Our responsibility

But if you warn a wicked person to turn from his way and he doesn't turn from it, he will die for his iniquity, but you will have saved your life. Ezekiel 33:9

God says just a few verses later: I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked person should turn from his way and live. Repent, repent of our evil ways !

Its our job to warn. To speak up. Reprove the Ruthless.

That American Digest "Grace in the Blue Ridge" article (the one that ended with Vanderleun's seeing a family praying in a restaurant) speaks volumes about how we warn the world. It's not our great words or our scolding finger, but our small faith that convicts. The Romans laughed at the Christians in the coliseum, yet we remain but where is Nero?
