You are so very wrong! I’ll show you!

Posted: October 8, 2014 in Uncategorized

Angry_WomanI’ve got some scripture that’ll teach you just how wrong you are!” Is it our job to teach other Christ followers that they are so wrong? I mean about all sorts of things, not just the “big ones”. Stay with me! I agree with Scripture that we are to judge other Christ followers, (not the lost), as instructed in God’s Word. ( 2 Tim. 2:16-17, 2 Tim. 4:14-15 and 1 Tim. 1:19-20. 3 John 1:9-10, Galatians 2:11-14, 1 Tim. 5:20Matt. 18:15-17.)  But how? With other Christ followers: In love, in an attempt to bring them back to God, not to drive them away!

So many of us feel it’s our responsibility to correct everything some one says, posts on public media, believes or follows because “we know better, they’re wrong and they need to know it!” Feeling personal conviction I wanted to share my thoughts on this very subject but I ran across an excellent article where it is explained so much better than I feel qualified to write.
