Letter: Is truth judging?

ENID, Okla. — I pray these words will be received in the spirit they are written.

Holy Spirit, touch the heart of the reader and give your understanding. The fact is, if someone cares enough about another human being to tell him/her the truth, they are exhibiting great love.

Since the beginning of time, God has sent His people to warn those who continue to live contrary to His Word. The purpose of a warning is not to condemn or show hatred, but rather an admonition that something is wrong and a change is needed to avoid harm.

However, the messenger is often the one hated. In fact, one man who delivered truth was even put to death. His name is Jesus. But, He rose from the dead so all who would receive Him could be saved.

Christians warn people because we care for their souls. Truth is still truth, even if no one believes it, sin is still sin regardless of human opinion, and there is still right and wrong even though society denies it. God has already judged all sin.

Therefore, we are merely awaiting sentence.

Those who repent of their sins and accept Jesus Christ as savior are forgiven and have eternal life. Those who refuse God’s Son, Jesus, and continue in sin will receive eternal punishment. This is truth. The writings and opinions of man will pass away, but God’s Word is eternal.

God is merciful and longsuffering. He doesn’t want anyone to perish. His desire is for all to come to repentance. May all who are offended by truth and feels hated or judged for what they or others are doing, please take the time to search out what is true. It’s in the Bible, His name is Jesus and He loves His Creation.

  • Never leave a child or a pet alone in a car

    With temperatures soaring to near or above 100, parents need to know they can’t leave their children alone in a locked vehicle. In 10 minutes, a vehicle’s temperature can climb 19 degrees. A child’s body heats up three to five times faster than an adult’s, and it only takes a few minutes before a child can become dangerously overheated, according to Safe Kids USA.

    I am beginning to believe that Mellon is the poorest Treasurer we ever had. I would like to be Treasurer. Here would be my policy, and you see if it wouldn’t be the best thing for America:
    Save nothing, have nothing in there. Then Congress and the entire nation could have nothing in view only what they made themselves.
