Email Tips: Don’t Argue From Opinion

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, June 20th, 2009 .

Everyone has an opinion about the scripture. Without an
objective authority for truth two opinions can debate
indefinitely. Debates about doctrines go nowhere.

When you voice your beliefs be ready to have a verse
rightly divided to support for your position. God’s words
are your authority and credibility.

Avoid doctrinal conversations that are void of scriptural support.
These conversations sound like this:

“I think…”
“I believe…”
“My opinion is…”
“Everyone has their own interpretation…”

In reality, people believe things that are not in the Bible.
Do not be one of those people. Start your position
with “God says…” and read from the Bible.
