A friend recently posed the following question:
i hope you don’t get surprised when i ask you questions yet im already a believer…any way is ok for a believer like me to get involved in argument about the bible with believers trying to correct them. Gilbert
Questions about whether something is okay or not seem to easily weigh us down, don’t they? I don’t live my life according to that whole perception of what is okay or not … rather, I have discovered that Christ being my life has everything to do with living as one who is alive. I am free to engage in discussions and arguments about the Bible, but it’s all so different from that old bondage. I’ve come to listen for what is really being said, and I found that there are usually other issues going on behind the scenes when people are arguing their doctrinal or scriptural views. So, I encourage you to listen with the living ears of the spirit who is your life!
