Why I Defend What I Don’t Believe

If you read my blog, and even more so if you know me in real life, you’ve probably noticed that I tend to be unusually defensive about doctrines I don’t agree with and people I think are wrong. My recent post on Catholicism makes a decent example.

Some might assume this is because I’m secretly leaning to my opponents’ ways or maybe I’m some kind of relativist who thinks everyone’s interpretations are equally valid. Neither of those ideas would be true. Instead, I simply am committed to clarity and charity.

To get what I mean, follow the link below to a blog post on Reformedish. He explains the same behavior in the author of a book I really want called Deviant Calvinism.
