Erase The Dividing Line

There are many issues Christians have over non-Christians such as abortion, politics, homosexuality, how to raise your family etc. Most Christians are so bent over proving their issues and snubbing their noses at non-Christians that they forget the ultimate goal of God. He loves all His children and He wants us to come to Him. We can not lead others to Christ by telling someone what they believe is stupid or shaming them for it. What they believe is apart of the sin that is still within them. Which is the same sin that was in you before you became saved. Which is also the same sin you still need to repent for in your walk with Christ. It may not be that specific sin but God sees sin the same so your sin is equal to their sin. "The wages of sin is death" All sin. We need to stop judging and start loving one another. If we lead others to Christ in a loving manner then everything else will come after.

The entire law is summed up in a single command: "Love your neighbor as yourself." If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. Galatians 5:14-15

Telika,

As always, I love your blog. I have passed the link on to many others. I was disappointed when you were busier with the magazine and couldn't blog as much, but I am sorry for the problems you are having with it. I pray that God will lead your project in the right direction.

As for this entry, I think the "love thy neighbor..." commandment is harder to follow than people at first think. you have to find true love and acceptance in yourself before you can truly love and refrain from judging another. We Christians need to work at understanding God accepts and loves us and that is what we must do for ourselves in order to be able to do so for our neighbors.

Keep up the good work. Yours is the most inspiring blog I ever read, for sure.

oh my. i love this entry. I also realized recently how we should develop love for non-Christians. Christians should continually break the barrier that separates them from those who don't know the Gospel. It's the need of non-Christians for Jesus that should attract us to them.
