A straightforward question for Christians to ask one another is, “Where do you see that in the Bible?”
Is there a passage where this is stated? Is there a section where this is explained? Is there a story where this is illustrated?
What is there in the Bible that led you to that conviction?
Too often, we hold onto traditions, poor advice, and unbiblical influences with the same enthusiasm as the Scriptures.
I know your grandparents said it, your teacher explained it that way in school, and even your pastor might have taught it a particular way. But the bigger question is, “Where do you see that in the Bible?”
Just because it makes sense in your head doesn’t make it scripture.
