It starts here,
Man A says, “The scripture means this.”
Man B says, “You’re wrong; I’m right.”
Man C says, “Interesting; tell me more.”
Man D says, “Maybe yes, maybe no?”
Man E says, “You’re a heretic and a liar!”
The screaming of Man E
Whether right or wrong on interpretation,
may voices question motives
Christians condemning Christians
make God look good.
Grace in the discussion
is a more godly path
for advancing the Kingdom.
I wish we could
May it begin
What will I say?
Let every word you speak
be drenched with grace and tempered with truth and clarity.
For then you will be prepared
to give a respectful answer
to anyone who asks about your faith.

When you disagree on scripture interpretations,
how do you still hold to truth
without maligning others’ character?
