June 8, 2023

As Christ-followers, we should abstain from the appearance of sinful behavior and refrain from involvement in celebrating detestable things. It is not loving for us to participate in something we know is abhorrent to God, and it’s a slap in the face of Jesus, who died to cleanse us from such impurity. The minds of some have been overtaken by the evil one with hopes of turning as many away from Jesus as possible. It is not loving to stand by and watch as they plummet further and further into darkness. The best thing we can do is to show them the love of Jesus and try to convince them to turn away from evil and seek a better life filled with the love of the true Jesus, not some made-up image of a god that accepts their sinfulness. We must love them enough to want to see them deny such sin and accept Jesus as their Savior. The most loving thing we can do is to help snatch them from the fire and show them the narrow pathway to a better life. 

To the pure, all things are pure, but to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work. Titus 1:15-16
