How should we respond to people who disagree with us as Christians?

Our response should first be reasoned. That means it should be logically valid. It should also be informed and thoughtful.

Our response must be “informed.” What I mean by that is we need to know the facts about what we’re discussing before we respond.

Third, our response should be “thoughtful.” What I mean by that is how we respond to people who disagree with us. The concept of “thoughtful Christianity” is summed up well in Ephesians 4:15 where we are told to speak the truth “in love” and in 4:25 to “speak truth with his neighbor.” Christians should “speak truth,” but they should speak it “in love.” That’s part of presenting a thoughtful response that is reasoned and informed.
