Just because I disagree with you does not mean that I hate you. If you are breaking God's law, and you think that it is okay to do the things that go against the Bible, then I must disagree with you. God has written His law on everyone’s heart. You know it is wrong to lie, steal, have sex outside of marriage, and to hate other people, but you do it anyway and create ways to justify yourself. You say, "Oh, it's okay to murder a baby because it is inconvenient for me! I'll get fat for 9 months, and then have to take care of a child. I'm too busy doing the things I want to do, so I demand the right to murder another human being!"
It is not hate that causes me to obey God’s law or to tell others about God’s law. It is the truth, and God has give us His truth, and I must share it. The law is not random, it is based on God's character. God is not a liar, a thief, or a murderer. The Ten Commandments are not random. They are based on who God is. God has appointed a day in which he will judge us: “It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,” (Heb 9:27).
Thankfully, God is rich in mercy and He sent His only son. Jesus was born of a virgin, never broke any of God’s laws, and He lived a perfect life. Jesus healed people and raised people from the dead. When Jesus was crucified on the cross, He suffered and died. Not for anything He did, but for the things that you and I do. And three days later He rose from the grave. We must repent and trust in Christ, and then we will be born again. We will be reconciled to God and granted eternal life; not because we are better than anyone else, but because Jesus loved us so much that He died on the cross for us.
When I say that what you are doing is wrong, its because I care for you. God has called me to be an ambassador for Him. In God's word, the Bible, it says that we are not to call evil good and good evil. That is why I must tell you about how God can forgive your sin. I humbly ask that you tolerate what God called me to do.
I did not earn God's gift of grace, nor did I deserve Jesus dying on the cross for me. However, I want you to have this very same gift for yourself! I want you to end up in heaven. I want you to know: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God,” (John 3:16-18).
I am not condemning you. But if I love you, I have to tell you that the things you love are wrong and must be punished by God. Either you will suffer for eternity, or your sins will be erased by the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. He paid it all. I am warning you so that you may believe in the name of the only Son of God in order that you might not be condemned.
I do not go out and share the Gospel with you because I am self righteous. I tell you as one beggar trying to tell another beggar where to find bread. Jesus is the bread of life.
