Examin Sunday 17 Jul 2016

Christians are called to speak the truth in love. This means we share the fullness of the truth of the Gospel message with all. This sharing does not entail hectoring or berating; and it does not mean hating, excluding, or belittling those who having heard will not believe. There is no love in that; and such unloving behaviour can only make it harder for them to accept the Gospel at some later time. But this love can never mean altering or watering down the faith in any way, for what is shared must be the fullness of the truth. For just as love calls us to share the Gospel, it calls us to share the full truth of it. To do otherwise is not love for it denies the one who hears the full truth.
