If you do not tell how will they know
We are to teach them
Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. Ephesians 4:25 New International Version
In Acts 3 if Peter did not point out their wrong would the people have repented?
If you see a child playing with a lighter and do you not warn them of its dangers and they burn down the house with them it aren’t you partly to blame? Is it not our duty and responsibility to diplomatically point out sin to others otherwise how will they know? If you see someone doing wrong and do not educate them about it will you not answer to Jesus for that?
So are you telling me if you know a married woman in your church is having an affair you would say nothing? Does that make you guiltier than they are?
Think of Matthew 25:31-46, do you want someone to receive the reward of those in verse 46 because you were too afraid or too politically correct to guide them to the truth?
What does repent mean?
Is it not acknowledging your sin, apologizing for it and stop doing it? How will they know they are sinning if you do not teach them?
Do not condemn them, that is for Christ. Our duty is to teach them. If they listen praise God, if they refuse walk away knowing you have done your duty.
Anyone who believes that we are all going to Heaven, hold hands and sing cum by ya my lord regardless of how wicked they were in this life is living a fools dream or is an agent of satan attempting to lure the gullible into a fools paradise.
“So we continue to preach Christ to each person, using all wisdom to warn and to teach everyone, in order to bring each one into God's presence as a mature person in Christ.” (Colossians 1:28 NCV)
Jesus draws His line in the sand.
Which side of it are you on?
Christians are called to take action in life, not be spectators. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jehovah Chanan (God is gracious) bless me with Your wisdom, strength and grace to lead the prodigal children into Your Holy family or back to Your Holy family. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was not politically correct but rather God correct Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
