Wish I could say I am at ease with this. If I had not had to journey through the confusing communications that I found in the world I would not have fought so hard to understand the power of discernment, but I have and that ability is a gift that I must use to be able to stay in a place of repentance. Why should we think that we are to repent ourselves and then put blinders on regarding others? I do not believe that Christ did that, he saw peoples sins, he just did not partake in the attitude of blaming or labeling them. We have to be able to take the gospel as a whole and see humanity as a whole and seek to understand what Christ meant. He even said that if we live by the principles he teaches that God and he would come and live with the individual so the power of discerning as God is not an impossibility, though I will agree it is to be used very carefully, but it is a real gift of the Spirit. It forces you to look at the world in a different way. You have to so that you can align yourself with the principles that Christ teaches us.
