Sincere, but Sincerely Wrong
Read Job 36:1 through 37:24; Acts 9:1–19
If there was ever a poster child for misguided passion, it was Paul, once known as Saul. Educated, powerful, persuasive, and driven, he set out to destroy the Lord’s disciples. He thought he was doing the right thing. He believed he was defending God. Instead, the opposite turned out to be true:
“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied (Acts 9:5).
Saul was sincere, but he was sincerely wrong. God did what He needed to do to give Saul the opportunity to know Jesus and stop persecuting Jesus and the Church, but the zealous Saul still had to choose. He chose correctly and became a missionary, performed miracles, and penned a large portion of the New Testament.
Although Christians have already chosen to follow Christ, they may have blind spots where they are both sincere and wrong. Living in this world has a way of distorting things and making good sound evil and evil seem good.
Don’t be afraid to hold everything up to the truth-revealing light of Scripture.
