HOW PEOPLE JUSTIFY SIN
Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
I have sadly watched leaders wilfully choose to disobey God, and when I have spoken face to face with them, they have taken the following actions.
PUSH YOU AWAY
People knowingly living in disobedience, always put distance between themselves and long-standing friends offering godly counsel.
They will play the game until they find someone who says they are innocent – and it wasn’t their fault.
Deception is a poor foundation for the future.
They choose to then reject all counsel and advice that wants to deal with the failure – and bring godly restoration.
MAKE YOU THEIR ENEMY
Because of your stance for righteousness you are then made their enemy – lacking kindness and grace.
They call it – legalism.
FIND NEW APPROVING FRIENDS
Sadly too many people think kindness toward the sinner means ignoring the failure and celebrating the new world they have chosen to make.
They always build a new world with new friends.
A fresh start – is not the same as – a new beginning.
ONLY WHAT IS UNDER THE BLOOD – CAN BRING A NEW GOD BEGINNING.
