Tell the Truth to the Lost

Description

It is important to be gentle when we talk to people who are slipping away from the Lord. However, we still need to communicate clearly that the wages of sin is death.

I’ve been lied to plenty in my life, but there is one person from whom I absolutely must have the truth and nothing but the truth—my doctor. If I have a problem, I want straight talk.

It is indeed important to be gentle and respectful when we talk to people who seem to be slipping away from the Lord. But we still need to communicate clearly and passionately that the wages of sin is death but eternal life is God’s gift.

The congregations in the region of Galatia had been taught that the forgiveness of their sins was a gift of God, received by faith alone.

But they had begun to backslide into ritualism and ceremonialism, and Dr. Paul needed to deliver some straight talk and strong medicine: “You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? . . . I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—which is really no gospel at all” (Galatians 3:1; 1:6,7).

I am certain that there will be people in hell complaining bitterly, “Why didn’t someone tell me?”
