truth. Those who do not possess God’s truth (and do not know where to find it) lie vulnerable and open to any and all deception. Powerless and defenseless, they become playthings in the hands of the enemy himself. If God’s Word is the sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6), then why should we be surprised when so many churches remain anemic, ineffective, and prone to error? We can do nothing of significance … we can win no battles … when our only offensive weapon remains sheathed.

It is time … high time … we drew “swords.”

Truth will ultimately prevail where there are pains to bring it to light. – George Washington
