In case you're wondering, I do think it is worthwhile for Christians to discuss these grey areas. I do think it's worthwhile for Pastors to teach on them. I think we need to talk about the hard stuff in order to grow deeper roots and stronger branches. Proverbs 27:17 says As iron sharpens iron so one person sharpens another. That, my friends, is not a pretty image. When iron sharpens iron, sparks fly and horrible noises are made. But both tools emerge stronger and better built for their purpose. It is the same with Christians and discussing these issues. They may be uncomfortable, they may convict, they may even sting a little. But if they can be discussed lovingly, without accusation or judgment, then both will emerge stronger and better built for their purpose.
As You See...
...I have an opinion on pretty much everything. Life is filtered through my rose colored glasses. It's just the way I see it.
