There is a difference between defense of the gospel and debating. One who loves debating will play the devil’s advocate even though they do not believe the point they are arguing. However, remember, debating is not about the truth, but about who presents their argument the best. We should be able to stand our ground when it comes to the truth without yielding from the way things really are and always be ready to give a defense for what we believe.

This is going to be a hard topic for some to hear because if you are a Christian who is holding onto the Ten Commandments as the standard for how you are to live you have been bewitched. Think about that. You have been caught by someone who seeks to change the gospel message to a different message, which is not good news.
Those who are ensnared by Satan are only opposing themselves. They continually seek to do things without consideration to God’s will and are manipulated to do the will of Satan, not realizing they are doing it because they are not accepting the truth. Don’t let Satan walk all over you. You are God’s child, start acting like one.
And also, brethren, I was not able to speak to you as Spiritual but as carnal, as inarticulate babblers in Christ. I gave you milk not meat. For thus you were not able, but neither yet now are you able, for yet you are carnal. For where among you is jealousy and strife are you not carnal and walk as humans? – 1 Corinthians 3:1-3
Experiencing the Christian life is something that all of us need to do by living out what God says. This takes some training because the salvation we have is not something we sit and wait for in the future, it can, and should be, used right now in our lives. We are the children of God, we have all things pertaining to life and godliness, we are those who are in Christ. Our lives need to show this.
