IS IT JUDGING TO MENTION SIN?
I find it interesting that many people will use the story of the woman caught in adultery to show how compassionate and non judgmental Jesus was. And HE certainly was loving and compassionate. But even in HIS compassion, HE spoke the TRUTH and told her to “GO AND SIN NO MORE.”
What if she would have smiled at HIM, walked away, and would have climbed right back into another man’s bed? What if she continued to do that, and then tell others that Jesus didn’t condemn her anymore? Would she be telling the TRUTH?
You see, I don’t have to condemn anyone, people condemn themselves by their own actions. Pointing out what SIN is, and quoting scripture is NOT judging people. If I didn’t LOVE people, I wouldn’t say one thing to anyone. I would let them die in their sins and wouldn’t care to open my mouth. Because I DO love them, I must warn them about SIN and of it’s consequences.
And the bible is very clear, not me, but the bible, “No one who abides in Him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen Him or known Him.” 1 John 3:6 You CANNOT deny SCRIPTURE.
You don’t have to be mean to people to warn them. But if someone is trapped in a burning building, does the firemen go gently to the door and tell the people inside, “Hello, I want you to know that I love you. Could you please step outside unless your busy. There’s something we need to talk about. I’m not judging you, nor do I want to offend you or be judgemental. ” NO! He will break the door down if necessary to rescue those inside.
In a spirit of love, to those who hate CHRISTIANS that love you enough to mention sin, I will answer to the Lord in the end, and NOT other people. Blessings.
