The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

James White – Mr. Apologetics Misfires – Part 2 « God's Hammer

Sean Gerety in 2008 said this in response to James R. White's criticism of John Robbins when Robbins soundly trounced upon the Roman Catholic, Robert Sungenis:

There are many examples in Scripture where Jesus demonstrates how we are to deal with false teachers and religious leaders who would attempt to undermine the simplicity and truth of the gospel. Take for example the many times Jesus made quick work of the Pharisees and Sadducees by exposing their hypocrisy while turning the tables on his adversaries who sought to trap him only to be trapped themselves. The examples in Matthew 22 alone should suffice. Beyond that, Paul tells us in Romans to “mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” Notice, we are not to entertain them or engage them for our own profit or for the entertainment of others. We are to mark and identify such persons as corrupter’s of the faith and avoid them.

In his letter to the Galatians Paul warns us about “false brethren who had sneaked in to spy out our liberty that we have in Christ Jesus, in order to bring us into bondage.” Yet, rather than having his ears tickled by such men Paul states, “But we did not yield in subjection to them for even an hour, so that the truth of the gospel might remain with you.” While men like Sungenis are more transparent and easy to identify than many “false brethren” (like those now infecting P&R churches), his entire reason for being is to bring Christians under the bondage of Rome.
