Help, not Hinder
by Rick Rios
Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to up any stumbling block or obstacle in your brothers way.
No doubt we need to hold each other accountable for the security in the promise of eternity. But let us bring our brothers and sisters back before Christ by following His example when the adulterous woman was to be stoned. Many bible scholars believe Christ wrote the sins of those holding stones in the dirt before them. Seeing that they were as sinful and fallen as the accused, they left. This was not a free pass though, Christ instructed the woman to “go and sin no more.”
Let us lift our brothers and sisters up, encourage them, not judge them but hold them accountable.
