I thought this was very good from a great blogger friend of mine. It is so important to speak the truth when called by the Lord to do so – we just need to remember that those who don’t believe upon Christ are like “blind” men. We also must remain loving at the same time. Big topic on my heart lately – grace, love AND truth are all vital!
One of the most widespread arguments against Christians is that they are “judgmental” or “always imposing their views on others.” Often, this criticism comes in response to Christians who speak out against behaviors and lifestyles that God judges as “sin” and has declared to be an outrage to Him (see Proverbs 16:1). We live in a society where “everyone [does] what [is] right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25)—where people insist that there are no moral absolutes, that each man should decide for himself what is right or wrong, and that we should “tolerate” (meaning “celebrate”) sinful activities. Those who take seriously the biblical warnings against sin and dare speak out against evil are written off as religious fanatics, and all Christians are, ironically, judged as being “judgmental.”
The Scripture that is used the most to support the idea that Christians should not judge is Matthew 7:1

Love looks different to some people.
For my incredibly blunt Christian friend, loving a gay person means saying extremely harsh things that are similar to what a Westboro member might say… BUT, my friend says that he’s simply being truthful and blunt, because he doesn’t want God’s wrath on anybody.
It’s strange, what he calls being loving, but I can’t really complain, because his boldness is what led to me being saved.
And by his boldness, I mean in how unashamed he was in telling me the Gospel.
You have a good friend indeed Bernicium. Thank God for his boldness 🙂
