2 Timothy Two: Let’s Fight!

Posted: October 7, 2011 in 2 Timothy

Ok, I gotta be honest. Me and Paul wouldn’t have gotten along very well last year, or the few years before that, because I was a total jerk when it came to theological convictions. Man, I could run my opponent to the ground, or back them into an inescapable theological corner. I was the master apologist, and I didn’t care who my truth hurt as I battled for sound doctrine.

But this isn’t at all the right attitude for believers to have. We aren’t called to ignore error, but we are called to correct it gently in hopes that God will work in the heart of the other person. Let’s remember that the next time we engage in theological Mortal Kombat with other believers.
