Forum witness to the defectively instructed

May 26, 2012

{{_ Thanks for the instruction and I have basically done as you say. I will share the incorrect teaching as needed to keep others from falling into their web. Note these do not believe in Christ living in them or being born again. I do not judge individuals and pnly God judges. I do judge their teaching and it is against the essential teachings of being saved and born again. Can share linke showing if wanted. I have changed my post to say rebuke the demons expressing these teachings.}}

Thanks for your prompt response and your continuing support in this thread.

“Share incorrect teaching” I think it better to ignore teaching deemed defective and to neither share by copying nor characterize as defective. The best refutation is true biblical teaching, personal testimony, and personal example.

(There are times when it is appropriate to completely copy a post full of defective teaching and to annotate it thouroughly with lucid refutation. This presents a declaration of perceived differences between posted views that is useful if not overdone. Once or twice should generally be sufficient to point out what divorce lawyers call “irreconcilable differences”. Except that the door should be kept semi-open for possibly productive further communication.)

Biblical quotations do not seem to have much value in these situations. People value whatever knowledge of scripture that they think they possess and the quotations usually amplify useless argumentation.

The “righteousness and peace and joy” %1 that are the result of the spirit of that life which is in Christ Jesus %2 are the best testimony, “acceptable to God and approved by men” %1.

“Brightly burns our Father’s mercy from His lighthouse, evermore, / But to us, He gives the keeping of the lights along the shore.” %3

%1 (Rom 14:17-18 NKJ) for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.
%2 (Rom 8:2 NKJ) For the law of the [s]pirit of [that] life [which is] in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. [Modified to remove the effect of the dead hand of almost universal tradition from the living Word.]
%3 Let the Lower Lights Be Burning [Words, audio accompanyment & D.L. Moody sermon illustration]
