Do you have contempt for the wicked? What about those who hold different beliefs than you do? Does this open the door for ridicule and scorn? Yet is this Christlike behavior? You may think that contempt is justified by their conduct. Yet the question here is not about them, but about you. For contempt is a characteristic, and those who give in to it are contemptuous people. How would you justify exercising it against anyone who was created in my image? How would this be consistent with love? You can and should disagree with people who do not speak and practice the truth, but you can do this without holding them in contempt.
