- Nehemiah 8:10
I've been thinking about this a lot and it's been kinda bugging me. Where do we, as Christians, draw the line between loving for and wanting people to find Christ and just being judgmental and lowering our views on others? Because I want to share my faith and invite friends to church and I want them to come to know Christ but I don't want them to feel like they are just a project or goal I am working on. You know? Or that I just pity them. Where do we draw the line between saying that we hurt for them because they are lost and just condemning them to Hell? Because as a Christian, I want to love them and not see them differently but should I see them differently as someone in need? Or is that just judging them? Should we say that we feel sorry for them because they are going to Hell or is that too far? (I actually wouldn't really say that... but something that happened like that sparked my interest). Because to the world, if someone said that, they would be shocked and think that's so out of line, but should we also think that? Because I don't want to just be like "you're going to Hell" but, is it our job to say that? Or is it socially wrong?
I don't feel like I'm making any sense. But, it's just been bugging me.
