You conceive chaff,
    you give birth to straw;
    your breath is a fire that consumes you.
    —Isaiah 33:11 (NIV)
    ... the world cares nothing about doctrine. And that is especially true in the second half of the 20th century when, on the basis of their epistemology, men no longer believe even in the possibility of absolute truth. And if we are surrounded by a world which no longer believes in the concept of truth, certainly we cannot expect people to have any interest in whether a man’s doctrine is correct or not.
    ... Francis A. Schaeffer (1912-1984), The Mark of the Christian, Inter-Varsity Press, 1976, p. 16 (see the book)
    See also Isa. 33:11; Jer. 6:16-17; 18:18; John 8:43-45; Gal. 1:6-8; 1 Tim. 4:7,16; 2 Tim. 4:3-4; Tit. 1:9; 2 Pet. 1:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, save Your world from the false doctrines that assault it.
