My husband recently commented to a high school friend who was posting about Blue Like Jazz on facebook. He sent him an article from Lighthouse Trails. The friend responded that both sides were “brothers and sisters in Christ.” Basically, we can disagree, but the open minded of us will not fight about it. More of a…”you are being closed minded” argument.
Can both be right? Can Lighthouse Trails point out Donald Miller’s heresy and this all be a “well we’re all one in the Spirit and we’re all Chrisitans so it’s okay?” I say no. I say the Lighthouse Trails editors and contributors cannot be on the same page as Donald Miller. They are not “brothers and sisters” they are enemies.
Now my huband has to do more than forward an article, he has to point out error in a book neither of us is interested in owning. Lovely. But then again, will it do any good? Maybe not today, but seeds can be planted and hopefully one day God will show my husband’s friend the error. It happens sometimes.
