Political correctness has made us all spineless. It is simply not true that disapproving of someone’s behavior means that you also disapprove of the person.
While it’s cliche to say “hate the sin, love the sinner” the principle is true. Christ spent time with sinners, but never condoned their sin. Far from it. In His presences sinners were convicted.
Still, dispproving of someone’s lifestyle and choices doesn’t call us to condemn them either. Our job, our commandment is to love. But to love them in truth.
No matter what the media or culture tries to tell us, it is inded possible to love someone, but not their behavior. And that’s not hate speech.
I believe this.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
