Are you a Christian fighter or simply a pugilist? Seth Godin wrote in his blog post “Pugilists“:
The pugilist, on the other hand, skirmishes for fun. The pugilist has a hobby, and the hobby is being oppositional.
The pugilist can turn any statement, quote or event into an opportunity to have an urgent argument, one that pins you to the ground and makes you question just about anything.
Interesting. Sound like any blogs you may have read in the past?
See, Seth nails the problem with dealing with pugilists:
Instead of playing chess, the pugilist is playing you.
Just in case you think Christians are not fighters, or in case you get the wrong idea of who the enemy really is, keep in mind:
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
