Courage To Speak The Truth

It really takes incredible courage to speak the truth these days. Speaking the truth will cause you to be immediately labeled intolerant, narrow minded, archaic, out of touch, and a hater. Yet at some point this generation must come to terms with the fact that there is a Sovereign over the universe, and though His steadfast love endures forever, the reception of that love is predicated upon repentance from that which He calls wickedness. People love to mention the account of the woman caught in adultery whom He forgave, but they conveniently leave off the closing statement He delivered in that account, "Now go and sin NO MORE." It's not hate to call sin an abomination, it is LOVE. It is love that points out there is poison in a bottle or a snake in your bed. Only someone who HATES you would say you're fine in bed with the viper or drinking the poison.
