We live in a divisive world. There is a constant pull to pick a side…to choose this OR that. People are convinced that everything is an “OR” decision, not understanding that through a relationship with Jesus we have access to AND. We do not have to fight and devour each other over foolish controversies. Instead, we are free to acknowledge this truth and the that truth. There would be far more unity and strength in the church if we embraced the places where God gives us AND instead of OR.
But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. Titus 3:9
