I challenge you to be more honest.


Now I am not saying that you the reader is lying, but I am saying you are not giving the full story. This is lying through omission, which is not correct.
As a result many that think themselves to be “Christian” in reality are not. A prime example is the Homosexual man that stood before the Supreme Court during the recent hearing about gay marriage. He held a sign saying he was both Christian and Gay, which per the Bible you cannot be both. You must choose one and abandon the other. Since he has embraced that he is gay, then he is not a “Christian.”
This is honesty, this is facts. Do I hate him for it? No, but I bet several of you reading this post just stopped and are refusing to continue to read. Those that did are in the wrong. While those that continue to read and will not verbalize and type as I just did are not being honest with themselves or those that we are commissioned to reach.
This leads people like this man down the wrong path. A path where they envision themselves living with their lover in heaven.
Again this is a misnomer. For instance Heaven is but a wait area until the time of the Rapture or the Great White Throne Judgment. We are not to live in heaven forever, this is a man-made falsify of not understanding fully the Bible. Do I know the Bible completely? No, but I know it more than those that believe these false teaching and continue to pass their errors on to others.
We are to study and know the Bible so we can be fully honest and upright with all. We are to talk to them in love and equality even though they may live in sin. For we are to counsel them on the errors of their ways so that they may grow in their faith and turn from their sins.
Will we lose all our sins immediately? No, for the most part, for we are humans and we are corrupt. Even Jesus stated in John 15 that God Himself would prune us, tearing away sin after sin so that each time as we grow in our faith we would bear new and sweeter fruit unto the Lord.
So again I challenge you. Be more honest with those you see can be reached and try to get them to understand that they must turn from all their sins even though it will take time to cast them off, but they must turn from those sins which are considered to be worse than others by the Bible itself. For to live in these you say to God that they are more important than He is and when the time comes he will say He does not know you.
