SUFFER THEM TO COME UNTO ME
Luke 5:31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. (KJV)
Society often stigmatize and despise people who are tagged "unchristian". The people who are often stigmatized ranges from the prostitute, drunkard, robber, atheist, and the like all because are sinners.
In Jesus' teaching He in today's scripture, He made a profound statement which played a major part of His ministry here on earth - He said, "it is not the strong who needs a doctor but they that are weak/sick". By this statement, He meant, He came for the outcast like the prostitute, the drunkard, the robber, the liar, etc.
Whoever they are, Jesus is saying, SUFFER THEM TO COME UNTO ME! Don't refuse anyone the access to Christ. Preach the Gospel without sentiments for it is because of the people you are denying the Gospel that Christ came.
In Luke 18:16, Jesus said, ...suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for such is the kingdom of God. There's no favouritism in the kingdom of God. Whoever comes to Christ is accepted and welcomed (Romans 10:12-13 emphasis mine) - forbid them not! Don't deny the weak the chance to hear about Christ because you feel they must die in their sins and go to hell - WHO MADE YOU A JUDGE? SUFFER THEM TO COME UNTO ME.
THE PEOPLE YOU DESPISED AND CALLED UNCLEAN, SINNERS OR EVEN TRASH, JESUS CALLS TREASURES - what else is your problem? Preach the Gospel to all so they may come to repentance in Christ Jesus.
God Bless You
