What happen to cordial debate? When one disagrees with another the proper way is to allow each opposing side to present their argument and once that is done, rebuttals can be presented in an orderly session.
I say this because there was a public gathering in Russellville, Arkansas, this past weekend where those who believe that marriage is a union of one man and woman met at the courthouse to give speeches on the subject.
When the same sex advocates heard about it, they showed up in huge numbers and began to shout the speakers down. That shouldn’t had been done. In any dispute, people must be orderly as they seek a conclusion.
If there is yelling and name calling, rude attempts to silence another point of view, there will be all kinds of confusion and evil work (James 3:13-18).
As it has been said, each person must be allowed to present their arguments without being disrespected. All men have a right to speak and a right to be heard. And refuting a position can always be done; as long as it is done decently and in order (1 Corinthians 14:40). Let us all learn to respect the other while they are speaking (1 Cor. 14:29-31).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
