My friend Dan at “The Ekklesia in Southern Maine” has written a blog series on how to avoid conviction. He writes about avoiding conviction caused by teaching, the examples of others, reading Scripture, and the Holy Spirit.
[Sarcasm warning: If you don’t like sarcasm or tongue-in-cheek humor, you should probably stay away from Dan’s posts above, and you should probably not read the remainder of my post. You have been warned.]
Dan tells us the purpose of this blog series:
This is a how-to guide on how to avoid those awful feelings of conviction that sometimes nag us on our Christian walk. I hope you find it helpful in relieving those annoying feelings of guilt and painful realizations that you may need to change.
There are certain situations that lead one to feel convicted. Each situation requires a different strategy in avoiding said conviction.
So, how do you avoid conviction?
