For almost 20 years, I've gone through long seasons in which I've invested an overwhelming amount of time and energy and heart into debating with people who are head-over-heels in love with their own biblical certainty.
Oh, they probably call it faith.
Or they might even refer to it as belief.
At times, they might even call it a "mystery of God".
But regardless of what they call it, they embrace it, engage it, defend it, and project it with certainty.
And many of the people I've engaged with over the years are seemingly incapable of comprehending that their certainty poses a threat to their notion of "having faith" or that their "knowing" is in direct opposition to "believing".
Those who are "biblically certain" will engage in a conversation or debate with unrestrained passion and conviction. They come to most discussions or conversations knowing that they are 100 percent right.
Of course, it wouldn't be such a big deal if they were simply arguing with you armed with their own opinions.
Oh, but that’s not what they do…
