Many believe that arguing scripture demonstrates its validity, Scripture details it’s not.
1 Timothy 4:7-1 (Living Bible)
“Don’t waste time arguing over foolish ideas and silly myths and legends. Spend your time and energy on the exercise of keeping spiritually fit.
8 Bodily exercise is all right, but spiritual exercise is much more critical and is a tonic for all you do. So exercise yourself spiritually and practice being a better Christian because that will help you not only now in this life but in the next life too.
9-10 This is the truth, and everyone should accept it. We work hard and suffer much in order that people will believe it, for our hope is in the living God who died for all, and particularly for those who have accepted his salvation.
Scripture confirms that to assault one another, like a catfight verbally, is neither practical nor productive.
Like a cat clawing at its opponent, the objective is to win, and when sharing the gospel, it’s not a competitor conflict but an act of love and godly service.
As disciples of Christ, we must be prepared by God to be grounded in His conviction and love. Faithful followers behave and present themselves as one approved.
2 Timothy 2:15
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
We teach, enlighten, confirm, and reply to reasonable questions with a loving heart. Backed by Christ’s self-control because without Him, we are incapable of verbal Integrity, and the flesh wins the war.
Recall Pauls’s words in 2 Timothy 2:14-26, “Remind them of these things and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good but only ruins the hearers.”
Foremost we teach of heavenly things and steward the Spiritual gifts as Christ’s Ambassadors.
Representatives of the truth, and when has any royal ambassador characterizing peace found arguing at any world summit?
Christ’s love attracts; it doesn’t deflect. Similarly, impartation occurs when the expression of love is bestowed rightly through Christ’s charity, confirming wisdom.
Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
We don’t owe lengthy explanations but share in the gospel’s truth and, through responsible and accountable, behavior allow God to do the rest.
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and training in righteousness.”
The Bible says not all are called to be teachers, and for this reason, strife only adds to the failing faith of a people in need of Christ’s love.
James 3:1 (KJV)
My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
Notedly, in the New Living Translation, the word is broken-down plainly.
James 3:1 (NIV)
“Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.”
The Lord calls and chooses out of the Brethren, which include the daughters of the highest.
“Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
1 Corinthians 1:28
God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are.
To nullify means to render invalid.
To those who teach things contradictory to the scriptures or in a way that does not represent love, additionally, with no Spiritual revelation has been the continued decimation of our church for centuries.
It is neither the way, nor will it be allowed to continue in future days to come. Christ is revealing the hidden things, both morally proper and that which is without His permission or consent.
