Behold How We Love One Another

We are taught to express in practical and outward ways our love for each other. It looks impressive and frankly, it is designed to. However, it will be gone in an hour. Every bit of it. If our pastor says so. No more greetings, smiles, hugs, phone calls, visits, babysitting, jobs, help, family ties, friendships, advice, assistance, encouragement, etc. The purpose being to shame you, break you, humble you, chasten you, purge you, discipline you, control you. You may be a loving and close member for thirty years or more, but will be blackballed in a day. No questions asked, per pastor’s orders.

But God says, “But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in himJohn 3:17.

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
