Avoid Argument

”But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for
they are unprofitable and vain.“
We live in interesting times, when people have many different ideas about the truth or facts . A
few years ago, what fact is is incontrovertible , for example what is right and wrong, what exists
in the realm of fiction and reality, it is important to distinguish between scientifically proven facts
and politically motivated speculation which are designed to appeal to emotions and beliefs, they
cannot be held to the same scrutiny as scientific propositions. Fact is not dependent on
individual beliefs but universal, what is the fact in Asia, if tested in Europe or America and Africa
will be found the same. If it is not universally factual then it cannot satisfy the condition of being
a fact. The claim of alternative facts about Jesus is absurd and is script from the pit of hell!
There are those who believes that Jesus Christ is not the Messiah, and have come up with all
sorts of theories to support their claims, however, it is absolutely clear that these theories are not
only shallow but have holes all over them. For example, they say that there are many who
claims to be the saviour of humanity, is Jesus Christ not the same? Others have even argued
that He was not born in December, yet some says He was not born of a Holy Spirit infused
pregnancy through a virgin, a few have even gone ahead to claim that He did not resurrect from
death. It is not surprising that these wild tales are being bandied about and gaining traction,
because Satan will do anything to discredit the plans of God.
So when you are preaching salvation through Jesus to some they may allude to one of the
highlighted lies, arguing same to be the fact because according to 2Cor.4:4 they are those
”in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of
the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.“
But for us children of God, we are encouraged and warned in Heb.13:9, that we ensure that
”Do not be carried away by diverse and strange teachings……
Therefore, as you embark on soul winning activities, all you need to know and tell is that Jesus
Christ is the only Way to salvation and eternal glory, we must be careful to not allow ourselves to
be drawn into unnecessary arguments with potential converts nor with teachings that are not in
tandem with those in the Bible, otherwise you will as unprofitable as the nay sayers.
Whether they believe or not, the fact was, is and remains that Jesus is Lord…… Hallelujah!!!
