Believers who backslide don’t need our judgment. What they really need is our love. And love doesn’t expose sin. Love covers it. And we need to understand that’s what people need. In Luke 22:31, Jesus told Peter, “You’re going to fall and you’re going to backslide, but because I prayed for you, don’t you worry about it—I’ve got you covered!”
