It's a tough burden to bear, having all the answers.
Almost as bad is finding a truth, or an application that you just can't seem to get others to see.
When I get excited about something and share it with people I care about, I want them to be excited with me: not because I'm so smart or because I want them to know how much better I am than they are. It's just that I believe I've found something wonderful and I just want to offer it to anyone, so that it can be as much a blessing to them as it has been for me.
Imagine, though, the sense of rejection that follows when they (people I care about, and I am sure also care about me) slap it to the ground and turn away from me, refusing to listen.
This happens all the time.
It happens to everyone who studies the Bible for themselves and finds truth that others don't see. It happens between husbands and wives, family members, friends, co-workers, even theological peers. It happens within and across denominational boundaries, on almost any subject or context imaginable.
It's a shock to many Christians to learn that, when Paul quotes this phrase in 1st Corinthians 6 and 1st Corinthians 10, he is quoting a sage of Judaism. It is a shock, I believe, because we miss the entire point that is being made by both of them.
If you read Sophia Sira, while it reads very similarly to the book of Proverbs, except with a number of short essays sandwiched between the collections of anecdote, the underlying position is that if you obey the commands of God without understanding why you obey them, then you're really not obeying them. We can take that a step farther to say, if you believe a point of doctrine because the people around you require you to believe it, then you really don't believe it.
Our world is overwhelmingly plagued with this "false faith" and "pseudo-conviction" trusting in our teachers of the Bible and not trusting in the Bible nor the God of the Bible. "I believe this because my pastor taught me this," or "this is what I grew up understanding" is not really faith.
Peter exhorts the leaders of the early Church to, "not lead the flock of God by constraint, but willingly" for this very reason. When we require a person to accept what we believe or understand on the basis of our own conviction, we are robbing them of the opportunity to discover truth for themselves.
This certainly doesn't mean that we are not to teach others, or share what we believe. It does mean that we are never to brow-beat, condescend toward or condemn anyone who just doesn't get it. Rather, we need to patiently consider that the time they are taking to understand things for themselves is a valuable process. In so doing, they may discover a deeper insight that you and I have overlooked... and come, excitedly, to share that with us!
