Dialogue ≠ Compromise - Vlog #7 with Greg Johnson
One of the biggest challenges to being an advocate of convicted yet civil dialogue is the accusation of compromise. Some say that the only way to have a pleasant and positive relationship with someone who believes differently than you do is to morally or theologically compromise your own convictions. Tragically, this is a false presumption. In fact, maintaining a warm and positive relationship with those who believe differently than you do is a sign of spiritually strength and confidence. Christians have been called to love one another and to love both our enemies and our neighbors, so loving those who believe differently than us does not equal being a compromiser, but an authentic witness of our Christian faith.
