Speaking out against sin, injustice and immorality is not judging. It is the standard of Christ, His kingdom and His people.
Christians clearly need to read their bibles. Did you know that when you don't speak up for God He will hold you responsible for the blood of sinners as if you committed the act?
Did you know that when you don't speak you deny Him? When you deny Him He will deny you access to Heaven?
Did you know that Christians will judge angels, demons and the world? Did you know judgement starts in the house of God first?
If you didn't maybe you should OPEN YOUR BIBLE AND READ IT!
Instead of forming an opinion form a God thought based upon scripture.
Did you know being an undercover Christian will not get you into heaven or a real relationship with God?
You will be tested. Your belief will be put on trial. You will be forced to speak on where your true alliance is. Your response indicates whether you belong to God or not.
Scripture reference that confirm what I am saying.
Ezekiel 3, Ezekiel 2, Jeremiah 1:17-19, Matthew 10:16-26, 2 Timothy 4:2, Matthew 5:13-16, I Corinthians 6:1-6, I Peter 4:17-18, John 15:18-25 Luke 12:8-12 Luke 12:2 Matthew 10:33 I Peter 4:12-19
(There are more trust me!)Much more!
Passive people are powerless people. Assertive people are bold for Christ, yet still walk in love, compassion and wisdom. Open mouths, versus closed mouths.
Did you know you WILL be persecuted for righteousness sake? If Jesus could not avoid trouble and He was perfect what makes you think you can?
There are two reasons why Christian don't speak.
1. They claim Christ but there actions, ideas, motives and habitual sin all indicate they really don't belong to Him.
2. Fear wanting to avoid confrontation or overly concerned about how they will be perceived.
Again if they hated Jesus without cause what makes you think your going to avoid being hated? Better yet why do you care?
You can speak to someone in love. You can honor God, and lovingly speak against their lifestyle in love.
Did you know you said you belong to Christ? Act like it!
If you didn't know now you know!
