AN INFIDEL REBUKED There was an infidel blacksmith who was always carping at professors of religion, especially when he could get a Christian to talk to, or knew there was one near enough to overhear him. Some choice morsel of scandal was sure to be served up about an erring minister, or a sinful deacon, or a Sabbath School superintendent who had fallen from grace. One day he was dilating with uncommon relish on his favorite theme to a venerable elder, who stopped to have his horse shod. The old man bore it quietly for awhile, and then he said: Did you ever hear the story of the rich man and Lazarus?" "Yes, of course I have." "Remember about the dogs -- at the gate there -- how they licked Lazarus' sores?" "Yes; why?" "Well, you remind me of those dogs -- always licking the sores. All you notice in Christians is their faults." [url=http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index.php?view=article&aid=6436]Soul saving by George Kulp[/url]
As it is, Christians do have faults, sins are a different matter, and the world does gloat when Christians fall into sin.However, the word of God tells us in 2 Cor 7v6, 'Nevertheless God who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus'.God sees, and He sees when we repent.Thank God for repentance.God bless.
