Redeeming Religion from Playing God
Discerning Rotten Fruit from Casting Stones of Condemnation
1. Am I going to the Root of the Issue (i.e.: addressing the injustice or lovingly confronting the sinning fellow- sinner) or gossiping/complaining to others?
2. Am I holding myself to the Same Standard to which I am holding the other?
3. Am I seeking this person’s/organization’s genuine Restoration With God or am I just uncomfortable and scandalized by their actions?
4. Am I remembering the Humanity and Dignity of this person, treating them with due respect, or am I dehumanizing them?
5. Is this an Actual Issue of “Rotten Fruit” or is it just that the other person doesn’t look, live, or behave according to my preferences?
