by Moody Adams “It is easier and more comfortable just to teach and preach about the blessings of our common salvation than it is to contend for the faith, but the latter is more 'needful'," said Henry Morris.
The Bible commands us to “contend for the faith:” "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3).
Insist on that faith “delivered unto the saints,” over 1,900 years ago. Do not allow any variance in doctrine. Declare that faith. Do not preach anything but those teachings.
Argue for the faith “delivered unto the saints.” Do not sit back and allow people to teach other things without arguing with them and showing the error of their teachings.
When Christians cease to battle for the faith, Satan will slip in and steal the truth and leave the Church powerless.
Contending for the faith will not gain you favor with masses of people, but will gain you great favor with God.
