I keep telling ALL; it is not what you do but why you do what you do when you are "IN CHRIST!" I go to "AA" to speak on occasion and have acquired "friends" from that organization! If a "self righteous" religious person saw me taking my friend home or riding with me and knew that person had a drinking problem, he would automatically "assume" I'm now "hanging out with drunks" when in fact, I'm only trying to draw them closer to GOD! II Corinthians 3:17 says "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, THERE IS FREEDOM!"
Therefore, it's all about WHY you do what you do; not what you do! Remember this ALWAYS: We don't have to give in account of our actions to ANYONE "BUT" GOD who "LOOKS AT THE HEART" and KNOWS the motive you have for doing what you do!
WORD SAYS in Mark 2:15-17 "And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and the followed him. And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners? When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
You see? Jesus associated with "publicans and sinners" and is what we should do in order to bring them to Christ; or Repent, which DOES NOT mean as the world has defined "confession" of ALL your sins, rather saying "I BELIEVE!" This is a "Spiritual" journey in which GOD "looks at the heart," and one can't LIE TO THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Paul also said in I Corinthians 9:16-23 "For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; YEA, WOE IS UNTO ME, IF I PREACH NOT THE GOSPEL! For if I do this willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. (v19) For though I be FREE from ALL "men," yet have I made myself SERVANT unto ALL, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law. (v22) To the weak (sinful) became I as weak (talk sinful too), I am ALL THINGS to ALL MEN, that I might by ALL MEANS save some." Do you see the FREEDOM we have in Christ? Not to "glory" self, but to relate to ANYONE to "gain the more
