It seems that this a become a taboo topic even amongst believers from comments I see on other sites. I know we have different struggles and temptations, but outright denying something is wrong/sinful when it is clearly laid out in scripture I will never understand. On to the world, some believers shy away from certain topics because they are afraid of being called judgemental, unkind, unloving, and hateful. This is the biggest trap one can fall into because it suppresses the truth for fear of offending and hurting feelings. While it is important to focus on loving and talking about the love of Jesus we must tell the complete truth and that also includes repentance, salvation, and all sins. I also think people get condemnation and conviction confused not the same thing.

To someone who is blinded and confused they may not know the difference between conviction and condemnation. That may need a person who can walk in the fruits of the spirit. Or in some it may take a great deal of fasting and praying.

Are you referring to believers or non-believers about not knowing the difference?

Ive seen people who don’t attend church but believe in Jesus but some don’t even know if they are saved or not. They will straight up ask you how do I know? I pray that they can come in contact with a God loving person or church that will have the patience that God had with me…. And continues to. I guess this would be the in between people. Unchurched but searching. A person who trusting someone don’t come easy.

Sadly, they may be the ones left standing on Earth after the rapture. As Jack Kelley stated, they needed one more sign or piece of evidence for faith. When the rapture happens, they get left behind, but may get saved and are part of the great multitude that are saved.

While they may not come to faith in the age of grace and experience the rapture, the seeds that the workers (you and me) sowed will bear fruit after the rapture. Praying that everyone makes a decision now rather than later. :pray

I write often about homosexuality and “trans”-cultism because there are no more serious threats to fundamental speech rights and religious liberty than the efforts to use public education, the law, Big Business, Big Tech, the mainstream news media, and the arts to normalize homosexuality and gender confusion.
quoted also ... "If we truly love our friends and family members lost in sexual darkness, we must tell them the truth, no matter what the personal cost to us, always remembering that our salvation came at the greatest cost of all."


Answer is found in Romans chapter 1:
28. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29. being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32. who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

I am far from perfect and have had many sins I was never won over by someone who condemned me. It was the ones that loved me till I saw what had hold of me.
This part is so me- I try and find the balance between saying the word of God without sounding I am condemning people’s lifestyles choices while trying to show them love. I know a couple who are living in an inappropriate relationship would love to witness without condemning them.
