I love the entire piece, but the last paragraph is magnificent--makes my heart sing!
There was no need to explain away using a passage from Tolkien to emphasize your point. He was a devout believer and most view the Lord of the Rings as a Christian allegory. Tolkien himself denied that it was intentionally written as such, but admitted that he deliberately poured out his faith and beliefs through the storylines and characters.

There were a lot of important points in your message. I was especially convicted regarding the vigilance for false teachers. They have been around since Paul was writing and will be around until the end of days. It's important we call it out when we see it, but to be spending our focus in finding and rooting it out, that's just another way the devil helps us to look around the plank in our own eye.

Great job!

God bless~
