Vanquish Vagueness  (CL)

Vagueness is the enemy of truth. Truth may sometimes be elusive, but when found it is always crystal clear. Razor sharp. Over the course of time, theological and biblical doctrines and enterprises accumulate libraries of so much content, analysis and explanation that they grow more detailed, complex, and ironically more vague. When a Biblical issue has gotten so huge it is hard to pin down, it’s time to step back and look for the core issues. Refuse to accept the complexity and its resulting vagary. Use other parts of scripture to narrow the focus toward specificity and clarity.
