Scripture Shorts - Fraternal Correction

Admonishing the Sinner is not “Judging” is an Act of Mercy.

You shall not hate your brother in your heart: You shall in any case rebuke your neighbor, and not suffer sin upon him.” (Lev 19:17)

My brethren, if any one among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.” (James 5:19-20)

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any sin, you who are spiritual should recall him in a spirit of gentleness. Look to yourself, lest you too be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Gal 6:1-2)

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teach and admonish one another in all wisdom.” (Col 3:16)

And we exhort you, brethren, admonish the unruly, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.” (1 Thess 5:14)
