The Danger of Speaking Truth without Love

We were pulling into the parking lot of my church when the DJ mentioned a controversy surrounding a burgeoning Christian recording artist. Apparently, she had appeared on a popular daytime talk show and there was an uproar about it. I was waiting to hear what had happened on the show that caused such a stink. What did she do?  Then I realized, with sinking dread, she didn’t do anything. Nothing happened. There was no incident, per say. Her crime was just showing up. Because, you see, the talk show host is gay. My heart sank. Are we reading the same Bible? I know what Scripture says about that issue and let me be clear, I’m not here to debate or deny that.  But who did Jesus hang out with? To love the lost like Jesus, we need to move in closer.
