While compassion and empathy must remain paramount in our hearts as Believers, and love for everyone has to be the hallmark of who we are, it should never be at the expense of our character, morality, and nobility. Nobility is nobleness of mind, character and spirit.
We live in a day and age when morality has become relative, nobility is most often only found in fictional stories, and virtue-less people consider righteous standards as religious oppression. Also, it is incredible that, people who don’t even believe in God, much less the Bible, use verses like “judge not lest you be judged” and “Jesus didn’t condemn sinners” to neutralize noble living and moral teaching. They use the Word of God against us in order to shape the culture that our children will one day inherit. What’s even more concerning is how Christian leaders are allowing these unbelievers to dictate how to interpret the Bible. What does God say about homosexuality and therefore gay marriage? What does He say about gender? What does He say about abortion? What about infidelity and how to treat parents, children, friends and even our enemies? Modern Christianity has become more about sanctioning sin and calling it unity than it is about God, His values, His kingdom. Jesus warned us that this would happen in the last days before He returns to this earth.
“And then many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:10-12
