The problem is that there's such a fine line between that and political talk in church. Not that political subjects should be taboo per se, but the assumption is that the members of the congregation may have a wide variety of political views. If we bring politics into our Sunday worship, we're going to wind up turning Sunday services into a political forum, and how can we feel the spirit then? How close will we be as brothers and sisters in Christ if, instead of seeing each other as fellow brothers and sisters we see Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Loony Lefty, Right wingnut, etc...?Enough of my rambling. What do you think?
I can understand that. If the question is "should I play this video game," the asker is likely looking for a simple "yes" or "no." Not "well... what does it say about games in Deuteronomy?"
When the "Jesus is the answer" message is too simplistic. Answer to what? How?
Now this one varies on the person! I personally like a good theological debate, provided the person I am talking with is willing to respect a difference of opinion and experiences. It's no fun trying to have a debate about any topic where the other person has a "my way or the highway" approach to the discussion.Debates over theology.
If you don't mind me asking, what church is it?
What I like about my church:
Are you saying that some churches intentionally drive off people? I'm not disagreeing with you - in fact, I can see some churches doing this intentionally, given our divisive political climate nowadays.Need another thread - " Ways to (purposefully) drive off nonbelievers (and some believers)" e.g. Not practicing what is preached or being exclusive rather than inclusive.
