My friend Mike Ratliff with some pertinent words for those of us who engage in theological apologetics aka discernment here. Let us leave the character assassination and slander tactics of the world to the unregenerate, heretics and the deceived, but let those of us who claim the pure faith of Scripture as expressed in the Reformed confessions live in light of that high calling of ours, and not to return in kind evil for evil.
Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil. Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need. Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Eph. 4: 25-32)
Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest you be like him yourself. (Prov. 26:4)
