Christian love is not political correctness.
These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:Speaking the Truth in Love...The Bible says to....Christians say to.....but what does that even mean?
referring to Ephesians 4:15Speaking the Truth in Love...The Bible says to....Christians say to.....but what does that even mean?
Exactly! Even though the Truth Will Set them free, many reject the truth BECAUSE they are yielding to their feelings and emotions. They only want what they feel will make them feel happy and better and this includes pity.Sometimes the hard things we say, we are really saying in love... because we DO care about them.
Very good Point sister....Can you elaborate a bit? How would that apply to adult Christians?But sometimes we have to be discerning.
Because not everyone is on the same level of maturity. I cannot talk to a 2 year old child the way i talk to a 15 year old man.
Words can be very powerful if not used correctly.
100% honest with ourselves. We are accountable for what we believe. What we know. What God has revealed to us. If we do not act on convictions, we are in a dangerous space with God. Some Christians may be maturer, know better how to communicate. The fact remains however that we answer to our own conscience before God. What convicts us convicts us.
