People are always more important than arguments.
People are more important than looking clever on Facebook.
People have true, permanent value before God.
Jesus prayed for his enemies.
Jesus loved his enemies.
Jesus loved arrogant people who were not open to examining the evidence his life clearly demonstrated.
Love covers a multitude of sins and bad arguments.
We may find the perfect argument for why God exists, but people are complicated in their reasons for believing anything and intellectual arguments don’t always provide us the victory we hope for over the other person’s reasoning. Neither does a good argument give us the right to be rude. The war over a person’s soul is a spiritual one and is more important than the smaller battle a conversation may present. Let’s pray for truth to prevail and that as Christian people we will not be the most difficult barrier a person has to cross in order to believe in God.
