Chances are if you have family of any size you find yourselves avoiding religion and politics to “keep the peace.” I get it. Not all of my kids share my spiritual or political views either. While 1 Corinthians 1 says there shouldn’t be any division among you, Paul also testifies that “I am not ashamed of the Gospel.” He also tells us that anyone preaching another Gospel, let him be accursed. The most important thing is to make sure your family knows you love them no matter their beliefs. When it’s foundational biblical truth that’s the conflict, you have to stand up for truth. But do it in love. Family members aren’t enemies, remember. They’re a mission field. Treat them as such.
