One thought on “Is Confidentiality Christian? – Should you keep a friend’s sin secret?

  1. So, the question did Jesus do that? I mean I do agree to some degree,
    But the context of the Corinthians is that there was prostitution as part of the church. So of course you would have to address it to the church. Which leads us to another question. Who is the church? Surely, the church of today doesn’t meet the standards of trust they had for each other in the apostolic times. Have you sold your possessions and given to each that has need? What about John 8:7? Jesus didn’t go tell everyone about Mary’s sin or the sins of those who accused her. You can’t reach someone without trust and caring. That’s why I believe
    most won’t tell people their strongholds, because they don’t trust. That
    has to be earned.
    In Christ
    N H Chapman
