      Judging 101, Pt. 2

      1Tim. 5:20 Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the
      rest also
      may be fearful of sinning.  

      Our church is plagued with fear to expose the truth, even when it’s the truth
      that the word
      says makes you free! We at EX Ministries may call out a few names of Christians
      that do things
      contrary to the teaching of Jesus in the church and people think we are judging
      them.
      But the information we give it is on the internet, in magazines, and other forms
      of media, yet
      for some reason, when we repeat it, people call that judging and are ready to
      cut our throats! We
      are only bringing clarity to things that are said and done that are contrary to
      the Word! Isn’t that our job?
      People act like it’s OUR FAULT that some of the people we use as examples are
      doing the things
      they do against the truth. We receive vicious threats and profane emails nearly
      everyday from people
      defending various “Gospel” singers because of things that the artists themselves
      are doing that do not
      line up with scripture. We are living in a sad day when people will fight to
      protect their favorite singers
      rather than stand up for the truth of the Word of God. And whatever happened to
      that thing we used to
      have as saints of God called DISCERNMENT? Check the bible people!
      Stating the truth is what Jesus taught us to do. Paul called out people publicly
      for what
      they did. Some to their face (Peter in Galatians 2:14) and some he called out
      when they
      were not present to warn people of their contrary deeds (Hymenaeus and Alexander
      in
      1Timothy 1:20). Now, had their contrary deeds been done privately, then I’m sure
      Paul
      would have dealt with them privately. But when it’s done openly, it requires
      open rebuke
      according to the word.  

      So don’t get disturbed when you hear that someone is doing something they
      shouldn’t.
      We are the body of Christ and we are to keep each other lifted up when we fall.
      We are to
      keep the lines of the Kingdom of God visible according to the word and we are to
      stay on guard
      so the enemy cannot infiltrate. Jesus said the gates of hell shall not prevail
      against the
      church. That means that we must close off all doors or openings that the enemy
      seeks to
      enter into the church. Make sure you keep a good understanding about the word
      and know
      that we do not judge the world, but we have people that God has called to judge
      his people.
      Apostles, prophets, and evangelists, are here to state truth and judge
      situations that require it in the church of God.  

      Suggested Reading: 1Tim 5:20, 1 Cor 5:1-10, 1Tim 1:20, Gal 2:14, Titus 1:10, 2
      Tim 4:2
