Do Not Condemn (Judges 15:1-35)
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..

Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said: ‘Should a wise man answer with empty knowledge, and fill himself with the east wind? Should he reason with unprofitable talk, or by speeches with which he can do no good? Yes, you cast off fear, and restrain prayer before God. For your iniquity teaches your mouth, and you choose the tongue of the crafty. Your own mouth condemns you, and not I; Yes, your own lips testify against you (vs1-6).”

We must speak the truth in love, not condemning the condemned, but preaching Christ to sinners gently. Jesus said, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world,but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (John 3:17-18). Truth is important, but so is love: don’t be satisfied with being right, unless your spirit is right also. Job’s accusers spoke truth, but they condemned the godly, misapplied scripture, and they kicked Job when he was down. Let it not be so with us! Paul said, “But, speaking the truth in love, [the church] may grow up in all things into Him who is the head - Christ (Eph 4:15).”

Sinners are wrong, and they must be born from above, but Jesus loved them. He spoke hard words, rebuking unashamedly, but He also wept and preached grace for their healing. He said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind (John 10:39).” He set forth Himself as mankind’s hope, and we must do the same - reproving and rebuking in longsuffering, patience, and gentleness, trusting God to save. Paul said, “But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife. And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who oppose themselves, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will (2 Tim 2:23-26). Let our attitude show our doctrine, speaking of the Remedy and not merely what’s wrong, but pointing people to what’s right, which is BELIEVING upon the Son of God for their salvation.

Eliphaz rightly said that man is sinful, but he didn’t proclaim the way of justification by faith only. He said, “What is man, that he could be pure? And he who is born of a woman, that he could be righteous? If God puts no trust in His saints, and the heavens are not pure in His sight, how much less man, who is abominable and filthy, who drinks iniquity like water (Job 15:14-16)!” We must be told that we are unacceptable to God, and He defines salvation, and we must be pointed to the Savior who justifies the UNGODLY. Paul said, “For if Abraham was justified [made righteous] by works [what he did for God], he has something to boast about, but not before God [never going to happen]. For what does the Scripture say? ‘Abraham believed God, and it [faith only] was accounted to him for righteousness.’ Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt [God owes me]. But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly [without anything we do for Him], his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works (Rom 4:2-6).” You don’t want a preacher who points to your sins without pointing to the Savior, and we must hear that believing is ENOUGH with nothing adding, that God imputes righteousness, so that people who believe are EQUAL to someone who’s never sinned! The gospel declares us unworthy, but God saves us right where we are, so preach Christ to the sinners and show Him to those who are wrong. They are hard-hearted, but such were some of you, Paul says, enslaved to all manner of righteousness (1 Cor 6:9-11). God saves by gentleness and truth, so let us use it.

Finally, yes, hypocrites will perish and rebukes are necessary, but love is the fruit of believing, so let us have it, as we lead others to trust Christ by our example. Boldly declare all that He says, in humility, and hold back nothing as love guides your tongue. Pastors weren’t given to beat up people, degrade them for their sins, and leave them hopeless, staring within, helpless against a wounded conscience. We wound and heal, and all things are done for the church’s edification, so build people up (Eph 4:11-15). Comfort your brethren, telling them that their exposed are forgiven! Speak, not only to be right, but to help those who are wrong.
