Hello and greetings to you
I am a new member. I like studying about the Bible, I could not help but to read your story, yes there are many problems with Christians. We just need a little help. I found something interesting about regarding about witnessing may be this can help people in the forumhe about what people are doing, I have to same problem when I put a subject or a study to exchange ideas. Jesus said to his father in Heaven forgive for they know not what they do. But you are right. They will not accept correction sometimes when God send a message. I too try not to judge, but I always do an open mind but I use my heart and all my thinking. Sometimes we need reminding of where came from. It is set that the problems of the world will be burned by the stands of time. We need the fruit of the spirit in our live. I hope I can read about your views about your journey's.
He shows that a mans is defiled only by what comes out of his mouth
10 And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
12 Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
15 Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

There are 175 single word false-witnesses in the Bible. There are 74 in the Old Testament and 93 in the New Testament. We're God talks about witnessing and false-witnessing. If you have a Strong, s Concordance you can find key words and write them down and you can get your own answers,
False witness---Giving a wrong testimony. Something to be false. It proceeds from an emotion or the purpose to injure one another, to take away their character, to do injustice. It’s our human heart. It is contrary to the ninth commandment.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
We should examine our self, time to time we should try to help others. Exchange ideas.
1 Cor. 11:27-34 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be
condemned with the world.
33 Wherefore, my brethren, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.
34 And if any man hunger, let him eat at home; that ye come not together unto condemnation. And the rest will I set in order when I come.
