We need to write an article one day dealing with how a Christian can be loving in the context of pointing out error. Some people have accused me recently of being “un-christian” and even “ unloving” because of what I wrote on my Facebook and blogs about a person who was to be a speaker with me at the same homeschool convention (and was to be appearing at soon—that’s an interesting story as you will eventually see in the article linked to below).
If I saw a child playing with something harmful (e.g., poison), but thought it would be unloving to stop the child from doing this and warn them, I would not be doing what a concerned Christian should. Likewise, the Lord uses all sorts of ways to help us learn lessons and to mature in the Christian faith, including chastening.
There are many dangers within the church, including those created by Christian leaders who detrimentally affect our children and their faith in the Lord and His Word. It would be very unloving of me not to warn parents about this situation.
Well, some of you already know that because I warned parents to be very discerning about a recent homeschool conference, which resulted in me being eliminated as a speaker from two more of these conferences.
Below is a link to an article that appeared on my Facebook and the www.answersingenesis.org website.
Some verses of Scripture I wanted to bring to your attention before you read this (and I also encourage you to go to my public Facebook site and read the numerous postings and comments):
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.” (John 15:18)Go to our recently posted web article for more information.
“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:10)
To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. (Proverbs 21:3)
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.” (Matthew 7:15)
“Woe to you when all men speak well of you,” (Luke 6:26)
