I absolutely love this post by Mike Ridenour about nitpicky quarrels and divisions among professing Christians. I especially like the following paragraphs:
“…if you are a little confused about your theology, don’t feel like you are demonic and full of Satan. In fact, a man that doesn’t feel a little confused about his theology probably needs to study it a little harder.
It isn’t that God is all that confusing. It is because you can’t explain infinity in a book with a beginning and an end.
All the answers aren’t there.
All the ones we really need are.
Titus 3:9 Do not get involved in foolish discussions about spiritual pedigrees or in quarrels and fights about obedience to Jewish laws. These things are useless and a waste of time. 10 If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them. 11 For people like that have turned away from the truth, and their own sins condemn them.
Here’s a little rule of thumb for you. If someone is trying to shrink the love of God into just covering a splinter of the church that, of course, includes themselves, they have turned from the truth.
Speak you(r) piece and be done with it. Don’t go all over Facebook proclaiming them demonic and full of Satan.
It is easy to fall into that trap where someone says something so outlandish and divisive that we get divisive right back. ”

The other day I saw a post in a fine “Christian” Facebook site that proudly pronounced that those who believed in the bible a certain way were demonic and full of Satan.
I really didn’t see that as having any basis in fact because if that is the case, there are a lot of demonic, full of Satan out there loving others and doing God’s work.
But, they were adamant and as I read the comments telling them how wrong they were, the began to write that if people prayed hard enough when reading the bible, the rest of the story would be revealed to them and they were instantly stop being demonic and full of Satan.
OK, first of all, I am hesitant to even say that people that truly claim to be demonic and full of Satan actually are because unlike God’s mercy, there just isn’t enough Satan…
