Yielding Truth at Church For The Sake of Unity

“Nowhere in Scripture is there any intimation given that it could be pleasing to God, or even excusable in His sight, to yield any portion of the revealed truth to satisfy the desires of men who object to it. On the contrary the Scriptural requirement is first and chief that Christian people stand fast in the Christian faith, and beware of false prophets, who would lead them away from the truth and ultimately from the Savior, who is the way and the truth and the life.

“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 to the saints.” Jude 3.
