    Yes! Exactly what I’ve been wanting to say. Great verses. A true Christian should be willing to take correction, not just say their feelings have been hurt so they refuse to listen to you.

    one needs to be very wise in ones’ correcting another, so as not to be a stumbling block before another. growth dictates changed or more comprehensive perception… what i understand as “the path” may indeed cause room for stumbling for another. am i advocating exestentialism? in my bias…to a degree, but i’m not dogmatic about the whole mess 🙂
