Purposes of the Heart

There are many verses in the Bible that have been taken out of context by those wishing to overlook the sin of others in the name of "love" (which must be paired with truth to be genuinely loving). Often they wish for their own sin to be overlooked as well, but sometimes they just don't read the Bible for themselves and don't realize those verses are being misused. The unacceptable result of tolerating deliberate, unrepentant sin is that it permeates and infects the Body of Christ.  My post from last month on Layout for Today, entitled "Purposes of the Heart (Unity in the Body of Christ)," attempted to address some of these commonly abused verses in their proper context.
