To begin with, it’s difficult to take up an offering for a conversation. But that’s not so bad, because lectures and lecturers don’t really lend themselves to the pursuit of truth. Truth is best found in Christ centered conversation, not man centered lectures, because Christ is the TRUTH!
Truth is a threat to lecturers because it tends to mess up their agenda. Once we come to conclusions, the pursuit of TRUTH comes to a grinding halt. At that point we just have a battle of agendas. Conclusions are dead-end streets where the pursuit of Truth is concerned. Eternity is the goal of Truth, and TRUTH is the object of eternity.
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, (conversation) we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:14-16 NIV
The first thing we need for such a conversation is:
P.S. For that we need a revelation of the Cross!
