If anyone doesn’t love the Lord, let him be condemned! May our Lord come!
Si alguno no ama al Señor, que sea anatema. ¡Maranata!
Paul wrote this towards the end of his first letter to the Corinthians. They are very strong words, but needed to be said. there are times we need to hold some of our words back, but other times they need to be strong and with authority. Yes, those that do not love Jesus, they are cursed. We do not need to curse them, because they are cursing themselves. When someone says a stupid joke about Jesus, or takes his name in vain, do we laugh or let it go? We shouldn’t! Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Those people who do such things need to hear the truth. Don’t let our Lord be attacked! That is our responsibility.
9But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. 10A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject; 11Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
9 Pero evita controversias necias, genealogías, contiendas y discusiones acerca de la ley, porque son sin provecho y sin valor. 10 Al hombre que cause divisiones, después de la primera y segunda amonestación, deséchalo, 11 sabiendo que el tal es perverso y peca, habiéndose condenado a sí mismo.
There are many who want to “debate” or “argue” the Bible. There is a time to give explanations, but in many cases, it is wiser to just walk away. Many of these people who are this way know the truth, but have denied it. Their primary objective is to trap you into a “word game”. Their father is Satan and they have walked away from Jesus. It is much better to ignore their debate and let God fight that battle in their minds and hearts. Let God’s Spirit be the guide.
