Voices: A warning from a friend: Return to your first love

Voices: A warning from a friend: Return to your first love

by Joseph R. Fields on January 14, 2021

As a guardian and a friend of the faith, I am concerned to the point of suffering, discomfort, and struggle with the direction a substantial number of our white evangelical family appears to be directed.

As a friend, I must tell you the danger that lies ahead if there is no change in direction.

My compassion for you

I express these thoughts with great care and concern for the body of Christ, including a large caucus of the white evangelical church. I write as a brother and from a biblical perspective, not as someone who wants to be partisan nor political.

I have had and still possess a deep reservoir of love for all of God’s creation. There can be no significant hurt without immense love first. It is my prayer that the Holy Spirit will be the superintendent between us. I am praying he will guard our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus to decipher what is good and mature for his glory.

The Bible tells us: “Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful” (Proverbs 27:6).
