Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.
In our culture today it has become politically correct to accept whatever someones views may be. We are told that if we don't accept it that we are intolerant. I find it sad that many churches have taken this view as well. The Bible says that sinners will go to hell, and praise God that he sent His Son to save us from hell. But if we see a Christian brother or sister who is following a path that the Bible clearly states is wrong, why are we so afraid to go to them in Christian love and help them to see what the bible says about this? This verse is a great verse to ponder. I also feel strongly that today Christians are too afraid to share their faith. They don't want to offend someone by saying that sin is sin. If we are truly saved, then we need to be able to stand and say sin is sin. We should always be ready to give a reason for our beliefs and to share the gospel with others. As our culture takes more stands on saying that sin is ok, we need to be just as firm to stand up for the Lord and what we believe in. Our children will be watching us...we need to set for them a good example of what we believe in and WHY we believe it, so that they will understand, and one day they will be able to give an answer for their beliefs.
