Napsal(a) Rev. George McCurdy and Rev. Martin Pennington
A church cannot serve two masters. It cannot peacefully coexist with truths and falsities. To want to live with both and to seek a compromise will cause the church to be laid to waste. The church will perish, and the goods and truths of the Word will be taken away from it.

Like other common verbs, the meaning of "fall" is highly dependent on context in regular language, and is highly dependent on context in a spiritual sense as well. People fall on their faces in prayer, fall in battle, fall on others to attack them and fall on each other's necks in greeting. Stars fall from the sky, mountains fall on people, cities fall, and even faces fall. There's a lot of falling, in very different circumstances.
In a very general sense, falling means a lowering in spiritual state, from one closer to the Lord to one further. This is subtle when people fall on their faces in prayer – showing humility, and an acknowledgement of their own low state – and when they fall on each other's necks, indicated a communication between the two spiritual states. At the other end of the scale, it illustrates complete spiritual destruction in the fall of a city.
