More on Picking up the Darkness

“Sometimes sharing truth can be called fault-finding. In the light of God’s Word, we are called to hold people accountable to the Word of God as believers. The church today has gone too soft on living for God. We wouldn’t want to call another member to repentance especially if we haven’t dealt with our own sin (1 Cor. 5:11-12).”

Thank you for the reminder. I agree. It is true that people could be called faultfinders when in fact they are confronting a brother biblically. It is also true that a person could be a faultfinder in the bad sense and justify himself that his is only holding Christians accountable to the Word of God.
Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. (Gal. 6:1)
