What is the real issue that Christians need to concern themselves with? This question arose from a conversation I had last week. A close friend and I were discussing the changes in morality that we’ve seen in our life time. As we talked, it dawned on me that, though I’m saddened by the moral decline in America, this is not the real issue.
Jesus didn’t charge us with fixing the sin in others, and he warned us not to judge others (See Matthew 7:1-5). However, he did charge us with two things. The first is to love one another, and the second is to make others disciples. Our job is to love our fellow humans, and bring them to him. He’ll take care of fixing the sin.
Sin and evil are all around us, and this has been true since the fall of Adam and Eve. Jesus has the only cure for sin. So the real issue is do you know Jesus? As Christians, loving sinners and bringing them to Jesus is the issue that should occupy our time.
