2 Corinthians 5:17-21 - Loving Those Who Disagree If someone disagrees with us, how do we handle that?
Christian - vs. 17
This is addressed to those who have their lives changed by Christ, not by those who have a cultural attachment to church.
God has given you a ministry. vs. 18-19
God did the work, we just have to share the word.
If God loves them, doesn't that tell you that we need to love them?
Jesus didn't judge... and neither should we. - vs. 19b
Not imputing their tresspasses ... He came first as savior, next time He comes as judge. If He hasn't come as judge yet, we shouldn't judge either.
We represent God and His purpose. - vs. 20
God wants to be accurately known in the world.
It is not fair that Jesus had the sin of the world on Him, how do we expect things to be fair for us?
