Titus 3:7-9 We were made right with God by his grace. God saved us so that we could be his children and look forward to receiving life that never ends. This is a true statement. And I want you to be sure that the people understand these things. Then those who believe in God will be careful to use their lives for doing good. These things are good and will help everyone. Stay away from those who have foolish arguments, who talk about useless family histories, or who make trouble and fight about what the Law of Moses teaches. These things are useless and will not help anyone.

Don’t Disappear Down This Rabbit Hole

It’s easy these days to get drawn into crazy arguments … all too easy. And before you know it, instead of following Jesus, instead of doing good, you’ve been sucked down the rabbit hole of political dogma.

If you believe in Jesus, if you earnestly set out to follow Him each day, the world’s not going to be pleased with you. And so, many a Christ-follower feels the need to defend themselves and their faith.

That defence often manifests itself in dogmatic political and ideological arguments. Philp Yancey puts it like this:

C.S. Lewis observed that almost all crimes of Christian history have come about when religion is confused with politics. Politics, which always runs by the rules of ungrace, allures us to trade away grace for power, a temptation that the church has often been unable to resist. 

And God puts it like this:

Titus 3:7-9 We were made right with God by his grace. God saved us so that we could be his children and look forward to receiving life that never ends. This is a true statement. And I want you to be sure that the people understand these things. Then those who believe in God will be careful to use their lives for doing good. These things are good and will help everyone. Stay away from those who have foolish arguments, who talk about useless family histories, or who make trouble and fight about what the Law of Moses teaches. These things are useless and will not help anyone.

So, according to God, foolish arguments are useless and unhelpful. Did you get that? Instead, use your life for doing good. It’s not about power. It’s not about winning. It’s about grace. 

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
