October 10th 1995 the U.S. Chief of Navy Operations released the following actual radio conversation. The Captain of the U.S. Navy ship, seeing lights in the distance and thinking it was an oncoming ship, sent out the following message:
"Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision".

A message came back. "Recommend you divert YOUR course
15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision".

Again the Captain sent out a message. "This is the Captain of a U.S. Navy Ship.
I say again, divert YOUR course".

Again a reply came. "No, I say again you divert YOUR course".

Finally the Captain sent the strongest message he could muster. "This is the Aircraft Carrier Enterprise. We are a large warship of the U.S. Navy. Divert your course NOW".

The reply came back. "This is the Lighthouse. Your call".


The lighthouse was much smaller than the ship and had less people aboard.
But nobody could challenge the validity of its purpose. Other institutions can afford to change their position. But the lighthouse must not move one degree!

In our society today, there are obviously some big ships off course. There are lighthouses along the shore still faithfully beaming the light and guidance of heaven's unchanging laws. These are the churches and ministries that dare to tell the world what God says instead of what the people want to hear.

Remember, it is the ships that must change course! The Lighthouse will not move.
