How far should a Christian go when it comes to helping a person that wants to come to our faith? I hear a lot of Christian musicians speaking of them being a light in dark places. Some of these Christian artist go into clubs and really bad neighborhoods. Still how deep into the darkness can one go and be safe? I know Matthew 18:12 says How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and forth into the mountains, and seeking that which is gone astray? Not questioning the protection of God He has our backs definitely.
It’s important to set some boundaries we all get weak our intentions are always good in the beginning but what happens in the middle and the end. Many are questioning Kirk Franklin’s collaboration with Kanye West. I like to compare situations like these to wearing all white clothes no matter how much you try to keep it clean a spot gets on it somehow. One can only stay so clean against something dirty. How much should we risk our own soul to help someone that’s coming to our faith? As far as I am concerned and I am no expert by far let’s use the analogy of saving a person from falling off of a cliff both people have to do their part or they will both go over the cliff. The same applies to a person who wants to come into our faith we are to welcome them, inspire them and help as much as we can. The key words are” help as much as we can”. No one is above backsliding that’s why it’s important for us to be careful. One has to have the want to to go with the help, things don’t work with help alone in order to have a garden one must plant the seeds for it to grow.
