A United Front: An Unsent Letter

We all make mistakes, no? Then how can you look at someone so harshly and ridicule them for apologizing for their mistakes? Jesus said to take the plank out of your own eye before pointing out the speck in someone else's eye (Luke 6:41-42). Isn't your very condemnation of someone's apology the plank in your eye? You say that this person has done their fair share of judging in their lifetime and that they should leave the judging to God...but in saying that, aren't you judging them? You claim  that you are praying that they "move forward and out of this," but are you actually praying for them? Why do you have so much ammunition against this person? Why have you researched so much that you know all the faults of this person you aren't even a fan of? 1 Thessalonians 5 says to encourage and build each other up, but everything I have heard from you thus far has been tearing down not building up. Love is patient, love is kind, love does not envy. Love is not proud or rude. Love is not self-seeking and is not easily angered. Love keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13.) Rather than holding on to our anger and hate, we as Christians should be loving towards one another. We should love one another as Christ loved us (John 13:34). As the old song says, "And they'll know we are Christians by our love." Satan will have a harder time attacking when there is a united front.
