    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

A More Consistent Walk

Staff Member
Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don't touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the LORD Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:17-18 NLT

While instructing the church at Corinth to avoid partnerships with unbelievers, Paul quotes several Old Testament passages (which you see in today's verses) that reiterate what he was saying. Meanwhile, he points out that such obedience comes with a promise: God welcomes those who separate themselves from unbelievers.

Throughout the centuries, Christians have struggled between the tension of what Paul said here and what Jesus said in John 17:14 about Christians remaining in the world, while not belonging to it. It's a complicated proposition, but both admonitions are true.

What does the struggle look like in your household? Are you instructing your children to be lights for Jesus among the lost children at school while also warning them against the pitfalls of this world? Are you talking to the lost while also rejecting their lifestyle? The world won't be very appreciative of the fact that you're living differently, but God will welcome you.

Prayer: Lord, navigating the tension between wanting to be a witness for You while also wanting to avoid everything this world holds sacred is difficult sometimes. Lead me to walk more consistently.
As with anything one would choose to do, when one becomes consistent... dedicated to it, we become one with it and it with us. A fine tuned tool, doesn't have a flaw. Only what we are one with should we hear speak; even if it's a stapler.
All glory be unto God.
