Indignant and Offended: Real Christians do Not Dismiss God’s Word

INDIGNANT AND OFFENDED

Real Christians do not ignore or dismiss God’s Word.

However, apostate pretenders, tares and counterfeits have no problem ignoring inconvenient Scripture.

A conversation can sometimes serve as a reminder of this.  So it was with a recent conversation.

Pretend Christians fall into predictable patterns when confronted with Bible verses which they cannot answer. The usual pattern seems to be:

  1. Ignore the Bible verse.
  2. Dismiss the verse by claiming that it is “symbolic imagery” or that “it comes from a part of the Bible not meant to be understood” or some other unbiblical excuse.
  3. Quote another verse which has nothing to do with the one ignored. Any verse will do.
  4. Attack the person who originally brought up the unanswered Bible verse.
  5. Finally, act indignant and offended as an excuse to end the conversation about the Scripture. Further drama can be achieved by leaving the room.

It has happened so many times in just the way described…

“And then shall many be offended,”
Matthew 24:10

End Time Quote: Indignation

Once more: real Christians do not ignore or dismiss God’s Word.

When someone does this, it’s a tip off to their true allegiance.
