“My way or the highway.” “I’m right but you are wrong,” etc.
Most don’t like those who hold such views. But is this consistent? Think about this for a moment. Suppose there are persons who teach that America should embrace the gay lifestyle, and others say, we shouldn’t. Aren’t both sides saying that the other is wrong? Aren’t both sides saying “it’s my way or the highway?” They sure aren’t saying “we both are correct.”
There is truth, and there is error, and we are standing on one or the other. There is no reason to get upset with a person defending what he believes to be the truth of a matter. However, when the standard by which truth is confirmed has spoken, one must either admit wrong or be guilty of hanging onto an error after being exposed. The standard could be a dictionary, if two are debating the meaning of a word; or it could be the Bible, if two are debating what God demands. Either way, the standard will settle the matter if men will allow it.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
