There are often differences of interpretation that result in disagreement between those who accept the scriptures as the source of doctrinal authority. How should we conduct ourselves when confronted with such disagreement?
First, we should respond with humility. We should realize that we are not infallible and could very well be wrong.
Second, we should hear the other person out. In keeping with the first point, the other person could very well be right. Therefore, we should listen carefully as they may be giving us a correct interpretation.
Third, if we still believe they are wrong and we are right we should carefully and clearly explain why it is we think so. This same pattern should characterize the ensuing dialogue. Our heart must remain humble and loving.
Fourth, if we think they are right we should take this situation to the Lord and ask him to lead us by his Spirit through his word. While we must be willing to have our understanding corrected we should not be hasty and given to change. Our decision to change our belief should be preceded by much thought and prayer. If we feel led through prayer, thought, and study to change our belief, then we should.
Finally, whatever the case, whether we think the other person to be wrong or right, we should pray for them. Just as we should pray for ourselves that we would be led by the Spirit through the Word to a correct understanding we should pray the same for the other person.
