I ask sincerely, "What was the intention of your original post that got us into this discussion?"
"Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church."
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
"How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
