6 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 5 PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
I too have been the bull many, many times. I was accused of wielding the word of God as a battle axe, instead of a sword. Great read brother!

8 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 7 PrayingPraying


If His (not my) Word is an atomic bomb, so be it. It has the power to change minds and hearts and quicken the spirit. The motivation to present it is what counts. Is it out of obedience to our Master? ( we are commanded to). Is it motivated by The Holy Spirit? Is it out of love for the lost?

I too have been the proverbial bull. When I consider why, it comes down to pride. "My" knowledge. "Oh I'm so much smarter than you heathen". Hmmm?

And don't forget this either...Yet Michael when confronted by satan would only reply The Lord rebuke you.

Love and exhortation brothers!

3 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 6 PrayingPraying


There is that fine line of arguing for the sake of arguing and presenting the gospel clearly in order to win the lost. Having been on the receiving end of being evangelized, I have learned that some of the "weakest" appeals can hit home to a lost soul (in that case, me). I must be in prayer to God to keep myself from allowing my pride to hinder the work of the Holy Spirit.

Comments: Thanks for this article Alf!

I am passionate about what I believe and it comes on strong many times. I don't like to get on the defensive with regard to my faith but would rather be on the offensive in a most skillful way. I have not learned to not take the attacks personally and I may never. God though, has given me witnessing situations where I have not lost my cool and the recipient of the gospel is prepared to receive without confrontation. Those experiences are the best for me.

This spirit of PC is most annoying and I'm amazed at how strong it is. It used to be that stirring the dander up was most rewarding and was beneficial within community but now it is most insensitive to get somebody's blood to boil or get stirred. And yet, people need to be shaken from their perches from time to time to re-evaluate their foundation.
