Wesley's Notes for Jude 1:22


1:22 Meantime watch over others, as well as yourselves, and give them such help as their various needs require. For instance, Some, that are wavering in judgment, staggered by others' or by their own evil reasoning, endeavour more deeply to convince of the whole truth as it is in Jesus. Some snatch, with a swift and strong hand, out of the fire of sin and temptation. On others show compassion in a milder and gentler way; though still with a jealous fear, lest yourselves be infected with the disease you endeavour to cure.See, therefore, that while you love the sinners, ye retain the utmost abhorrence of their sins, and of any the least degree of, or approach to, them.

    Jude is a great book especially I love the last verse.

    I listen to all of your comment and what I had read is very interesting. There is some truth to all of your saying but I understand we are to quick to judge. If someone make an mistake or being mislead or have lack of knowledge, do I call that person a follower of Satan? When I listen to people speak their belief and what they heard, It take me back to the time I was in elementary school. Then teacher would whisper something in one person ear and the the student would whisper the same message to each other until it reach the last student. When the last student repeat what he had heard it, the message had change and sound completely different from the original message. All I am saying we have to stop putting our trust in what people are saying, ask God is there any truth to what we had heard and to help us understand what was put before us. If we put our trust in God the father and his son Jesus Christ we should never go wrong. To be honest with you, to ease the pain of my long suffering, I give in to temptation and sin, but I always find myself going back and doing the right thing when thing get a little out of hand, and I thank God and his son that I am forgiven.

    Im McCall, You just described most "church." Even the ones that have one name denomination typically do not teach the true doctrine of God's Word. Even those that post on this website, and God's word is right in front of them. May the Lord show his mercy.
  • I m, McCall
    Anyone that attends more than one religion mixture of church having different denominations if it's not the word of the son of God himself then we'll they are totally confused they need to ask the Lord for his guidance to the right path,
  • Israel Mitchell McCAll
