In Reference to: The Holy Spirit Gives Us the Empowerment to Live as Christians
Re: Frank L. Hoffman's Comment: "People used to tell us not to offend others (with the truth), or to couch the truth so as not to trouble people's consciences. Well, we found out that such advice isn't Godly."
Re: Frank's comment: "We should never be afraid to speak and present the whole truth. The truth only offends when it pricks the heart of an unrepentant and unteachable spirit. But for the most part, the truth heals the soul of all who have the love of God in them.
Beautifully and soundly said. I needed to read this.
I'm so afraid of people and what they think of me. The Word says that the
fear of man is a snare. With social phobia, that indeed
is the case.
Lately, I've backed off a bit about sharing my compassion for animals. I've been told, "You read too much", and "your level of knowledge is scary." But those same people don't want to hear about slavery in our chocolate.
Thank you for the encouragement to speak up.
