When Contending Becomes Cantankerous

Jan and her guests, Eric Barger and Jill Martin Rische (daughter of the late Dr. Walter Martin) have an in-studio discussion: All three head "discernment ministries" yet they are troubled by all the sniping, bad-mouthing, character assassinations, and general lack of love being shown. So just how do evangelicals confront doctrinal error? And what is "secondary separation?" Can Christians ever share a platform with one who is known to have serious false doctrine? Are some outfits just being Pharisaical and becoming known for what they attack more than what they build up? These are tough questions because we must "contend for the faith." Apostasy does reign and we cannot always be silent. Can we contend in love or must contending be cantankerous? www.ericbarger.com www.waltermartin.com
