How do we have deep discussions as Christians if we have to fear being attacked by other Christians? I really have a lot of questions I want to ask. A topic I want to dig deeper into and yet, I don’t feel safe in doing so.
How do we know when our own pride is keeping us from seeing scripture clearly? Do our own agendas and feelings cloud what God’s word really says? Do our own convictions cause us to twist scripture to fit our needs? Can we both interpret the same scripture differently and both be “right”? If I feel personally convicted in something and another brother or sister in Christ does not feel convicted about it, does that mean they’re sinning? If we disagree on scripture, does that make one of us less of a Christian?
Yeah, I have a lot of tough questions. What are your thoughts? How do we do we ask the tough questions without becoming divisive? When do we become slaves to our own convictions that are perhaps not from God but seem righteous?
1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Gal 5:1
The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.
PS – If comments become personal attacks, I will remove them.
