A number of years ago, a friend and I were having a serious discussion about scripture. Okay, we were arguing. We could not agree, so that evening we just let the matter drop. It really wasn’t a make or break type of thing, we just disagreed
The next he came to me and said, “While I was mowing the grass, God gave me…” Then he told me the same thing he had said the night before. I don’t have a problem with people saying that sort of thing. You know someone might say in time of trouble “God gave me this scripture” or “God made clear to me…” or even “God said to me..”
What I do have a problem is in a situation where you disagree about something and one person says to the other “God told me it was this way.” What you are actually saying at this point is “if you still disagree with me, you are now arguing against God.”
We are not going to agree on everything and that’s okay. But we need to leave the minor things alone and agree on what’s important.
