Are We Teaching the Truth in Love???

As I sit and listen to one of my favorite Christian singing groups, I find myself wondering: Why we are slipping backwards in society today. How can things be getting so bad so fast??? Could it be that we have become so entrenched in the Christian Conservative Movement, that we have forgotten how to care for one another?  Have we become so invested in pointing out what is right and what is wrong, that we are pushing away the people we are supposed to be caring for? Are we becoming so critical of others, that in effect, we are helping the Democrats gain in their ranks???

Teaching the Truth in Love
Lyrics:
Chorus:
Are we teaching the truth in love
Telling it like it is
While holding pure motives
And showing that we care
Are we teaching the truth in love

A man came to my Jesus
Telling all that he had done
To fulfill the good commandments
He knew every single one
But Jesus said there’s something
That indeed he did lack
Yes the savior told the truth
He didn’t hold the message back

(Because)
He was teaching the truth in love
Telling it like it is
While holding pure motives
And showing that He cares
He was teaching the truth in love

A woman caught in evil and without an alibi
The truth, so very obvious, made no attempt to lie
With all the foes against her how she felt so all alone
Until Jesus asked the people who would throw the first stone

Teaching the truth in love
Telling it like it is
While holding pure motives
And showing that He can
He was teaching the truth in love

Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly how we are to share
With our Master’s words of confidence, directly, do we dare?
Should we water down the message, should we tell them only parts?
Will they see Him in our message, will they see Him in our heart?

We’re teaching the truth in love
Give Him the peace of His Love
Yes in love, oh yes in
We’re talking, we’re talking love
Oh, in love, yeah.

When it comes to issues such as Abortion and the Pro-life cause and Homosexuality, people often come off sounding very harsh, very judgemental,  and very unforgiving. There are Conservative Women who have had abortions who are apart of the Conservative Movement and there are Gay Conservatives as well! There are a lot more people who are not Conservative that have had abortions and are Homosexual, that we need to try to reach to change the tide of Socialism in this Country.

We also have the tendency of grouping people who are on Welfare together in a group. There are a lot of people on Welfare that are in true need of the assistance for a short period of time in their lives.

There are many examples of where we could learn to watch what we say and be aware of how it may be coming across to others. I myself, am guilty of this from time to time! So I will need to check myself as well!

The one thing the Democrats have on us Conservatives, is that they are ALL INCLUSIVE and they have NO BOUNDARIES! They have their followers believing that they care more about their well-being than we, as Christian ConservatAre We Teaching the Truth in Love???ives,  do. They are utilizing the way we word things to their fullest advantage, and painting us out to be unfeeling and uncaring and it is working!

As we go out into our neighbourhoods, on social media, and various places to communicate, educate,  and make a difference; please try to keep in mind other people plights, the shoes they have to walk in, and how we may come across to others!

When we begin to speak the truth in love, then and only then will we begin to make a difference!

  1. There was a time when I would have read into the question that you are asking a desire to softsell the Gospel. While I think that the word “love” is defined differently for different people, and that we must define our terms when we use the word; I agree with your post. There is a way to confront lies, love our neighbors by telling them the truth, and spread the gospel without sounding arrogant, condescending and hateful.

    I’ve been blogging for quite a long time. I went back and looked at some of the conversations that I had had years ago. I didn’t even remember writing some of the things I read, and they sounded arrogant, condescending, and so on. I hope I have learned to be more gracious and understanding when I am “speaking” with those with whom I disagree, whether in writing or speaking, even when they are being hateful.

    We must always remember that we are ambassadors of Christ. This doesn’t mean that we need to hide the truth for fear of offense. But at the same time, our demeanor should be that of concern and compassion rather than a pronouncement of guilt.

    Yes, we Christians should work on how we “sell” Christian values and beliefs to the masses but we must remember, “God before politics”. Liberalism which is tightly associated to the Democrat party is responsible for corrupting the souls of millions and I pray that Christian-Conservatives don’t partiscipate in getting votes by any means necessary. Love, have compassion, feel others pain, BUT keep God above our politics.
    The truth in love sometimes hurt feelings, it sometimes tee people off but if we love them, the truth in love will save them, on earth and in what comes after. The truth was something I once ran from, but the truth won, and opened my eyes to my salvation. To win voters, Christian-conservatives need to promote all the good we do around the world, there is an abundance. Remind Christians that God comes before their politics. Liberal-Democrats know how to convince many into falling in line with liberal policy or beliefs, and at least on that accord, conservatives should learn from liberals.
