Advice for everyone who engages in theological discussion:
Figure out what you are for--not what you're against. The statement is such a basic Christian attitude, or at least should be. Christianity would be better for it. Christians would be better for it. Society at large would be better for it. Mother Teresa did this as she tended the poor in India.
My response had basically been: If the discussions frustrate you, DON’T ENGAGE IN THEM. Figure out what you’re for, not what you’re against. The road to Christ is lonely, long, and almost unbelievably rocky, and though it takes place in community, we have to also walk it alone, often in great anguish and distress, often for decades if not our whole lives.
