To Talk Or Not To Talk?
1- All things must be done in the fear and admonition of the Lord. God is real, HIS people are important (from greatest to least) and they deserve leadership and direction that will help lead them to the cross instead of away from truth. Even though each individual has responsibility for their spiritual condition, leadership can cause people to go astray, suffer and possibly be lost.
Isaiah 9:16 ~ "For the leaders of this people cause [them] to err; and [they that are] led of them [are] destroyed."
2- The intent of correction must be to never to cast aspersions or unfounded allegations. There is no pride regarding pointing out sins and apostate teachings of false leaders and individuals. First, remember however that there is much misinformation in the internet and some of it is carried by those who are otherwise considered credible sources. Example, if you listen to some radicals supposedly bringing correction to the body of Christ, every gospel singer is either unsaved or a homosexual and every media preacher is in the same condition. Common sense says that that can't be a fact, but, truth is that far too many of them are in that or a similar condition.
I simply say, since we're in the age of video camera, 3 and 4 G phones, instant messaging etc, there should easily be something tangible to support allegations of improprietous living and ungodliness, because sin has a nature that cannot be contained. Revealing what is said can be easy because so many false teachers want to either be on camera or tape spreading their lies, but suggestions toward lifestyle can also be captured if it really is the case that people are living and promoting ungodliness. IE: If someone is wrong, it will be openly seen and revealed...let the evidence speak for itself even if it needs to be contextualized.
Prov. 6:16-19 ~ "16-These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him: 17- A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18- An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19- A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren."
No Need To Fear
3- Don't be afraid because a "spade" must be called a "spade" and holiness must be outlined plainly and clearly. It is the silence of individuals that allows sin to proliferate. As I posted previously, here are simply a few of those who thought they could use the "silence" of the godly to continue and promote their sins, but were sadly mistaken.
The Wall Of Perverted Shame & Godly Justice
Let's remember for a minute what we have witnessed in recent history:
