3 John One: Well let me tell you!

Posted: October 19, 2011 in 3 John

So it would seem as though John didn’t get the “do not judge” memo. Listen to his words: “I have written something to the church, but Diotrephes, who likes to put himself first, does not acknowledge our authority. So if I come, I will bring up what he is doing, talking wicked nonsense against us. And not content with that, he refuses to welcome the brothers, and also stops those who want to and puts them out of the church.”

Moral of the story is, Jesus never said that we couldn’t call a spade by its name. Let’s just make sure that our own fingernails are clean before we call someone out for the dirt under theirs.
