I wrote this blog on my Facebook Page on September 28, 2010 at 10:22 AM. I spoke about this during Episode 1: Pastor Nick Honerkamp, and the most fascinating thing was that God tested my thoughts on this soon after I published. Shockingly it has been a little less than 6 years ago, and I remember it like it was yesterday. Two Jehovah's Witness women knocked on my door within 10 minutes of my posting this to The Warrior's Cry Facebook page.
Love is the greatest weapon of all simply because who can criticize when you have love? Who can ridicule you when you have an open heart that shows the love of Christ?
Didn't Christ hang out with the prostitute? Did he criticize their life choices or nag them into change? No, He loved them, showed them the love of God, fed them, clothed them, then he told them to go and sin no more.
The Church seems fascinated by formulas so here is a formula. God will never give us an opportunity to change someone unless we first love them. First comes love, then comes repentance, without love the turning from sin is simply hollow.
