If there was just one thing

Leave a Comment
Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!
I celebrated the new year at the Fellow Workers' Conference 09 : The Gospel & the church.

If there was just one thing that i learnt this weekend at FWC, it would be that the Truth cannot be sacrificed for the sake of peace. 

Thank God that it wasn't just one thing.

Expanding on that, i discovered things about the Truth that both convict me and disturb me at the same time (although arguably it's probably the conviction that disturbs me, so it's one thing). If i believe in something and i believe it to be the Truth, then therein lies an implication that anything other than the Truth is NOT the truth. And that's disturbing because... 

I cannot believe in something, and not affirm it or defend it when necessary. That (not affirming or defending the truth) would be equivalent to denying Truth. 

And effort needs to be put into preserving the Truth.


All in all, i had a good time at FWC, although it was a challenging one which attacked alot of what i subscribe and/or subscribed to. I have to seriously reconsider what the church is based on God's blueprint and align myself to that. 

Got to know a lot of new people as well as getting closer to those i already know and that has been fun =) It is always encouraging to know that there are people working alongside you in knowing the Truth and preserving it.
