they love this verse, sarah
Ephesians 4:15 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
15But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
and especially that phrase. I learned to get your guard up whenever someone started talking about "speaking the truth in love". it meant you were gonna get blasted.
It seems there are 2 types of Christians: Great Commission Christians (Go into all the world and preach the gospel so that they might be saved) and Great Commandment Christians ( love the lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself) You can see how Great Commission Christians could interpret their mission to "save" everyone would mean to define and eradicate sin. On the other hand, Great Commandment Christians can be wishy-washy when it comes to confronting sin, but are also very welcoming to all who want to know more. That helps explain why fundies are so intent on pointing out the sins of others.
