Judge or to be Judged?
Oooops, what a touchy subject. Yes, and even more so is what I just read in the Bible. If only we Christians, our churches would read I Corinthians 5 over and over. Like when we home-schooled our boys, and made them write...I will not hit my brother... 100 times. Read it and see if you're understanding it the same way I am. It actually says we, Christians are not to even eat with...no, not unbelievers, but fellow believers that are in sin. No, not fellow believers that are struggling, trying to work out their sins.(aren't we all) No, not fellow believers that make mistakes. (don't we all) But fellow believers that are in sin and give excuses for it, or think it's okay for them, or even deny it? And this chapter also says to associate freely with non-believers. Yes, those in sin. The same sin that fellow believers may be in. Whoa, you say. I didn't say to condone the sin, or engage the sin, but to associate with the non-believers freely. How can we, children of God be witnesses to the world if we hide from the non-believers? And how can we, children of God be witnesses if we associate with fellow believers who think they are okay to sin? Hmmmm. A little confusing. A little controversial. A little riskay! Read the chapter and share your thoughts.
