A Christian should know intimately what it means to stand your ground. When your schoolteacher teaches that you came from a fish, snail or slug the believer stands their ground in believing they are a person created in God’s image. When your schoolteacher teaches that it’s natural for the same sex to be intimate with one another, you stand your ground knowing that they have to adopt to have children. It’s obvious that this is not natural. Stand your ground.
Stand your ground when the laws change, saying, it’s acceptable to be a pedophile and that their action does not negatively affect children. Stand your ground and refuse to be under the teaching of a false prophet. Stand your ground against mediocrity and embrace the challenge that comes with being a believer in Jesus. You shall have trials. You shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer because Christ has overcome the world.
When a preacher departs from scripture, you depart from him. Do not be afraid of man, but God. Stand your ground for doctrinal things like Christ crucified and rose from the dead. Jesus is the only way to heaven and the believer is made righteous because of him. Some things we don’t stand for.
When a woman is dressed like a harlot and approaches you for sex, you flee. Standing your ground is not wise. When a man tells you how attractive you are and puts out the red carpet and proceeds to sex you, you flee. Standing your ground is not wise. When friends try and convince you that doing drugs is fine, you flee. Standing your ground is not wise. When friends try and convince you to rob, steal, or kill, you flee. Standing your ground is not wise.
Because you live in a fallen world and must be educated in a fallen system, you must answer whatever is required to graduate school, so use wisdom in your stance. No need to cast your pearls before swine.
Stand your ground when scripture supports your stand. Flee when it does not.
