Thanks Robert,Don't want to put words in his mouth, but think that perhaps RT's intent sounds different than he may have meant. Just as you pointed out here very well, there are quite a number of things to factor in and I keep bringing to mind Noah towards the end of his life and the resulting actions of his sons, two covered and one exposed.
We get so caught up in police-ing each other that we do more damage pointing out each others errors than the errors themselves.
Go tell a new convert Billy Graham is false and see what you do to their faith if they came to Christ in that crusade.
Hi Bro. Mike,

Can still recall wondering why some of the more seasoned saints were not as up in arms over certain aspects of things that I would find so grievous or compromising and largely found it to be a side stepping of my own conscience. A putting on the battle array in Gods defense all the while silencing or stuffing down the areas the Lord was goading me towards. In other words, found that taking the plank out of my own eye was a bit more complicated than I had imagined.
