You do not worship God, the father of Jesus. –Commenter “Andrew”

This is the kind of accusation that will be lodged against you if you take up the mantle of truth and righteousness. You should embrace these accusations–they show that you are making an impact. Consider them. Go back to the Word. Ensure you are firmly planted. And when you are are sure your feet are on solid ground, remember this:

“It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household!” —Matthew 10:25 (NASB)

  1. Good point to remember.

    Your reminder to “Go to the Word” is enormously important here – when I see the biblical ignorance of many who post in internet forums and then scurry away when faced with actual, you know, Bible quotes, Christian history, and logic, I want to hit my head against the table.

    I’m OK with people who disagree with me or interpret things differently as long as it’s apparent that they’ve actually done some heavy lifting to arrive at their conclusions. It’s the trite and shallow know-nothings who speak as if they know something that I actually generally have fear for. It is not for nothing that James wrote, “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.”

    THAT should give any person with even a bit of wisdom pause.

  2. @KPP:

    It should indeed give us pause. But we cannot fear the know-nothings. The next verse after the one quoted in the original post says

    Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known.
