1 Peter 3
You may have seen or read about religious organizations that make a point of being the highlight of protests – regardless of the reason. Everything from screaming at passerby’s on sidewalks to stopping funeral processions. I find the words of Peter very insightful when it comes to stating our positions:
1 Peter 3:5 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, 16 keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
We are not to hesitate to state our position but it is to be done in a manner that we gain the respect of those we address.
