John 3:19-20 ” This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.”

All during His Ministry, Jesus pointed out and exposed the truth about sin. He never minced words or sugar-coated His hatred for sin and it’s ramifications on the human race. Over and over again Jesus would address the truth and consequences of sinful behavior…but as Psalm 52:3 points out, “You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth.”…we would rather remain in spiritual darkness with our dirty little secrets. So the idea today that Jesus has somehow changed His focus to overlooking sin and never correcting His people is completely false. Correction is a good thing, for in Job 5:17 it says, “Blessed is the man who God corrects; so don’t despise the discipline of the Almighty.” We are also told to correct fellow Believers, as Jesus said in Luke 17:3, “If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.” Finally, if angels weren’t spared when they sinned, but sent to hell (II Peter 2:4), how do we think our sins will be glossed over and excused now? Jesus hasn’t changed, and neither has the truth about sin.
