You have no right to criticize your brother or look down on him. Remember, each of us will stand personally before the Judgment Seat of GodĒ (Romans 14:10). The Living Bible
We should not rejoice when someone has failed to live in Godís commandments and strays outside of His protection.
In this hour and day, our enemy is devising plans to bring destruction to anyone that calls Jesus Lord and those that donít. For that reason, we must stay close to Him during this season of onslaught. People would be foolish to flirt with sin but if they do, as Christians, we should quickly go to their sides to help bring restoration. Any one of us could be the person to bring the gospel of salvation to them and any one of us could also plunge to despair.
Our human natures sometimes want to condemn a person that openly sins against God and man. Even when a person sins, God still sees the potential He put in them to succeed. We must intend to join Godís vision for them and offer help if possible.
If we donít know someone personally that has sinned, we can agree with God that they will be restored and renewed to live out Godís will for their lives.
We cannot judge the severity of any sin. That is Godís job and He has set aside a day for judgment. Help us have a heart of compassion and understanding to pray for anotherís loss instead of cheering. Amen.
Thank you for writing this. It needs to be read and really heard by each and every one of us. None of us want our "failures" (sin) to be broadcast internationally via the media. Yes, I do pray for those that fall to be restored. GOD BLESS YOU FOR PUTTING THIS OUT THERE.
