Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

Romans 14:4

Can I be honest? It’s not easy being a Christian sometimes. The things I want to do, I cannot and the things I must do, I resist. My body and my soul fight with each other.

For that reason, it is so confounding to me when Christians pick fights with one another over trivial matters and make life even harder. The goal of the church (ἐκκλησία [ekklasia]: gathering) is to be as one; our unity in Christ is our defining feature. This is freeing! Rather than seeing the faults in other believers, we seek out those who are truly lost, and share the good news.
