Contending for the faith is what we are called as Christians to do. However, do we know what that means? Have we failed in this as Christians? In a very concise and clear way, Aaron shows what contending for the faith is and what it is not. It is not putting a high priority on unity, while we compromise who Christ is and what he has done and why. Contending does divide. Even Christ himself said that because of him, there will be division. He did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill. Contending for the faith is the authority of scripture, God's nature and character and the full Gospel. A great reminder is Contending is not about making doctrine more important than people. We contend in mercy and grace to others. Jesus never left anyone in their sin. However, since we are with sin ourselves, we must contend the truth in love and grace.

Aaron Armstrong
“Contending must be understood and exercised as an act of mercy toward those who doubt and those who have been deceied, regardless of whether they claim faith in Christ.”
