TELL IT THE WAY IT IS...


The Truth cannot be seen by the
unbeliever if we sugar coat everything

a duck is a duck, no matter how you dress it
~if it waddles, if it quacks and if it has webbed feet...most likely it is a duck!

Sometimes, as depicted in this cartoon...a sheep is nothing more than a sheep!

THE SAME IS TRUE FOR SIN!

sin is sin, no matter how you disguise it
~if it goes against Gods Word and His design...then it is sin.

period.
end of discussion.
JOHN 8:31b, 32 "If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; (32) and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
SOMETIMES WE JUST HAVE
TO TELL IT THE WAY IT IS!

Who can you share the Truth with today?

Amen! There are many who need to understand this principle...sin is sin...there is no gray and there is no "little white" lie. It doesn't matter if others can see your sin or know about it...Jesus sees it and He knows about it. That is what matters.

Thanks for a powerful message today, Laurie!

Preach it sister! This is such a hard thing to get across in our 'gray' world.

Hope you are feeling better. Like the new blog layout. Feeling the need to make mine over.

Great post. Sugarcoating sin doesn't make it any less sin. I had a hard time relating with that as a younger Christian.

I am so with you,AMEN!!!

When speak God's Truth I use to say "I hope I didn't offend you."

Not anymore.

Blessings Laurie...Powerful message of LOST SHEEP and SIN!!! or convicting sheep in sin...or guiding us that when we do not abide in His Word and know His truth...that we fall into sin.
As always...the best! Hope you are doing well and feeling better.
