Promoting truth

We need to uphold absolutes without absolutism, practice rationality without rationalism, make assertions without arrogance and offer a defense without defensiveness. In doing so, we need three priorities: right thinking, right practice, and right attitudes. Even when the first two are clearly maintained, the third is sometimes lacking. The defense of the gospel is most effective when combined with the demeanor of Christ.
