Post of the Day: Neil Enloe
The other day, John Scheideman posted on the disturbing tendency on some Southern Gospel websites for individuals to dig up dirt on artists and post it publicly. In the comments, former Couriers lead singer Neil Enloe offered a great observation, which is reprinted here by permission:
Inevitably when I dwell on the sins of another I begin to feel the heat of guilt over my own transgressions. The advantage that I have over some people is that my sins haven’t become public. But there’s coming a time when nothing shall be hidden and our works will be tried by fire and we will be judged by the Righteous Judge, who has the true and holy perspective on good and evil. God help us all when we stand before him. The only hope any of us have is the covering and washing of the blood of our Savior who has made us acceptable unto God.
All the shame and reproach of our multiplied iniquities is buried with Him and while we are still flawed humans the Father only sees us through the purity of the blood of His only Son.
I would rather be found guilty of too much forgiveness than too much condemnation. So I try to be careful of my criticism of a brother’s failures knowing that, God forbid, if I should ever be found guilty of similar offenses I would hope with all of my heart that my brothers and sisters would extend the hand of support, fellowship and understanding that I would so desperately need.
