Sunday's Scripture #3

1 John 1:8 (New King James Version)

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Ever had that friend who swore up and down their life was flawless? They constantly put on this act like everything was well and they were without sin. Of course you play along and avoid calling them out for the sake of peace, but you are fully aware that them saying that is the farthest thing from the truth. "He who is without sin, be the first to cast the stone" (John 8:7) in reference to the adulteress woman.

Here's a news flash people: we are all sinners! And whether people on Earth know everything you've done to be able to cast proper judgement, just know that God sees it all! You may be perfect in the eyes of man, but God knows your heart. People don't want to hear the truth because it means you need to make adjustments and changes.. and who really wants to change up their lifestyle? The biggest reason we don't want to know the truth? Because it means acknowledging that something is wrong with us. As Christians, we are obligated to receive truth gracefully, as well as give it. Stop going to the same people for advice who will just tell you what you want to hear, rather than what you need to hear. Those are not true friends, just saying.. check your circle; it might need some tightening.. nothing a couple screws & bolts won't fix though :)

    "As Christians, we are obligated to receive truth gracefully"

    I dont think a generation(or two) got the message. I beat my friends down with the truth.. If they hate me in the end after they come out they shit- I didnt need they friendship no how.. Time is to precious to let someone know the truth, cuzz they missin out on LIFE.

    The Pastor got sin in his life.Errbody do.. Being Christian is a lifestyle we aint perfect- we only strive towards perfection. Hit dat one on da head GlO. -Q.
