Email Tips: Don’t Be an Enemy

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, April 24th, 2010 .

While the law places barriers between one nation
and another, God’s grace gives us the privilege
to freely communicate the truth with everyone
despite denomination, culture, or color.

Do not portray yourself as someone’s enemy
just because they are Catholic, Pentecostal, Muslim,
or Atheist. The battle is not against flesh and blood,
but spiritual wickedness (Eph 6:12).

Our mission is not to destroy each other, but rather
to deliver souls alive in Christ from their doctrinal
snares. This is done with sound doctrine, carefully
applied to the pressure points of their ignorance.

Swinging your doctrinal sword in anger may win
the day, but it will not convince the man. Be gentle,
apt to teach, so that we might by all means
save some (1 Cor 9:22).

For his glory,

Justin Johnson
