An Ounce of Inoculation is Worth a Pound of Argumentation

In that case, an ounce of inoculation is worth a pound of argumentation.
Don’t be satisfied with the pad answers. Give them the tough stuff. Don’t be afraid that if you give them a robust argument to defend against that they’ll leave the faith. Don’t sell them short or give them the short end of the stick. Give them an ounce of prevention. Inoculate them, because if you don’t, there are those who will. I guarantee it.

Church Covenant culture

Reasons to Join a Church

An integral piece of the post-modern puzzle is this idea of absolute individual. The reader, not the author, determines the post-modern hermeneutic. Morality is relative to individual preference, not objective and transcendent. And then there’s covenant. Post-moderns avoid covenant like J.E.B. Stuart’s acquisition of Pope’s coat. They want nothing to do with joining anything organized, especially the Church.
