Walking in the opposite direction is equally instructive. We're all walking somewhere, aren't we?
"These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage" Jud 1:16
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts" 2Pe 3:3
"But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God" 2Co 4:2
"They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters" Jer 6:28
Here's a question for you. All these people that these verses are talking about, are they just regular unsaved people, or are they hypocrites, false teachers, false prophets, etc?
Since Jesus did not come to condemn, I find that He only and ever is reaching out to people in love but saves His strongest condemnation for hypocrites. Why would He kick a man when he is already down? But Jesus, does not like "bullies" very much, does He?
Thanks for posting, good food for thought.

There is no other book like the Bible in the world where you have to know the Author to understand the book. If Christianity were the religion of the Book then it would be no different than any other religion in the world. But, Christianity is Christ! It is the dynamic, personal Spirit of God functioning in man.
