Kresta in the Afternoon – June 4, 2021 – Hour 2

We take your calls on what it means to offer fraternal correction.


Direct to My Desk: Correcting? Complaining? Judging? 

Have you tried to lovingly correct a friend or loved one, only to be told that Jesus commanded us to “Judge not, lest ye be judged?” That passage from Matthew’s Gospel is among the most misunderstood passages in Scripture. How can we offer support and correction in a loving and constructive way? Is there a line to be drawn between correcting those who need it, and just complaining? Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter or call 877-583-7825.
