Christians must continue to proclaim their faith

Editor, the Advocate:
"Dear friends, since I am eager to begin a letter to you on the subject of our common salvation, I find myself contrained to write and cheer you on to the vigorous defense of the faith delivered once and for all to God's people. For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, men spoken of in ancient writings as pre-destined to this condemnation, ungodly men, who pervert the grace of our God into an excuse for immorality, and disown Jesus Christ, our only sovereign and Lord." This is a quote from verses 3 and 4 of the book of Jude from the New Testament of the Bible. Those who follow Jesus and God's word must continue to proclaim their faith in creator God and his son. God's word is God's final authority, and no amount of justifying sin by man-made laws will ever make God's word null or void.
