10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
It is so easy to pat someone on the back and tell them that it’s OK what they are doing when deep down we know the word says it is sin. Trust me, I know it is hard to tell people closest to you that the Bible condemns their actions. It is much easier when it is people you do not know. No one wants those that are close to them to be angry, but I would rather hurt their feelings and tell them the truth than God to see me lie to them. You see when we say we are servants and followers of Christ we agreed to do the things that take us out of our comfort zone. We are in a time today that people act as though Christians are the bad guys because we don’t accept certain things and change our ways to what is the new normal. Well my outlook is like the apostle Paul, if I preach to make people feel good and it goes against the word, I am not fit to be a servant of Christ. I know it is a hard road, but, like I said, I would rather tell a man the truth and hurt is feelings, than to lie to him and be on the wrong side of God.
