I am hearing often from people and ministers “you tell the truth but must be done or spoken in love” I am left trying to understand, exactly what do they mean? They say don’t compromise, but how can you don’t compromise?
2 Timothy 1 v 7, 8, 9 KJV
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel according to the power of God; who hath saved us and called us with an Holy calling, not according to our works but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
In light of “in my opinion” absolute nonsense these people are confusing listeners with, I want to make it clear that
God the Father or Creator of the world is real and wants a relationship with us.
God is not mocked and it is not possible to speak the Truth without offending the listener. “The Truth hurts”. We must remember men love darkness rather than light because our deeds are evil, so any exposure to the truth about our deeds WILL OFFEND to the point of even murder.
Therefore how can we speak the Truth in love without comprise? Someone may be able to explain but it won’t make any sense to me because I know for sure when you love someone you will chasten them and they won’t like it. Myself a prime example of that. However in later days they will thank YOU for guiding them rightly.
Every day I wake up and see the news, it depresses me and feel Christians ought to be blamed.
Christians are The light and salt of the world; where are the light and salt? I can’t see it.
In my opinion and could be controversial, nevertheless I think I ought to share my feelings regarding my Christian brethren (regardless of denominations) in my Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.
First is the fear of saying things that would upset others.
Second is selfishness breathing lovelessness.
Third is mental stability which is lack of power.
My conclusion is unrighteousness which contributes to the current world climate.
God is not mocked and everyone will give account for taking The Lord’s name in vain.
