bethyada puts forth the prescription:

1. Answer maybe it wasn't the Lord because his word says thus...

In a manner that is appropriate for the questioner of course. And you could seek to fully understand what exactly they are saying.

Jesus refuted wrong ideas based on Scripture.


Yes indeedy! The Word is the corral in which the Holy Spirit runs (He will surely not contradict that which He inspired!). The ticklish part is the pervasiveness of this kind of pseudo-doctrinal high-handedness. I mean, how does one argue with the Pronouncements of God?

Of course, by using the Word. The reaction is the fun part. Years ago, we went to a "Bible Study", briefly. It was actually the Thursday night cough-and spew, otherwise known as a "deliverance meeting". The woman (!) who headed this group had it from the Lord Himself ( He spoke to her!) that she was to withhold conjugal favors from her hubby 'til he got right with the Lord. Ummmm... "Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband."

I had a Righteous Anger rise up in me, and what came out of my mouth was:

"Whispers in the night
Don't change what's written in black & white."

I informed her of the Scripture, whereupon it was darkly hinted that perhaps I had a demon.

We cleared that part of our social calendar.
