Big, important words are always going to be worth discussing. Take, for example, “love” and “acceptance.” I might say I can love someone without accepting them, meaning that I love a person but cannot accept their behavior. I could also say that I can accept someone without loving them, meaning I can work with them but cannot bring myself to feel good about it. We might consider love and acceptance so closely related that both must be possessed together. It is worth reminding Christians that this principle cuts both ways.
We could discuss and argue about these statements from now on. We might convince each other to think differently, or we might learn to understand the other perspective. It is not likely that we could ever agree, however, unless we can agree on the same definitions of “love” and “acceptance.”
