People get offended when we speak in acordance to the scriptures..., people feel irritated when someone corrects them. SO my question is Am I my Brothers/sisters keeper?
Are you there keeper? NO!
Should you point out an error? YES!
So make your point, discuss it with them and drop it.
2Ti 2:24-26 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
Should you argue with them? NO!
If it becomes an arguement walk away, its in both their and the Lords hands at that point.
2Ti 2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
I think being humble is the key. If we cannot find the words / given the words by the Holy Spirit we can pray for the brother/sister. We can also do like Christ show them love even when they are being a jerk.
And when others are always bringing in error and pulling standards down to the level of the world should they be surprised when some are willing to meet that error and raise the standard ?
Correcters need to repent? Don't understand. Explain please. If an error is clear are we not obligated to point it out in a loving manner?
Thank you Jason. Good things to ponder.
