So if you had a brother and he was cheating on his wife of 8 years and 4 children, would you just love him or would you pull him aside (judging him) and tell him, what he is doing is wrong and that it must stop?

not so, if someone is openly sinning in your congregation we are called to exhort and lead them to repentance.

Christianity is a path to being Christ like, not to say sin is fine as long as you say Jesus , Jesus...

godspeed,

And that there is why Jesus will say to many... be gone from me... i never knew you... ye that worketh iniquity...

Where is the accountability, the pursuit of holiness, righteousness...

That attitude does nothing but Crucify the Lord daily.

How can you compare someone cheating on someone with a loving, faithful couple?
