Quote of the day – Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson apparently said:

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

This reminds me of Paul’s statement of becoming like all people in order to win some. Of course Jefferson was no friend of Paul, being a Deist. I think many churches today are either so conservative that they refuse to adopt contemporary style or they are so liberal that they will change Christian principles in order to fit in with the crowd. May we be true to Jesus in what matters and flexible in what does not.
