“Compromise has been a cancer in the church from its inception.”—David Levy

“A new Decalogue has been adopted by the neo-Christians of our day, ‘Thou shalt not disagree,’ and a new set of Beatitudes too, ‘Blessed are they that tolerate everything for they shall not be made accountable.’ ”— A. W. Tozer

Jesus cares about your church. He cares about this church. He cares what you do in this church.

He has judgement in his mouth. He speaks words of commendation or condemnation.

Revelation refreshes our perspective of the Resurrected Lord and give us a true portrait of Jesus Christ.
