If you believe in this way of thinking, when you are friends with someone who is sinning, (well aren't we all) do you make it a point to let them know what sins of theirs that you do not agree with?
Do you apply this idea to yourself as well?
And if you do tell others what you don't approve of within their lives, what purpose does this serve?
It seems to me, that it serves nothing other than your own ego. As a way to say, "Yup I did my part, I told them they are sinners and now they know. I feel good." But what about your sins? Why are you concerned about how others are sinning instead of pointing that finger at yourself?

do you make it a point to let them know what sins of theirs that you do not agree with? Make a "point"? no, but yes my gay friends are aware that I do not agree with homosexuality, friends that have abortions are aware I think it is murder. We stay clear of them topics most the time.
Do you apply this idea to yourself as well?Not sure what you mean, but when I fall I remind myself it is wrong. I hate my sins not myself.
It seems to me, that it serves nothing other than your own ego It seems to me your final words were to stoke your ego~~ be we all have opinions.

I have just noticed most of your questions have to do with religion and mostly they are very controversial, I'm not sure if you try to start a riot between people with your questions, or if you just know people like your examples.
I am not a Christian and don't ask questions to start riots; thats what a troll would do. I ask questions because I am confused as to the reasoning of a lot of the things the Christian faith dictates.
