All Things Unequal

Have you ever noticed how much division there is in the religious world. Sometimes this division is due to “wrongheadedness,” but not always.  Sometimes disagreements arise due to honest misunderstanding.  And much of the misunderstanding can be attributed to our understanding of words and concepts. For instance, consider the list below.  Consider how believing these things are equal could impact doctrine and fellowship.

  • Loved by God = Accepted by God.
  • Tolerance = Approval.
  • Religious = Spiritual.
  • Sinner = Hypocrite.
  • Sorrow = Repentance.
  • Majority = Right.
  • Minority = Wrong.
  • Old = Stale.
  • New = Better.
  • Blessed = Problem Free.
  • Suffering = Discipline.
  • Christian = American.
  • Christ-like = In Christ.
  • Aged = Wiser.
  • Can = Should.
  • Attention to Detail = Pharisee-ism.
  • Certainty = Arrogance.
  • Uncertainty = Humility.
