In this week’s podcast, we are finishing up the series about critiquing others in their sin. Leading up to this week, Pastor Isaac has addressed who we should address in their sin as well as how we should go about it. Now, we hear from a panel of individuals answering some questions that have come up throughout the series. The panel includes Jerry Ireland, Donna Washburn, and Jacob Shaffer.
This week Pastor Isaac continues our series on the topic of critiquing others in their sin. In the first week, we found that all critique must be done from a humble heart and not out of prideful condescension. In week two, we saw that, when talking with a non-Christian, it is better to point to Christ than to their specific sins. Now this week, Pastor Isaac argues, from Scripture, that once they have turned to Christ, it is our obligation to persist for each-other’s holiness out of a love for one another.
This week Pastor Isaac starts a new sermon series on the topic of critiquing others in their sin. With this comes many questions. Is it our right to call others out in the way they are living? If so, what is the most appropriate way to do it? Should we only call out Christians and not say anything to non-believers? These will all be addressed in this series through the consideration of what Scripture says on the topic. In this first week, Pastor Isaac lays a foundation by asserting that, in any critique we may have of others, we should always do it out of humility knowing that we, in ourselves, are no better.
