Where Do You Stand?

“Where do you stand?” is a question I often receive related to various scriptural and social subjects. I know that in part it is asked in a quest for understanding on the part of many inquirers.

If asked such a question on any subject at some point in my distant religious past, I would have either offered an answer or at least felt obligated to provide one. This is because I was raised “with all the answers”: the brand of Christendom in which I was brought up assumed to have everything all figured out.

Years ago I set out on a course that would allow my “positions” to fall by the way, with a heart to know what the Scriptures actually taught. Since then, I have been quite satisfied not even to have a “position” on any certain subject until my own studies of Scriptures convinced me of one. I no longer have shame or guilt in not taking a “stand” or having an opinion on every issue that arises. I feel no pressure to pick a “side,” unless I am “fully assured” in my own mind (Romans 14:5). In the meanwhile I continue to plug away in my investigation of the Scriptures.
