I don’t care how much you care until I know how much you know.
You are probably saying, “Huh?” Let me explain. I am sick and beyond sick of hearing limp-wristed Christians apologize for the fact that there is black & white truth called scripture and some of it isn’t pretty.
They say, “people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” I say that it doesn’t matter how much you care unless you know enough to be able to help them find the truth!
Wake up people. You were never told to hold a popularity contest to gain favor with sinners showing them how awesome your tolerance of their wickedness is. You were told to take God’s message of redemption to the world. This message includes sin, hell, penalty, and damnation just as much as it does grace, mercy, love, and peace.
Tell the whole story or you ain’t tellin’ God’s story. God doesn’t need you to spiff up His image in order to make him marketable! God doesn’t need an image consultant and if He did, it wouldn’t be you! Have the courage to face the truth.
