I Don’t Always Agree With Other Preachers

1 CORINTHIANS 13:9 NLT 9 Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture!
I don’t know one single person on earth I agree with completely on every single thing they believe.
That does not make me right, or make them wrong.
It just means that we are all in a process of learning, so of necessity we are not all at the same place in our thinking.
There are some who know more than I do about a subject, and there are some who know less than I do about that subject.
I should not fight or argue with those who know less about a subject than I do. Neither should I be proud because of my knowledge. For everything I have learned, I have been taught. I was not born with superior knowledge.
And you may find, as I have from time to time, that I thought I had knowledge of a subject, only to find out later that I was wrong.
In order to keep learning, I need to stay open to what others have to say. I need to truly listen to others.
However, if I once believed what someone is teaching, but the Lord corrected me, then it would be foolish to waste my time continuing to listen to them on that subject. I don’t need to criticize or condemn them. But I don’t need to keep listening to them speak on that subject, either. Yet, there may be other subjects that I could still learn from them.
