Have you as I often heard or even said yourself, ‘we can agree to disagree?”
I have come to think that is not Biblical.
I have yet to find an address in Scripture that says we are allowed to agree to disagree.
Paul and Barnabas had such a disagreement they parted company.
They did not agree to disagree.
Their disagreement had to do with John Mark. (Don’t you just love that name? John Mark. Sounds like his mama could have yelled that out the backdoor so well.)
Paul did not want John Mark to go along on their next missionary journey and Barnabas did.
Check it out HERE.
Sometime later Paul changed his mind about John Mark. (2 Timothy 4:11)
So perhaps he and Barnabas came to a time they could keep company again even before they got to Heaven.
I hope so.
It is the will of the Father that His children be of one accord. (See Acts 2)
Scripture asks us this question:
Amos 3:3 (NKJV) 3 Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? source
In the Body of Christ, we don’t get to agree to disagree over Sin.
We don’t get to agree to disagree over Scripture.
We get to come together in one accord and pray until we KNOW what GOD has said and we both agree with HIM which puts us in agreement with one another.
Red carpet or Blue carpet?
Really? Are we going to divide the Body over that?!
For these kinds of matters to bring us to hot words and slamming doors means we have far, far, far uglier problems in our hearts than carpet color.
