Christians: Do you feel it is your right to publicly call out a sister who is not (in your opinion) acting like you think a Christian should not act?

  • Is it wrong to call out the KKK or the Westboro Baptists?

  • So you're wanting to embarass and hurt someone who has lost thier way?
    Good idea. That's snap her out of it...or wait no. It'll just show her that someone is judging her, make her feel worse and send her further down the wrong path.

    You take someone aside and ask whats wrong, why theyve strayed and what you can do to help, not call them out in front of other people.

  • Publicly? No. I think that every Christian needs to be careful of who they "call out" whether they do it publicly or privately in person-that everybody needs to be held accountable, but people need to make sure that they aren't just as guilty as the other. Does that make sense?

  • Lets be real - you have some "sisters" on here who repeatedly tells every Christian who doesn't think exactly like they do that they are demonically possessed, tools of Satan (when they can figure out how to spell it correctly) or bound for hell. You have others who tell them they are not doing what Jesus would do.

    Exactly which of those two groups are you intending to call out here?

  • no i think it's up to them to repent and to make the changes that they need to make for themselves. if you force them too then they are not being able to practice their free will. which was given to us by heavenly father. i think if he can let us have free will that you should let this lady have her free will. an example is with my current husband who wasn't living to the standards that i wanted him to live by. all i could do was tell him what i wanted and why and the rest was up to him. i'm grateful that he loved me enough to change and come back to his church on his own accord. i made him prove it to me by him going to his own church, repenting and doing it all on his free will. besides your not one to judge and if you do then you can't not be judged yourself by others.

  • No. It is not OK.


    The Bible tells us to go to someone privately, then with a friend, then with the help of the church if we feel someone has done something wrong against us (or others). It is not appropriate to air someone's spiritual dirty laundry out in public.....unless they put it out there themselves and you're forced to say something publicly to do damage control (like the Westboro Baptist Church. There's an instance where I would publicly say something).
