But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian  sees a brother in need, and 
won’t help him - how can God’s love be within him? Little children, let us 
stop just saying we love people; let us really love them, and show it by our 
actions. 1 John 3: 17-18

Romans 14: 1: Give a warm welcome to any brother who wants to join you, even 
though his faith is weak. Don’t criticize him for having different ideas from 
yours about what is right and wrong.

Romans 14: 3-4: For God has accepted them to be his children. They are God’s 
servants, not yours. They are responsible to him, not to you. Let him tell 
them whether they are right or wrong. And God is able to make them do as they 

Mark 9: 38-40: One of his disciples, John, told him one day, Teacher, we saw a 
man using your name to cast out demons; but we told him not to, for he isn’t 
one of our group.

Don’t forbid him! Jesus said. For no one doing miracles in my name will 
quickly turn against me. Anyone who isn’t against us is for us.

I could post more, but I think this will suffice. :-)
