Friend , the above quote of yours is not the way to start off a post towards another brother or sister .
It is rather belittling .
I have pondered now for many days why one would take offense in a chat room amongst fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, or in any chat room, or discussion for that matter. If we take offense. Why? Where does this offense come from? What is it that is making us angry with someone else discussing God's word? God Almighty will deal with the ones that are wicked. Why feel the need to engage in tactics of the wicked? Are our weapons carnal?
When did it become "belittling" to start a chat in a Christian chat room, or topic with the words "I believe." Is it my beliefs that are belittling to you? Or, is it the fact that I have beliefs that belittle? We are discussing the Bible. Can we not discuss as Men and Women? Must we give in to insults? To accuse one another of committing sins is playing judge. Insisting that they are wrong based off of our understanding. I thank the Lord that he is the judge, and my only one.
To accuse another of committing a sin of pride is a powerful accusation. One that would be extremely difficult to discern in a chat room without interacting directly with the person. It is important that we do not attack one another for a few reasons. One reason would be that when we give in to our flesh and act out in anger we are only causing strife and discord.
Proverbs 13:10 - Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
We are discussing some very impactful doctrine in the word of our Lord. It is so impactful, that it can change the speed at which our relationship develops with the Lord himself. It is crucial that in dark times such as these that we be able to discern and receive the engrafted word with humility.
If we decide to turn on our own brothers and sisters in Christ, or any other person for that matter, then it is possible that we may be taking from others that which they may need and not reflecting the love and comfort of Jesus Christ. Everyones walk is different. We also have our own personal interpretations for what the scripture means. Others may have gained some insight through something the Lord has revealed to them through his word. It is imperative that we be slow to speak, quick to listen, slow to anger.
James 1:26 - If any man among you seems to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but decieveth his own heart, this man's religion is in vain.
