  • Christianity and accepting lies

    Does anyone else find that they are perhaps less accepting of society's "little lies" than they were before they became Christian, or became a practicing Christian?

    Many of the things around us, especially in small towns rely on turning a blind eye to lies, sins, power plays, and so on and sometimes letting the innocent suffer because the events "aren't their business". I find I can't do this. It may not be my business, but if I have the proof that someone has lied or is harming another for their own benefit, I'll bring it forward. However I find many other people are really reluctant to speak up, even when they know what's going on.

    The last case was a false accusation made to police, so I'm not talking small things here, but of twenty witnesses who knew the truth and could prove it I was the only one that would speak up to get charges dropped. Why do people just stand back and allow this?

    Hi Sister, in your case, I'm certain that having the mind of Christ, as well the indwelling and leading of the Holy Spirit, had a lot to do with your choosing to act when 20 others would not.

    Keep up the good work in Him :)

    Yours in Christ,
    David

      • Matthew 5:10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
      • 1 Peter 3:14-16 But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you will be blessed. Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.


      God bless,
