The Fellowship Of The Unashamed (Revised) I am part of the Fellowship of the Unashamed. I have strength in the Lord and the power of His might. The pattern has been fixed. I have made the decision to make Jesus Lord. I am a disciple and a soldier of Jesus Christ. I belong to Him, mind, body, and soul. I won’t look up, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. There is a world lost in sin, and only the one true gospel can make a difference. I’m not all I ought to be, what I want to be, or what I am going to be; but thank God that by His grace, I am not what I used to be. I am finished with low living, sight walking, blind eyes, smooth knees, lazy preaching, deaf ears, compromised beliefs, and politically correct talking. I will not give in to human religion rather than embracing New Testament Christianity. I am weary of scoffers who believe they have something better than God’s way or God’s will. I am finished with the notion that the Lord’s church has to change its doctrine, or it can’t grow. I have seen with my own eyes that the Gospel still works, the blood still cleanses, God still answers prayers, and the promises of God still hold true. I am finished with foolish ways. I will do more than listen to the Lord; I will carefully obey Him. I will do more than speak for what is right; I will speak against what is wrong. I will do more; I will preach the truth without fear to anyone and everyone. I am finished with doubting. I will believe every word of every sentence of every verse of every chapter of every book is inspired, God breathed, and is utterly trustworthy. And my faith is without apology.

I am finished being wise in my own eyes, I know I do not have a better way. I will not lean on my understanding but will trust God, who knows what I do not know and can see what I cannot see. I will stand against the compromising of doctrine, the tolerating of human traditions, the offering of false hope, and flirting with socially popular religion. I know there is one way to heaven, the narrow way. I am unwilling to support any church but the Lord’s church, any way but the Lord’s way, any gospel but the Lord’s gospel, any baptism but the Lord’s baptism, or any teaching but the Lord’s teaching. I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I have the love of Christ, the grace of God, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. My pace is set and fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my guide reliable, and my mission clear. I will not be bought, compromised, deterred, pulled away, turned back, diluted, or delayed. There are too many souls at stake, and my Lord deserves better. I will not flinch in the face of heresy, hesitate in the face of error, negotiate at the table of the enemy, pander to the popular, or meander in the maze of the muddy. I won’t give up, back up, let up, or shut up until I have preached up, prayed up, stored up, and stayed up the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I must go until Heaven returns, serve until I drop, preach until everyone knows, and work until He comes. And when He comes to get His own, I pray I will hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Truth without compromise always! God Bless -Todd
