Don’t Be Scandalized When Christians Debate One Another in Love

 

Justin Taylor:

John Stott on what Christians should do when they disagree with each other:

The proper activity of professing Christians who disagree with one another is neither to ignore, nor to conceal, nor even to minimize their differences, but to debate them.

We are “to maintain the truth in love,” being neither truthless in our love, nor loveless in our truth, but holding the two in balance.

—From John Stott, Christ the Controversialist (Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1970), pp. 22, 19.

I am currently serving churches and colleges as a bible teacher, overseas and in the UK.
