God has commanded us to preach all of His Word and to "reprove, rebuke, exhort" (2 Timothy 4:2). This is the preacher's divine standard. God has commanded us not only to believe sound doctrine, but also to earnestly contend for it (Jude 3). That means we are to fight agrressively against that which is false. This is exactly what we see in the uncompromising ministry of the Lord's Apostles. Their epistles contain strong and clear warnings about false teaching. Paul often named the names of the false teachers. Such a ministry naturally causes divisions between those who are committed to the truth and those who are following error. Paul made no effort whatsoever to avoid doctrinal controversy. The Holy Spirit warned that "evil men and seducers shalll wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived" (2 Timothy 3:13).
No other man, born of a woman, has gathered around His claims and character such a large amount of literature as Jesus Christ. The Apostle John made the statement that "the world could not contain the books that should be written" about His accomplishments (John 21:24,25). Libraries all over the world contain a mountain of books that been written of Him who came as -
The promised Messiah and Savior of the world;
The Founder of Christianity;
The Lord and Head of the Christian Church;
The complete Revelation of God to man.
Theologians, philosophers and poets have written about Christ, one way or the other, often forgetting that our concept of Him cannot be over-estimated because what He is determines what Christianity is., which stands or falls with Him. In all that He is, in Himself, the cornerstone of the Christian faith, the key to the battle between faith and unbelief.
