“Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints” (Jude 3).

In a culture that worships at the golden calf of self-serving individualism, most seek and embrace a religious expression they have fashioned for themselves and consider to be unique. To be a follower of Christ, however, is to subscribe to a common set of historic beliefs held by preceding generations for 2000 years of Christian history. A personal faith should never be understood as personalized beliefs.
