Drawing a Line in the Sand
In Romans 12:18, the Apostle Paul exhorts us, saying, "If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all." Christians are not to be cantankerous and difficult to get along with. Instead, we are to be people who seek harmony and relational peace whenever we can.
That does not mean, however, that we compromise the truth for the sake of peace. Peace that is not grounded in God's truth is no peace at all. There comes a time when we must draw a line in the sand, when we must stand firm for the foundational doctrines of our faith.
On June 8–9, 2012, Steven Lawson and John MacArthur will be joining R.C. Sproul at Ligonier Ministries' West Coast Conference to speak on the theme of "Standing Firm." We will explore several doctrines that define true Christianity, including biblical authority, the Trinity, the resurrection of Jesus, the exclusivity of Christ, justification by faith alone, the mortification of sin, and the existence of God. We must stand for these doctrines and refuse to give ground to those who deny these essential truths.
Please consider joining us for this conference in June. We hope to see you among the more than 1,000 already registered who will gather in Seattle for teaching, worship, prayer, and fellowship.
