Our society would have us believe that we are to be tolerant and accepting of anything, "as long as no one gets hurt." Christians are shamed and scoffed for calling sin, "sin". While we are being chastised for being intolerant, we are one of the least tolerated groups that I am aware of. But the Bible is clear on sin. We can't say, "I am a Christian, but I'm only going to believe the Scriptures that make me feel good and I'm not going to espouse the Scriptures that make me or others feel uncomfortable."
Now, having said all that, remember...I'm a grace person. I write about grace and mercy almost every time I sit down to write. So don't jump on me here and say that I'm being judgmental. These are the things that the Lord was speaking to my heart as I slept last night. He wanted me to remind my readers of the "law" side of Him.
We are not to label people, we are to label sin! I recently read a post by Cathy Morton, in which she asked "Do you label others before you know their truth?" This statement resonated with me, because it's exactly how I try to live my life. I fail miserably at times, judging and labeling a person without trying to understand what their story is or where they are coming from. But I can say that I am learning more and more, everyday, to see people and love them, as the Lord sees and loves them.
