One thing that took time for me to sort out was the idea that if we (Christians) are believing the truth, then we should agree. Or as it was once put to me “If Christianity Were True Christians Would Always Agree.”
There is a GIANT misunderstanding about being a soldier of God. And I’ll spill it right up front, it is a spiritual war, we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Jesus called us to be wise as serpents but gentle as doves. That basically means we are called to be slaughtered. And forgive those that slaughter us. Even as they do it.
