Christian Basics – Foolish and Unlearned Questions avoid….
.
Recently, I posted an article outlining the subject of what scriptures tells us about when Jesus doesn’t heal and I’d mentioned that in my younger years as Christian, I got myself involved in all sorts of heated debates about some issues which surround certain subjects and I must admit, they weren’t my finest hours. Looking back, those debates were extremely pointless and many ways all they did was serve to take my eyes off Jesus, focusing on aspects which are unimportant so tonight article, is to strongly discourage any of our readers from entering into these kind of debates.
.
Debates like healing for example, are often best left up to the Pastors and experienced Christians of Kingdom unless you feel at peace about entering a conversation but even then, Paul the Apostle discouraged his own overseer of Ephesus Timothy from getting involved in these kind of practices. Paul said for Timothy to avoid foolish and unlearned questions and the reason for this as Paul explained, was to avoid ungodliness and strife’s and focus on the work of the Lord. All too often, these Christian debates can tend to end up in strife and normally the strife arises due to the lack of character (foolish) or understanding (unlearned questions) of the individuals but more than that, because the subject itself is for the most part is unimportant.
.
Now lets look at it plainly, if Paul’s advice to his presiding Apostle and his son in the faith was to avoid these kind of conversations, how much more should we take this advice on board for our own lives? The truth is much of these debates are pointless, they don’t serve any real purpose and tend to end up in an ungodly way, taking our eyes off the important focus like the cross, like loving others and saving the lost. Friend can I encourage you, avoid the pointless debates especially online, don’t make the same silly mistakes I made because all you’ll do is look back at the pointlessness of the situations. Focus on Christ, focus on others and live your life for Jesus.
