We learn enough to be obtuse
Let's hold the Lord to our doctrines
God can't be trapped by clever words
"Will we have mates with God
The Lesson - Luke 20:27-38
we cling to our favorite doctrines. Proof of the faultiness of
our views is our arrogance (though we rarely recognize the arrogance)
in holding them over the heads of our inferiors (though we would
insist we are humble). Millennial, tribulational, sacramental,
election, free will, and worship style to name a few
divide congregations and denominations.
To be sure, being correct in some doctrines is vital. But is it vital that you be correct when it is not a matter of salvation? Would you insist on being right if the result were to divide the Church? Jesus always has a strange answer for those who insist too loudly or cockily on their positions. Read the lesson and see what He did with the Sadducees cleverness. He will certainly have a similar answer for our divisive views.
