Being Right vs. Love........

Sometimes you just can win with certain people. No matter what you do they have to be right. They have to win. I confess, I have been guilty of this before. But somehow I believe God is more concerned with our hearts than being right. In SBC circles we have purged our denomination of the "liberals" and such over the last 25 years. The only problems was the way it was done was without love. When Southwestern fired Dr. Dilday, it was cruel. He wasn't even a liberal. Anyway, this morning I read on monday morning insight that Bill Hybels and Rick Warren, mega church pastors were confessing their sins for not stepping up on the fight for AIDS/HIV. Good for them. But there were people who were saying they were "Unequally yoked" for partnering with Pharmaceutical companies! Give me a break! Come on, I will accept any free stuff I can to help hurting people. In fact, yesterday, Toys for Tots and Wal Mart gave FBTC a huge truck load of toys and stuff for its Christmas Store. The Christmas Store gives FREE Christmas presents to needy people in Southwest Mobile. Does this mean that FBTC is unequally yoked? I don't think so. I think we can nit-pick everything to death. Marty Duren has been bringing up another important issue in SBC circles. The International Mission Board is now requiring that its missionaries be baptized in an SBC church. My question is when is being "right" more important than love?

Well, we have to remember the story from LUKE 18..where the Pharisee and the publican were both praying....

Jesus described the Pharisee as "praying to himself..."

And when we insist on being "right"--with the wrong motives and wrong spirit...then are we really just "praying to ourselves..."

Great blog brother....

Blessings to you.
