112: How to Share Your Convictions as a Christian Leader (without promoting legalism)

Christian leaders are often passionate about what they believe. But they do not always share their personal convictions in ways that are healthy or productive.

There is real danger when Christian leaders use their personal convictions as a mandate for how others should live. Doing this tends to lead towards legalism and away from discernment. But what should we be doing instead?

In this episode, I’m diving into a topic that is relevant to what is happening in our world right now. You can’t go on social media or the news lately without seeing people, including Christian leaders, making blanket statements about what you should or should not be doing (wearing masks, how to respond to racism, etc).

And while I sometimes agree with the recommendations, I’m concerned with the ways they are being communicated. In many cases, leaders are creating a set of rules that you must follow in order to be seen as a ‘real Christian’... and this is legalism. But how can we share our convictions and beliefs without promoting legalism?

Today I’m sharing from a blog post that I wrote previously with 5 principles for sharing our convictions as leaders.
