Can we love Christians with whom we disagree?
A woman commented on one of my devotions. She doubted I was born again and knew I didn't have God's Spirit because I was spreading poisonous lies from Satan and preventing people from being healed.(1)
I responded kindly, but that inspired four more comments in which she quoted Scriptures and attacked my faith and character.
If a non-believer visited my site before I deleted her comments, I doubt they'd believe John 13:35: "Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples."
In the forty years I've been a believer, it seems like Christians have become more angry (and not righteously so) - about politics and non-essential doctrinal differences.
If we can't disagree without discrediting the character and faith of other believers, we should keep our mouths shut.
Because I'm an opinionated person, I need to occasionally remind myself of the principles in Romans 14 - 15:1-15.
If you haven't read that passage lately, why not do it today. With God's help, we can disagree and still be a testimony for Christ's love.
(1) This was regarding my devotion "Does Faith Heal?"
