Does your relationship with Jesus impact others? Do you know when to bridle your tongue for the sake of edifying other believers? Does your relationship manifest itself in a religion of service that helps to provide for widows and orphans so that they will come to know Christ? Does your love for Jesus motivate you to stay away from moral impurity? If the answer to any of these questions is no, strive to avoid the sins of an unbridled tongue and the neglect of the needy.
Pluralism is the cover that secular humanism has used to persuade Christians to give up their influence in society. Today it is politically incorrect to believe an “intolerant religion” that holds up ethical absolutes. Be willing to stand up and be called pejorative names in order to proclaim God’s standards in an age of pluralism.
