Love the blasphemer

Love the blasphemer 

Since God loves the blasphemer and waits for him, we should also love these people, and we should try to help them stop this crime. When we witness others around us (whether it be our husband, our child, or our neighbor) falling into this sin of blasphemy, we should help them as much as possible with our prayers, and with our discreet manner. We should tactfully inform and appropriately advise them, with love, so that they stop wounding the hearts of our Christ and our Panagia, and so that the devil can no longer celebrate. For he knows that at the time of death they will meet God as a merciless Judge, and he (the devil) will take them. The fact that there are men who come for confession, who return, who cry and change their way of life, is very heartwarming and encouraging. This is the result of both God’s enlightenment as well as the prayers and guidance of their fellow Christians, especially their pious wives. For this reason, aided by God’s grace, let us help these people as much as we can, so that the devil continuously loses souls and Christ gains them. Amen.

Elder Ephraim of Arizona
