So encouraged by these faithful men

Have loved hearing these men speak on the events of our day. I am always convicted by how careful and gentle they are to really call anyone out— but they are also unafraid of stating the truth, with the hope that it calls their brothers and sisters in the faith to repentence. Really appreciate their work here. Particularly encouraging that though I respect so many churches who have stepped away from the SBC, and understand why they have; Tom Ascoll faithfully keeps calling to the SBC the truths that God has given us and hopes for a better day for the SBC.

Whitewashed sepulchers

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.”
—Matthew 23:27 (KJV)
