Guarding the Mind Against Ungodly Thinking

There is the statement that what you think affects your actions, what you feed into your system affects how you act.  You eat rotten food, you get sick.  You eat healthy food, you get better.  The same goes on what you nourish your mind with.

When Satan tempted Eve in the garden in Genesis 3, that was really the first battle for the mind.  In Genesis 3:22 it says, "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:"  The problem was that man was not knowledge itself but it was the knowledge of evil was soon implanted.  All because of this one action that every person ends up getting ungodly thoughts the moment they enter the age of accountability.  If there were no impure thoughts then there would be no sin but the knowledge of evil is there in the minds of every human being today.

The mind is a constant battlefield aside from the evil of t…

Christ is Not Just a Savior from Hell, He's Also a Savior From Sin

One of the greatest mistakes of evangelism today is to teach the Lord Jesus Christ as a Savior from Hell but not a Savior from sin.  The "Easy Christianity" crowd just want to be saved from the eternal consequence of sin but not from their sins.  It is highly offensive to the holiness of God that He should send His only begotten Son to die for sinners only to give sinners a license to sin.

Matthew 1:21 says, "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins."  Even before the incarnation of Christ as God becoming man, it was already announced by the angel Gabriel that Jesus would save His people from their sins.  The message has been salvation from our sins and not in our sins.  True that good works do not merit to earning salvation but one cannot deny that God's grace saves men from their sins.  Ephesians 2:10 still declares, "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good w…

Christianity Is a Call to Hate Sin and Stand for the Holiness and Honor of Almighty God!

Titus 2:11-14 states that the grace of God leads one to be zealous of good works and to reject ungodliness.  Anybody who teaches that the grace of God is a license to sin is not saved.  Ephesians 2:8-9 and Romans 4:5 is no way a comfort for false converts that they can live like the rest of the world and still be considered saved.  Even if salvation cannot be lost but it does not mean that anybody who is saved will not get a real, transformed life.

1 Corinthians 6:11 states the wonderful truth of a life change saying that before you were saved, you were really unworthy and your wickedness showed it.  Now you are saved, you definitely are going to have a new life by the grace of God.  When there is a true conversion, true repentance and true faith then it goes daily.  You got saved, you are getting saved and you will be saved.  You repented of your sins, you are repenting of your sins and you will repent of your sins.  You are converted, you are being converted and you will be conver…

The Prosperity Gospel Is Like a Casino

It is indeed hypocritical for somebody to condemn the evils of gambling while being part of the prosperity gospel movement.  Years ago after I got out of Roman Catholicism and trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for salvation, I started supported almost any ministry blindly.  I really was attracted to a certain charismatic pulpit.  It did not preach a God that was all love, it spoke of the coming judgment of God, it really spoke against the evils of the Vatican but it also taught the garbage of the prosperity gospel.  The pastor claimed to be a healing man but in fact, if he could really heal the sick then why does he not go to where the healing is really required?  It was all a sham of a pulpit because of all the fake healing conducted in the name of Jesus. 
The problem of the prosperity gospel movement has always been give me your money and God will increase it.  It has become a combination of typical financial scams with religion.  These movements have violated God's standa…

If That Religion Brings No Change, That Religion Is in Vain

James 1:26-27 warns, "If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.  Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world."

Is your religion really changing your heart, pervading your manners and transforming you into a new creature or has it made you worse?  The problem with manmade religion and its focus on ritualism is that it is nothing more than a change of rituals, not a real change of character.  I have observed how people convert from one religion to another but there is really no real transformation.  One may go ahead and learn a different ritual like the Rosary or claim to "speak in tongues" but if there is really no change of heart, no pervading of manners and no transformation into new creatures then there is really no true and real conversion.

Accepting Persecution is Part of Christian Life

When I was newly converted, I wondered why the world hated Christians and the Gospel until I started studying the Bible for myself. The more I looked at the Bible, the more I realized how hostile is the world to the Gospel.  The world view has every other way but the Gospel.  It accepts the truth only when it is convenient.  Otherwise, it chooses to slander the people of God with lies.  It is true indeed that a half-truth is more deceitful than an obvious lie.  The people of the world know how to twist the truth and subtly insert their lies.  Satan knew how to do it when he misquoted Scripture in his vain attempt to cause the Lord Jesus Christ to sin.

Satan is not called the god of this world for nothing because he controls the world system.  When he caused Adam and Eve to sin, the whole world system fell into sin as Romans 5:12-15 says, "Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until…

Charles Spurgeon on a Humble Desire

Ezekiel 11:19-21 and 36:26-27 declares that when God saves the person, a new heart is given with new desires which leads to a new life.  1 Corinthians 6:11 declares that when the person is saved, the past life characteristics of being unworthy to inherit God's Kingdom becomes a different person as a result of being imputed with the righteousness of God.  The call for the Christian life is one of humility and never to boast.

Ephesians 2:8-10 declares that salvation has always been by faith and not of works so no man could boast.  Doing good works for the believer is the result of the grace of God and not of works so no man could boast.  Titus 2:11-14 teaches that even the good works of the believer is by the unmerited grace of God.  Grace is something that you do not deserve.  When Christians get saved, this grace makes them live differently - it creates a growing gratitude that does not want to keep on sinning.  Romans 7:14-25 reveals how the struggle for sin is a reality but th…

Do We Forget Satan Also Infiltrates Churches?

It is very easy to detect some of Satan's more obvious attacks.  While reading about the Roman Catholic use of the "Holy Office" or the "Spanish Inquisition", it was a very obvious head-on attack against born again Christianity.  It does not look like Rome wants to be their friend when the Inquisition gets busy in doing all forms of obviously bloody tortures to giving them painful deaths in the hopes of maintaining their power and grip towards people's lives.  It is obvious that when Muslim terrorists kill Christian missionaries that they are not even posing as false friends.  Any direct form of persecution is an obvious red alert that Satan really hates Christians.  But remember, Satan is only allowed to inflict harm on Christians with God's permission as mentioned in Job.

What one must note is that the war against Christianity is never always on the obvious.  Remember Jesus warned in Matthew 7:14-16 of wolves that come in sheep's clothing.  It is…

Your Comfort Zone Does Not Guarantee Your Safety

I remembered the quote by John Calvin saying that men are in greater danger in their prosperity than in their danger.  The more one is in prosperity the easier it is to be ensnared by the Devil.  When one is in the comfort zone, it is very easy to ignore danger.  Thieves usually strike during the night because most people are in the comfort of their sleep.  When one is in a comfortable bed, it is very easy to stay asleep and hard to get awake.  Man's own personal comfort is not necessarily evil.  Christians get that feeling of comfort when they are in fellowship, listening to hymnals or reading the Bible.  Comfort becomes evil when you get it from the wrong stuff.

The wrong type of comfort can be like the pig feeling good in the mud.  Many people today feel comfortable in the environment of sin.  Some people would prefer to live in a sin city like Las Vegas or Chicago because it offers a lot of what sin has to offer.  Many people think that they are safe because they are comforta…

The Gospel Is About Bringing People to God, Not About Having High Statistics of Attendants

I remembered lost people tend to say that a pastor's success or failure depends on how much that pastor has so many followers.  They tell me that any pastor who is not having a huge number of followers is unpopular, cursed of God and that to be a pastor who sticks by the Bible with a conviction of Jesus is the only Way to the Father, a pastor who preaches against the popular evils will always be that "poor Protestant pastor who needs your tithes and offerings."  This of course may come from the mouths of people who are following the Pope or any religious leader so blindly, giving their contributions without second thought while hypocritically and falsely accusing the man of God of monetizing his pulpit.  What they do not realize is that the pastor may be a failure in the worldly sense but he is successful in the godly sense.

When one is called to be a prophet in the Old Testament - it was a job that nobody wanted to take.  As I read through the Old Testament, I really r…

Did Peter Divorce His Wife To Become the First Pope?

Whenever I mention that Peter could not be the first Pope because he was married, I do get answers that maybe Peter's wife already died or that he divorced her.  What is funny is that whenever I read a copy of the Roman Catholic catechism, it says divorce is considered a sin yet in another page, it says that although Peter had a wife, he left her.  They misquote Matthew 19:27 which says that the disciples left everything to follow Him.  Considering that Roman Catholics love to pick one verse and leave out the rest then re-interpret them, I would like to address the side who believed Peter had divorced his wife to become the first Pope.

The idea Peter divorced his wife would be a complete contradiction.  In Matthew 19:4-8, we read that Jesus was strictly against divorce.  When Peter said we left everything, it doesn't mean he divorced his wife and left any of their children if they had any.  In 1 Corinthians 9:5, we read that Peter actually took his wife along with him in missi…

You Are Your Own Worst Enemy, Sinner!

"The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation."~ Charles Spurgeon

"For not knowing about God's righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God." Romans 10:3

While Satan indeed is to blamed also for why the world is a mess but the one responsible for sin entering into the world was Adam himself.  Romans 5:12-14 declare that Adam's sin caused sin to enter into the world.  Satan tempted Eve but the blame fell on Adam who was responsible for all creation including his wife.  While demons do entice people to sin but the worst enemy of the person is not the demon but themselves.  It is because they embrace the demons and sinfulness in their own freedom of choice between good and evil.  When Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they did it with their own wrong choices.

The self-righteous spirit also misleads people away from salvation.  You have…

Theology Separated From Christ is Deadly

The Five Solas of the Reformation were Sola Scriptura, Sola Gracia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus and Soli Deo Gloria.  A Christian's theology must always be a Christ-centered one.  How I learned about the Lord Jesus Christ was through the power of the Holy Scriptures and not through anything else.  In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus preached from Scriptures.  In the Book of Acts, Peter preached from Scripture.  Paul preached from Scripture.  All the apostles preached from Scripture.  These were all Christ-centered theology.  You will find them saying, "It is written." in references to Scriptures or quoting from the authors of the Old Testament to show what is fulfilled in the New Testament are all part of Scripture.
When theology is deviated from Christ, it deviates itself from the truth of the Word of God in the place of the anti-Scriptural traditions of men.  Many people claim to preach a Christ-centered theology but it is centered on something or somebody else.  The so…

Allow Same Sex Marriage and Other Sexual Perversions Will Get Legalized as Well

It has been some time since same sex marriage had been legalized and it is a sad day as United States of America might as well be called the United States of Sodom and Gomorrah.  I could imagine how homosexuals may have partied all they wanted with all their disgusting activities.  The more I think of their sexual activities, the more I really vomit at them by the grace of God (Titus 2:11-14, Ephesians 2:8-10).  No Christian can ever approve of such stupidity.  When it is sin, it leads to disgrace and grace has nothing to do with sin.

So homosexual marriages are approved now it is time to really get all the other sins of Sodom legalized, right?  I am afraid that the answer is really yes because even if Christians will protest against it, most people choose to follow Satan.  While it may look stupid to protest against same sex marriage and the like but at least, it will deliver a message to people that judgment day is coming.  Jeremiah may have not been able to prevent the judgment o…

The Idea Homosexuality Harms No One is a Huge Lie From the Pits of Hell!

Homosexuals have their tendency to say that if I am not affected by what they do personally then I should just shut up and leave them alone.  They say that they are just a "normal loving couple" and that their activities are "perfectly safe".  They may be able to deceive the public with false statistics but God cannot be fooled.  I can be fooled, I can fall into doubt but my God is greater than all my weaknesses.  The picture above this paragraph shows some facts from Christian Apologetics Research Ministries on some documented research on how homosexuality harms those who practice it.
A lot of painful facts really need to be addressed when it comes to homosexual activities.  Every sin has its consequence that is why God hates sin.  God hates sin because of the harm it brings.  God is not trying to be a cosmic killjoy when He forbids homosexuality because He knows the consequences it will bring to those who practice it.  Instead, He is doing so in order to protect…

The Gospel's Clarity Does Not Change Based on One's Spiritual Eyesight

With this quote by John Calvin that says that the brightness of the sun is not diminished by the blind, the same goes when it comes to the blindness of unbelievers when it comes to the Gospel.  2 Corinthians 4:4 says that Satan has blinded the minds of unbelievers to prevent them from seeing the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.  When that happens, Satan also sets the blind to lead the blind hoping to take them to Hell.  It takes a realization of one's own spiritual blindless to be freed from it.

Many people say, "I can see." and yes, they can physically see but their spiritual eyes as mentioned in John 9:41.  The guilt of so many people remain because they claim that they know spiritual truth but in reality they are blind to it.  Even when the Gospel message is clear in its meaning, they are still missing the point because Satan puts stumblingblocks.  When they are not saved but think that they are working for God and not Satan, it's Satan's deception at work.  The…

Sorry Pope Francis but Atheists Aren't Going to Heaven by Their Good Works!

With Pope Francis really spewing more unbiblical nonsense, I have no reason to believe he is a man of God with all the attention he gets.  The fact that he even declares all who reject Christ to be qualified for Heaven should sound the alarm that he is not a man of God nor does he really know the Scriptures.  Most Roman Catholics are so ignorant about the full context of the Bible to the point they just buy whatever doctrinal garbage is thrown at them.  After all, is not the Papacy based on a severe misapplication of Matthew 16:16-18 and praying to Mary because one refuses to understand John 2:1-12 where it is obvious Mary did not intercede between people and the Lord Jesus Christ?

I always imagined how the Popes claim to be the Vicar of Christ on Earth but their teachings are far from Christ.  Any good man of God would have lovingly rebuked the person of their sinfulness and tell them about salvation.  But the Pope spews out the popular doctrine that as long as you are a good person…

Reminder: Jesus Is NOT an Add on to One's Way of Life

The "gospel" of "Easy Christianity" has perverted the message that Jesus is just an add on, that it is possible to be saved and remain barren and that teaching true salvation results to good works is works salvation.  It is safe to assume that such people hate Biblical repentance that some of the even teach that one does not need to repent to be saved, that all one needs is to simply believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

I do not deny that salvation has never been earned nor maintained by one's good works.  Instead, salvation has always been the work of God.  But the problem is when one teaches that one's salvation by grace through faith is a license to sin.  I really refuse to believe even for a minute that God's grace is a license to sin nor that a Christian can remain indifferent about good works and growing up.  The "Easy Christianity" may quote Scripture but do they really know the Scripture?  Then again, I believe those "Christians&qu…

Forget About The "I Love Me" Theology

While self-depreciation can become unhealthy at huge amounts but the problem is when man becomes obsessed with one's self.  The problem of this self-esteem movement is that the more you think nothing is wrong with you, the more praise yourself and love yourself, the more you are to receive positive reinforcement from the Devil.  What happens is that the more a person is obsessed with himself, the more the person says, "I do not need Jesus.  I am fine the way I am."
This creates the problem of being self-serving.  When it comes to the Christian life, you cannot serve two masters.  The problem of "loving one's self" is nothing more than me, myself and I rather than God loves me and I love Him.  This means doing good works of righteousness for one's own publicity rather than for the glory of God.  The more I think of myself, the more I am frightened to see that I am nothing more than a Hell-deserving sinner.  When I see myself doing good works because I l…

Unsaved People Refuse to Accept Their Helplessness as Sinners Because of Pride

The more I analyze the four types of converts in the parable of the sower, the more it is evident to why the first three are false converts.  Just because the person hears of the Word of God does not automatically mean they are saved.  People today just love to fight the Biblical truth that Christians so lovingly tell them that they are helpless in their sin.  Just because something is well-accepted does not make it automatically acceptable to God.  Sure the world can accept the works of charity from Christian organizations while hating the core teachings of Christianity.  Many wanted to follow Jesus because of His miracles but they hate His teachings.  His teachings were not only hard against the obvious sins but also against the sin of pride.  By nature, fallen humans have a huge degree of pride that must be broken.

The idea of works salvation is generally acceptable because it appeals to the pride of life.  If a man does not fall because of the lust of the flesh and the lust of th…

Congratulations to Manny Pacquiao For Speaking the Truth About Homosexuality

The world has gone wicked and it is really time Manny Pacquiao should consider quitting politics.  The reason is that these days in order to win a high seat in politics means one must consider going against God's principles and appease a sinful majority.  His conversion from Roman Catholicism to become a born again Christian became a huge blow to Rome.  His current statement is a huge blow to the queers and sodomites.

Read the Bible and notice how a sinful majority put sinful men in power like Abimelech who becomes a king of Shechem and Omri who started a very wicked dynasty.  When he asserted that homosexuality was wrong - he has had more courage to stand up for what is right than most people in power today who decide to play Pontius Pilate with the crowd.  Pilate could have set Jesus free but instead gave in to their demands.  But this man, Pacquiao, asserted that homosexuality will always be wrong.  There is no way to be accepted by both the wicked world and a holy God at the…

George Whitefield Against Watered Down Preaching

"They (preachers of the day) strengthen the hand of the wicked by promising them eternal life. They comfort people, before the Holy Spirit convicts them.  They sow, before they plow and are busy in raising a fabric before laying The Foundation.....These foolish builders strengthen man's carnal security by their soft, selfish, cowardly discourses.  They have not the courage or honesty to thrust the Nail of Terror into the sleeping souls of unregenerated professing Christians.  They pass over the Law, and casually mention the Ruin and Depravity of Man.  They utter not the Sovereignty of God and that Salvation is of The Lord. It be no small wonder, Our Lord will proclaim to most Church goers, 'Depart from me.  I never knew you.' (Matthew 7:23)."

~ George Whitefield 1714-1770

I really can only say this that many churches today suffer from watered down preaching.  When I quote from historic Christianity, they can say preachers like Whitefield teach "works salva…

Good News Christian, Christ Helps You Fight Against Your Old Addictions!

There is a difference between a person who is enslaved by sin and who is struggling with sin.  Paul struggled with sin, he was not enslaved to it as written in Romans 7:13-25 which is so used by Antinomians to justify their heresy.  No, Paul was not indulging in sin but he was struggling with it.

The power against sin is not in one's self but it is still the grace of God given to the new convert.  Salvation from sin has never been about one's own effort but instead; it is the grace of God that changes the life of the believer.  Ephesians 2:8-10, Romans 3:31 and Titus 2:11-14 teach that God's grace equips the believer unto good works.  Hebrews 9:14 says the blood of Jesus redeems people from their dead works to serve the true and the living God.  Where there is God's grace there is power against sin.  That is the comfort that every newborn believer can take as they grow in grace.  The fact that Christians struggle against sin is a healthy sign.  It is when a professing…

Sorry Easy Believists, Repentance Is Really Necessary for Salvation!

I am afraid today's churches are just all love and no repentance.  The idea of a repentless salvation or to equate repentance of sin to works salvation is just stupid.  The Greek word for salvation is "metanoneia" or a change of mind which results to a change in purpose.  When a person repents of their sins, it means they change their mind about sin, how offensive it is to God and how it really makes them deserve nothing but Hellfire for that sin.  Anybody who removes repentance as a necessity for salvation has been leading people to a false conversion.  Listen to this video to understand more about repentance.

Abortion is One of Today's Greatest Massacres Ever

Sure one can go ahead and condemn the ungodly acts of the Pharaoh at the beginning of the Book of Exodus for all the Hebrew baby boys he killed or Herod the Great for ordering the death of Hebrew male children two years and below just so he could stay in power.  Problem is, do we even bother to pause for awhile to think about abortion is just as wrong as the acts carried out to drown the Hebrew baby boys or murdering the infants?  Most people really have a twisted mind to the point that they think if a murder is not done in the name of pagan religion then it is not murder.  Sorry, abortion is still an act of infanticide.

Certainly, one can go ahead and condemn pagan religion as barbaric and cruel for child sacrifice but have we ever thought that abortion is just as ungodly?  Whoever thinks that the fetus is just a glob and tissue better think again.  They better take a look at the aborted fetuses and realize those were once alive and they were aborted.  If the fetus was just a glob t…

Remember to Please God, Not Man

John 15:18-19, James 4:4 and 1 John 2:15 warn about trying to please the world.  The Lord Jesus Christ already warned that either you are of the world or you are of God - there is no sensible compromise.  I remembered the stupidity of being told as a child that if I just keep doing what is right, I will not get into trouble.  But the more I read the Bible, the more I am horrified to see the ministers of God getting punished for doing right.  They were not just victims of close-minded people but they were also victims of doing right because the world as of right now still belongs to Satan's world system.  In short, the Christian lesson has always been, "Do right even if you get into trouble."

The focus of doing right in the the Christian life is Soli Deo Gloria which means "Glory to God Alone".  The motive behind the work if it seeks that God be glorified and only He alone, that is a real good work otherwise it is not a good work.  Men of God do what is right e…

Sadly, This Scenario is True For Many Churches Today

It does get annoying to think how everything matters but preaching the Gospel.   It is a great insult of the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15 that the Apostles were commissioned to preach the Gospel.  This scenario is true for anybody who is serious about preaching the Gospel while being in a church that is not serious about it.  Such a church should be given a question mark whether or not they are really and truly saved.  As Charles H. Spurgeon warns that if you have no desire for souls to be saved, maybe you are not saved to start with.

Entertainment Driven Churches Are Not Born Again Christian Organizations

Some Roman Catholic apologists have already misrepresented the born again Christian movement to have desecrated Sunday fellowship.  If any institution claims to be a born again Christian movement but has turned the Sunday fellowship of believers into an entertainment driven church - then such a church it is not of Christ.  It may be a church but it not part of the Church, the body of Christ but it is an apostate church that is only destined to be destroyed.

The lukewarm message I have talked about has been how sin, repentance and salvation have been toned down.  False conversions are just as real as eternal security.  Anybody can say they are saved but not all those who say they are saved are truly are saved.   When I started to tell people that it is impossible to be saved and living like the Devil, they got mad and decided to throw every dirt and mud they could to discredit the Gospel truth.  The truth of salvation does not only stop with salvation is by faith alone in Jesus Christ…

Sorry Roman Catholics, It's Wrong to Call the Pope as Holy Father

John 17:11 from the Good News Translation used by many Roman Catholics say, "And now I Am coming to You; I Am no longer in the world, but they are in the world.  Holy Father!  Keep them safe by the power of Your Name, the Name You gave Me, so that they may be one just as you and I are one."

It is really sad for me to see how many Roman Catholics I have known personally to question the Bible, saying that they need more than the Bible but they suddenly call the Pope as "Holy Father" which their reasons can be found in Catholic Answers:
Only God is holy by his very essence; however, by a person, place, or thing’s association with God, it too can be called holy. To be called holy is to express the idea of consecration, that someone or something belongs to God. That is why the Bible can call many persons, places, and things holy.  In Genesis 28:16, the place God appears is "holy." In Exodus 19:6, God tells the Israelites through Moses, "and you shall be …

Richard Dawkins' Inconsistency About Evil

If there is no good or evil then why does he condemn faith or what false Christians have done against humanity as evil such as the Inquisition and the Crusades?  If everything was just pitiless indifference then why should faith be considered evil?  Did not some atheists say, "Sin is just a fantasy word, people were just doing what they can to survive."  Are acts like murder, robbery, homosexuality, adultery, fornication and all justifiable all in the name of trying to survive?  Not a chance because when it comes to sin, God is consistent with what sin is as He is holy, holy and holy.  
Atheists tend to appeal to morals only when they are hurt or for their own convenience.  There is the tendency to say, "There are no morals.  I do what I do."  But observe how they end up becoming whiny when something bad happens to them like if a loved one got murdered, they got hurt, their property got hit then they play the victim  If there is no evil and it is all done in the n…

Without Love, Great Preaching is Nothing

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 says,"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing."

It is possible to have a huge knowledge of theology as if one's head was a library of theology books, to preach against sin, to really be serious about sin, to hate sin and to be a "walking Bible" but it is also possible to really have another motive other than loving people. It is not possible to love someone and never tell them the truth but it is possible to tell the truth without loving the person. It is like you can never love your child without chastising the child but it is possi…
