To set the record straight, not arguing with unbelievers and non-Christians doesn’t mean we Christians have to be open to their theologies or accept a saviour they are offering us, which is different from Jesus Christ.
Nowadays a lot of individuals says that “all religions lead to God, we are just taking different paths to meet God”. Some also say “all religions are the same, we believe in say thing but just in different ways”. WOW!!!! The contradiction is unreal. Am sorry but not all religions are the same and not all religions lead to God. In any way or form a Bible-believing Christians have bought into this, make sure you take back the receipt and get your conscience back.
1st Timothy 2:2-6
2: for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in everyway. 3: This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our saviour, 4: who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth 5: For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6: who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
6: Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7: If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
WHY SHOULDN’T WE AGRUE WITH unbelievers AND non-Christians AS CHRISTIANS?
A natural human response to a situation of being confronted about one’s belief will generally result to arguing with the other party about it claims. I HAVE BEEN GUILTY OF THIS AS WELL!. But we shouldn’t. Why?, because Jesus Christ made it clear enough and more so Apostles Paul made it clear when writing letter to Titus, His true child in common faith, who was just a Christian like us in the book of Titus 3:9-11 that:
9: But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. 10: As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, 11: knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
In addition, although the context of the verse below is for workers approved by God, in a way we all are, so I had no choice but to include verses 14 to 19 of 2nd Timothy Chapter 2 which says:
14: Remind them of these things, and charge them before God not to quarrel about words, which does no good, but only ruins the hearers. 15: Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 16: But avoid irreverent babble, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness, 17: and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18: who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some. 19: But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.
Hopefully this will persuade you to fully lay back in arguments about religions, what a bible verse means and so on, but always stand up for Christ Jesus in winning souls and standing up in situations that will lead to an unbeliever or non-Christian to being saved.
Thanks, and KEEP THE FAITH STRONG!.
