The weapon a child of God has is truth. Walking in the light of God’s revelation and speaking the truth in love may seem threatening to some; but the truth is what frees us and is the only path of fellowship with our creator.
For some weeks,there are many who have been preoccupied
with issues concerning morality;of right and wrong. To some, the borderline between the two is a thick line but to others,a thin one. But no matter how appealing something wrong may seem,it never becomes right.When it comes to practices or acts that are clearly not biblical, those of us who belong to the body of Christ are responsible to clearly state our disapproval of the act because that forms part of our Christian duties as written in Philippians 1:10″so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ”.1 Peter 1:14-16 also admonishes us to stand for the truth always.
However,after reading some few articles on Pastor Devon Franklin who defended his wife publicly when she was asked to cover up due to her inappropriate dress code and people’s views on Manny Pacquiao’s stance on same sex marriage,I realised there are so many Christians who don’t know the right approach in standing for the truth especially when it came to such such sensitive matters which is of much concern to every morally upright person. As God’s children, we’re encouraged to consider every word we say to one another. Verbal abuse surely does not qualify! “If any man among you seem to be religious and bridleth not his tongue, but deceive his own heart,this man’s religion is vain”James 1:26.Visit http://www.amandaferguson blog.WordPress.com and read how a matured Christian addressed the issue concerning Meagan Good’s dressing. I become very disappointed when some Christians only see verbal or physical abuse as the only means to set the wrongs right.In such arguments there are so many ignorant people who misinterpret Biblical verses in the name of standing for the truth or disproving the truth.The word of God has been given to us to check our actions,motives,thoughts and desires so we should all be careful how we interpret every statement in the holy book.
We can’t avoid disapproval. So if you’re to have peoples’ disapprovals either way,you may as well have their disapprovals for standing firm on your beliefs rather than put yourself in a situation that leaves a question mark on the truth you claim to be standing for.
