If we treat someone as if the Gospel did not apply to them.

… if we, by our words and deeds, act in such a way that Christ’s teaching, his warning, his law, and his Gospel do not impact how we deal with them…

then no amount of knowledge (for what good is knowledge that does not give birth to action) or words (let us love not just in words but in truth and action)…

can ever overcome our continuing and unrepentant sin.
