“Love the Lord your God with all your heart……….AND love your neighbor as yourself”! – Luke 10:27
For sake of time, and too be honest, more so just trusting that we all know what the context of “neighbor” was, we’ll just assume that we all agree in fact that loving the Osteens as well as any one else we agree or disagree with is within our own interpretation of who God said to love, whether they be a brother or sister or, a “Samaritan”!
So, “loving” should push us towards patience, kindness and long-suffering, and, push us away from dishonoring others or keeping a record of “wrongs”, and, it might just hope and maybe, protect………just maybe!
UNLESS we believe our job to warn, reveal and point out is FAR greater than one of the TWO things that Jesus left us with……and left with the idea that ALL other things were subject to these two things. OR maybe we believe we don’t have enough people attacking christianity today???
Delete the 1st four paragraphs and just think on this:
What if by chance “the ones” we think are “diluting” the gospel are just doing what God has called THEM to do?
Maybe it is…..
Maybe it’s not…..
Maybe it’s what they’re saying…..
Maybe it’s what they’re not saying…..
Maybe it’s not what they’re saying but rather what they’re not saying…..
Maybe it doesn’t matter and they’re wrong, they’ve always been wrong and they’re still wrong…..
However, if they’re NOT, that possible chance that they’re NOT wrong, just imagine standing before God and Him saying something like this:
“You attacked the ones who I told to go in MY name, you spoke against the works of MY hands, you called them cultic, you said that it was in NO WAY of Me or MY spirit and that it was the words of a fool”!!!!!
“Well done my good and faithful servant”!
I may or may not agree with some of the things that have been said, but, I will not be that guy!!
I got enough in me to worry about…..
