Seasoned with Salt

Over the years I have heard numerous people who are turned off to the way the Reformers interpret the Bible. The reason for this distaste is that the Reformed advocates they encountered have been either overly aggressive or treated conversations as an arena for rhetorical humiliation. The end result is that years later when they encounter a lucid and humble Reformed advocate they act shocked. In their minds they have built an impression of that position that is unsustainable and made for barbarians who show no interest in the person’s well-being. Reformed theology was doomed to fail from the first conversation.

Let this be a lesson to us who when trying to persuade fellow brothers and sisters of any particular ideology we show truth in love and love in truth. Let our words be seasoned with salt and let our persuasion be filled with grace.
