Two in one day. But this spurred me...

Mind blowingly awesome and humble post on evangelical outpost today about people fighting with other Christians.

Serious dudes and dudettes - read it.

hello lepremo

i like your tactic of 'i can't be bothered writing so go and read this'. nice. although was worthwhile.
i now know that in order to refrain from becoming a wife-beater that i should engage in much more meaningless banter. no problem.

There is obviously something in the water in Cincinnatti. Or however you spell it.

I need to get myself back there.

Thanks for posting that. I've been chatting with my vicar recently about the importance of unity and our place in making it happen by showing humility.

It does raise the question, though, of where we are to draw lines between agreeing to disagree with someone, and deciding to say "I think you're wrong- let's talk about this".

Any wisdom on that?

Wisdom? Not really.

All I can say is that when I spend more time thinking and discussing and "beating up on" fellow believers than I do getting the truth about the wonder and beauty of Jesus out to the world there is something wrong.

In genuine Christian relationships I'm not sure we ever have to say "let's agree to disagree anyway." If I am a Christian I will just love you, which will mean sometimes talking to you about stuff we disagree on. And sometimes not. I'm not sure a rule of thumb about when to do that and when not to do it can be hepfully developed outside the relationship with the particular person.

Hi Mo, liked the article.
Yes it does seem that almost anything christians do will get crisitsed by other christians, whether its old or new, tis a real problem.
I think two quotes come to mind:
1) I you don't have anything good to say dont open your mouth
2) If your not part of the solution your part of the problem.
I TRY as much as possible to do this and be open minded (to certain extent) when i dont i still dont think you should get your stones out or start lighting the pyres, that realy doesnt lok good to those outside the Church.
