Sometimes It’s Not OK to Be Nice
When Jesus encountered religious leaders teaching dangerous, damning error, He didn’t seek conversation, common ground, or peaceful resolution. He confronted. He bluntly exposed the lies and hypocrisy. He refused to contribute to any sense of spiritual unity with the false teachers.
In other words, Jesus wouldn’t be welcomed in most evangelical circles today. His bold method of dealing with error is foreign to today’s church. The need is desperate for a fresh understanding and application of His model.
That’s the heart of John MacArthur’s study How to Talk to a Heretic. You’ll see inside one of Jesus’ poignant confrontations with pious enemies of the gospel and truth. Along the way, you’ll be equipped to fight the same good fight today.
