...And That Is The Truth!!

Why do people think that to judge sin is judging the person? It is not! Sin is sin! Right is right and wrong is wrong! There is truth and there is everything else. God will judge the people, but they must be aware of their sin and need for a Savior. The church has fallen for the lie that we have to be careful not to offend, that we have to be a friend of the world. ABSOLUTELY NOT! Peace that is obtained by compromising the truth is in fact not peace at all, it is a false peace. The disciples were not popular. They did not compromise. They stood for truth at any cost...their heads...their lives. Becoming a Christian is not a membership to an elite social club, it is an enlistment in the Army of the Lord! God would not have chosen to call it that if we were not supposed to fight! God is a God of love, He loves His people. If you are not one of His, not Born Again, you are under His wrath! ...and that is the truth!!!!

Amen! great post! and thanks for commenting on mine as well. I totally agree that we can't try to make everyone comfortable; I'd rather be uncomfortable and sitting in jail for preaching the gospel than be sitting comforatbly in my home watching Dr Phil!

I whole heartedly agree! God's Word teaches us not to be a friend to the world, or to love the world (James 4:4; I John 2:15). Jesus didn't have the fear of man, He offended people all the time, because He only spoke the truth. Speaking the truth in love is loving the person, even if they don't want to hear it. We are called to seperate from sin and reach out to the sinner; hate sin and love the sinner. We are going to be hated by the world for it, but pleasing God for shinning His light into the darkness! We need to not back down from the truth - people need to hear it!
