In Light of Some Recent Discussions

I think Colossions 4:5-6 rings quite clearly in light of some of our recent discussions.

Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

I think that verse speaks for itself.

  1. I understand, and love this verse. The bibe also says to speak the truth in love, contend for the faith and study to rightly divide the word of truth. It also warns that many will lead us us astray, as much as it is possible.

    I believe the best I can say about Rick Warren is he may have good intentions, but his books and studies dilute the gospel…ans this is very dangerous.

  2. I love that verse… I actually just wrote a post that included the concept of being wise in our dealings with outsiders.
