Fights

This morning the Wednesday group was finishing up our study of Romans.  We were working through the summary of our study of the book.  During the conversation one of the men suggested that the differences between Christians on doctrine have been a source of learning for the Church over time.  His point was that the disagreements have forced people into the text to work either validate their positions or find that their opponent’s argument is valid.
Disagreements between believers on doctrine has to be handled Biblically.
That was a good observation.  The source of the comment was a discussion on Romans 16:17; 14:1 – 6.  While we are to shun doctrinal error we are to do that in a way that honors the individual whom we perceive to be in error following the advice of Paul in 2 Timothy 2:24 – 25.  But the thoughts of Galatians 6:1 are also important here.  We need to check our heart and our positions against the Word to make sure we are not in error.
