How do we see people? We all grow up with certain perspectives on the appearance and behavior of others. There is so much being said about being or not being “politically correct”. What about being biblically correct? What if the scriptures shaped the ways we see each other, welcome each other and love each other? Paul invites believers in the first century and the twenty first century to welcome each other in spite of our differences. The church can never condone sin. But some of our judgment is not about sin but about our own cultural preferences and biases. May the Holy Spirit of God reveal to each of us and all of us the ways that we have excluded others among us based on non-biblical standards so that we may repent. Welcome to worship with Tallowood!
