  • The problem I see with a lot of "So-Called" religions is the loss of the repent portion of coming to Jesus Christ. We all must "Turn Away" from our past and do those things that God would approve of. It is not our lot in life to judge someone else, but when a fellow Christian is doing things that are contrary to the teachings of Jesus we must talk to them. Talk to them out of love and try to get them to understand the fruits of the Spirit we are all supposed to be exhibiting. Helping a brother or sister back on the right road is something special. If the brother or sister does not listen or gets angry at what they consider 'sticking your nose where it does not belong', then at least you gave it an effort. It is better than doing nothing at all and let your brother or sister continue to be the wrong example of a Christian to others. I hope and pray that my brothers or sisters in Christ will do this for me if I fail to be a proper example to others.

  • @bhobbs-Thank you for your comment. Repentance is an individual choice and reveals the condition of the heart. We all sin DAILY. Matt 5:28 says "...anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart." So by this scripture, even our thoughts cause us to sin. We should all be "teachable" and humble enough to receive correction. If not, the consequences (as depicted in my column) can lead to "death".
