Let us plant ourselves on the hill of Zion and invite the world to come over to us, but never under any circumstances will we go over to them. The cross is the symbol of Christianity, and the cross speaks of death and separation, never of compromise. No one ever compromised with a cross. The cross-separated between the dead and the living. The timid and the fearful will cry Extreme! and they will be right. The cross is the essence of all that is extreme and final. The message of Christ is a call across a gulf from death to life, from sin to righteousness and from Satan to God. The first step for any Christian who is seeking spiritual power is to accept his unique position as a son of heaven temporarily detained on the earth, and to begin to live as becometh a saint. The sharp line of demarcation between him and the world will appear at once — and the world will never quite forgive him. And the sons of earth will make him pay well for separation, but it is a price he will gladly pay for the privilege of walking in fruitfulness and power. – A.W. Tozer
“But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” Galatians 6:14

The Shorter Catechism
Q47: What is forbidden in the first commandment?
A: The first commandment forbiddeth the denying1, or not worshipping and glorifying the true God as God2, and our God3; and the giving of that worship and glory to any other, which is due to him alone4.
1. The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. (Psalms 14:1).
2. So that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified [him] not as God. (Romans 1:20b-21a).
3. But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. (Psalms 81:11).
4. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Romans 1:25).
