Straw Men and Misrepresentation
Many who are unaccustomed to Acts 28 right division will find the teaching here, at first glance, hard to digest. One reason for this is that the teaching of Biblical doctrine has given way to and replaced by entertainment in many churches. The other reason is that Acts 28 teaching lays to rest many of the sacred cows of confessing christianity though this is not by any means the only fruit that it produces. If something is seen only in terms of negatives, that is if Acts 28 teaching is seen only in terms of denying this or denying that so that the message one gets is a long list of doctrines that are negated this can have the effect of turning many would be investigators into righteously indignant detractors.
