We have come to understand, through personal experience and this study, that not following this procedure of correction, as laid out in Scripture, is equal to not showing love. Not correcting fellow believers does them a disservice. They will happily continue in sin, which will ultimately cause their spiritual death and the loss of their souls to Satan. Is this what you would like for your friends?

The community of believers has become a minefield when it comes to the use of certain words and names. The words we use have become our label. If you say a word or name in a certain way, you are judged by some as being this or that. You are immediately categorized as either pure of pagan. Does this application of knowledge really make logical sense aside from the fact that we are not to judge one another? Can we do this?
We will, in this post, explore some of these points of contention as examples to show you that we are to be very careful when we repeat things we learn without verifying it first. We shall also look at the name of Yshua in a follow-up post.
We are entering into the latter part of the Cycle of Righteousness – YHVH’s Fall Feasts! Yom T’Ruah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot. With every Cycle of Righteousness we get the opportunity to learn more. Every Feast we celebrate is not just a repeat performance of what we did the previous year, but an opportunity to learn more about YHVH and His plan of redemption for mankind. With this opportunity comes a lot of study and sharing but it also can create some contention amongst brothers and sisters. How should we view this? Is it good to have different opinions or should we all think the same, believe the same and do the same? Does it create disunity if we differ in opinion? It shouldn’t!
