Jesus came to save men from sin.
As His followers, we’re called to stand firm (Matthew 10:22), share Christ, and teach people to obey Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).
Our culture has approved many acts of immorality that damage people’s souls, and there is great pressure for Christians to conform.
If we want to be like Jesus, we will love men enough to tell them the truth about sin - even sins that are approved and celebrated by our culture. It’s hateful, not loving, to do otherwise.
This won’t make us popular, but we can identify with our Lord:
“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you”’ John 15:18-19
We can stand firm with Jesus, or bend with the culture.
We can’t do both.
