The One Verse in the Bible all Christians Can Disagree With

The Gospel

Sounds sacrilegious, doesn’t it? But there is indeed one verse in the Bible which we can all emphatically disagree with.

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. (1 Timothy 1:15)

All Christians who have looked with unflinching eyes at the depths of their own sin can respectfully protest Paul’s claim to be the foremost of sinners. On what ground? There can only be one chief, and we should all argue with passion that that inglorious crown is our own.

We’ll have an eternity to disagree on this one, and to praise our Lord Jesus who came into the world to save sinners, of whom we would all argue to be the foremost.
