Bible Bashing

I didn't get into much Bible bashing as a missionary. Honestly, I was always more interested in exploring the scriptures of the restoration than identifying verses in the New and Old Testament I could use in an argument over doctrine. I also thought it was terribly unfair that any scriptural argument I got into was done in the other person's native tongue while I was struggling to speak a second language. Finally, I never saw a use for it. I realized rather quickly if we were in a fight, I wasn't changing any minds no matter how well-reasoned my argument might be.*

*This seems especially true in matters of politics today as party affiliation has become more and more a central part of people's identity.
