I am not wanting to discuss specific "things" in this thread, but am just asking this question in a general sense. Are there instances where a Bible question is better left unasked, and are there instances where Christians should intentionally twist scripture to make the Bible and God look more appealing to the world today? Again, I am not wanting to go into any specific topics, as I have seen this kind of question come up time and again. I have seen Christians shy away from certain controversial subjects for fear of how it will make the church look, and I have seen Christians completely pervert scripture to make their doctrine seem more reasonable to the current culture.
I want to make it clear that I can understand why people might feel either way. My personal view has been to put the truth out there and let the chips fall where they may, and to try to be completely honest, but I do understand how some are not spiritually equipped to accept absolute truth. As such, I am sincerely desiring the opinion of my fellow brothers and sisters at Worthy Boards.
