“20 Again, When a righteous man does turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at your hand.
21 Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul.” Ezekiel 3:20-21
There are a lot of folks who have turned a blind eye to the righteous who have turned from their righteousness and commit iniquity. Too many have died spiritually because no one stood up against false doctrine and allowed it to sweep away their Brothers and Sisters into a sea of iniquity. With no dumb donkey to warn them of their madness, they are following the ways of Balaam as the modern Church stands on the sidelines scared of offending them. Blood is on your hands. Repent.
Allow me to be perfectly clear, if it happens to be my family and friends who turn from their righteousness or even my family and friends who are in fact counted among the wicked because they do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour that you are afraid of offending, by all means…WARN THEM in love and if they are offended, that is between them and God. Don’t turn a blind eye to sin. Do not compromise with sin. Do not give one inch to the precepts of the devil.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common Salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the Saints.” Jude 1:3
Contend for the faith. Warn them. If it is not Jesus Christ and Him crucified as the Source and the means by which we receive from God, it is another Jesus and another gospel and it is accursed. This faith of which we have in the Cross of Christ is the only faith God will honor. There is no other way, no other truth and no other life. Don’t wait on a dumb donkey to warn the righteous of their unrighteousness.
