Civility without Compromise

“In order to elevate Christianity, it is not necessary to vilify heathenism. To exalt revelation, we need not try to show that natural religion has no truths. To exhibit the blessings of the Advent, it is not needful to demonstrate that man was brutalized without it. It is a poor, cowardly system which can only rise by the degradation of all others.”  _Sermons Preached at Trinity Chapel, Brighton by Frederick W. Robertson Volume 1 (1861)

The ONE THING for today: This is the spirit and tone I pray will mark my life and ministry and every minister and member of Christ’s Church –

Civility without compromise.

Surly it can be done.
