Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants. 2 Timothy 2:25‭-‬26

There are some bible beaters out here. Bible beaters are Christians who are beating people up with scripture after scripture attempting to get them saved or turn from their unholy ways. What a lot of them are missing is gentleness.

If we gently instruct those who oppose the truth, God can potentially work on their hearts to escape the deception of Satan. The key word is gently.

Like anything else, if we come too heavy-handed or harsh, that can be off-putting. No one likes anything to be shoved down their throats. In Ephesians 4:15, it tells us to teach the truth in love.

Based on everything we see, it’s important to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and teach the truth, but let’s do it in a gentle way.
