As a friend, Christian, father, husband, pastor, and broken-sinner, I am utterly shocked at the weakness of men, especially those claiming to be Christian men. I have been one. You may be one. And so, envision me as a sincere friend like friends of mine, willing to lose everything to see you changed, with backbone conviction, staring you straight in the eye with full understanding of what has happened in your life, with an unwavering, deep, and slow voice saying, "You are weak."
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. King Solomon in Proverbs 27:6
