00:01 Now I've been sharing all of this through quotations
00:04 from the pen of Ellen White and that's fine.
00:08 Somebody got to say unto me,
00:09 well, is there no where in the Bible
00:11 where the same concept can be seen and can be found.
00:14 Well, we did read of course from John 3:19,
00:18 "This is the condemnation." Yeah.
00:22 But how do we deal with people,
00:24 who hurt us, how do we deal with people we want to save.
00:27 Not by condemnation, look with me at 2 Corinthians,
00:31 2 Corinthians Chapter 5 and we're looking at verse 19.
00:35 Perhaps we even should start a little before verse 19.
00:38 Maybe we'll start in verse 18, where in 2 Corinthians 5:18,
00:46 "And all things are of God,
00:48 who hath reconciled us by Himself by Jesus Christ,
00:53 to Himself by Jesus Christ and has given to us
00:55 the ministry of reconciliation."
00:57 So God has a method He knows what is doing.
01:00 He is working for our reconciliation
01:02 and He gives us the ministry of reconciliation.
01:05 Look at verse 19 it tells us how to do it,
01:08 "To wit, that God was in Christ,
01:10 reconciling the world to Himself,
01:11 now watch not imputing their trespasses unto them,
01:15 in other words not by condemning them
01:18 and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation."
