To Forgive or To Condone?

You will never have a problem finding people to condone sin, But finding the those that refuse to tolerate it in they're lives, are few and far between. I believe it is very important for people to forgive but not condone. You see to forgive is to let go. To Condone means this...

verb [ trans. ]
accept and allow (behavior that is considered morally wrong or offensive) to continue : the college cannot condone any behavior that involves illicit drugs.
• approve or sanction

When we condone sin, we give place to
the devil in our lives. We make room for sin. Are we the judge? no. But ultimately we have a responsibility to guard our fellowship. The bible says what fellowship does darkness have with light? It also says to know them that labor among you. Why? Because you might find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time allowing Satan himself a foothold in your life. Does that mean that we can't ever be around anybody but Christians? no. We are the salt of the earth. But if the salt hath lost its savor then what good is it? It must be cast away. (Luke 14) The word of God tells us in Thessalonians 5:14 to warn them that are unruly.

God give us men and women of God that will get tired of watching ministers abuse, and take advantage of the pulpit and husbands who even who take advantage of headship in the home. Lord convict us and convince us that you are looking for a glorious bride without spot or wrinkle. That you want to keep us pure even as you are pure. Break open our hardened hearts to where we can be fertile ground for the seed of your word once again. Holy Spirit take full control in our lives as we yield to you. Fulfill your mission Holy Spirit in us. Let our communication no longer be corrupt. Break us into a million pieces for the glory of God. Do it Lord for your glory. Not for our glory but for yours.

Many are called but few are chosen.

Sin will separate you from God.

He that hath ears let him hear what the Spirit says to the church.
