Yep, it’s a favorite of ‘cop-out artists’ everywhere.
- Don’t want to admit to something? Agree to Disagree.
- Caught red handed? Agree to Disagree Come on! What you were doing wasn’t really ‘wrong.’
- Confronted about your attitude? Agree to Disagree. You had a right to be upset!
- Out on a theological limb you know you can’t support? Agree to Disagree.
- Called on the carpet by church leadership? Agree to Disagree.
Go ahead, give it a try! It’s the new ‘politically correct’ game by Miton Bradley. Simply ‘Agree to Dissagree’ to anything and everything you would rather not deal with! You can play it alone, with a friend, a small group, or, if you’re really good—an entire church!
But there is one player who you’ll never get to join you.
Sorry, He doesn’t feel the need to water things down, squirm out of things or be politically correct. He just tells the truth and lets the chips fall where they may.
Ironically (or not ) they seem to fall according to plan every single time.
Oh, and Paul and Barnabas?
Most believe they were both right and wrong. They simply had to agree to disagree.
I disagree—pun intended.
How much of the New Testament is written about the exploits of Barnabas and how much is written by or about (or both) Paul?
What? You don’t see it that way?
That’s okay. I guess we’ll just have to agree to dissagree.
