Christian Cruelty: An Unfortunate Reality
Reply by Frank and Mary Hoffman
The unfortunate problem is that more people seek to do evil than seek to do good. They only seem to want to satisfy the lust of their eyes, the lust of their flesh, and the boastful pride of their lives, which John tells are the basis of all sins. The Holy Spirit prompts everyone of what God desires of us, through what we usually refer to as our conscience. As a result, these hard of heart people try to justify their lifestyle through the distortion of God's word, and by leading others astray into their way of thinking, by playing on their lusts.
We need to remember that the Bible teaches us that the father of lies is the devil. So, if these so-called Christians are part of the lie, they are really following the devil and the spirit of the antichrist. They are not followers of Jesus Christ.
True Christians are known by and through their love for the whole of God's creation.
In the Love of the Lord,

Return to Christian Cruelty: An Unfortunate Reality
The intent of this series is to wake up and encourage the Church to greater works of love and compassion (John 14:12). It is not to condemn the Church, in general, or any individual, any more than Jesus condemned the woman caught in adultery. Jesus said to her, "...go your way. From now on sin no more." (John 8:11) And this is our message to the Church: Recognize our sins of the past and go forth seeking to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48), correcting the sins of the past, for that is the only way we can truly show the world that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, might, and mind, including the whole of creation, which includes our neighbors whom we are to love as ourselves.
