When it comes to Christians talking to each other about serious issues, there is a great deal of confusion about what is right and appropriate. The question below and its subsequent answer seeks to reveal the truth about the Christian’s responsibility to say what is true.
Should I just “mind my own business”?
We could ignore what is going on in our culture and say nothing, but that would not be Biblical. Christians are called to be truth tellers- even when what we say may be unpopular. We should speak with gentleness because we love the Lord, love our neighbors, and love children. Psalm 40:9-11 says,
“I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation; Behold, I will not restrain my lips, O LORD, You know. I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation.”
