Reprove Them

Eph 5:11  Have no part in the things that people in darkness do, which produce nothing good. Instead, tell everyone how wrong those things are. 
Eph 5:12  Actually, it is shameful to even talk about the things those people do in secret. 

Eph 5:13  But the light makes clear how wrong those things are. (ERV)

Sometimes in a chatroom someone will use vile words, filthy talk and often they will use these words towards someone with an opposing viewpoint of life. People with similar viewpoints say nothing to the vile speaking person. There is no decency in this type of behavior. We are to reprove such a one. Show them that their speech is unacceptable in a public place. When reproved, the focus turns to you who have warned him of his filthy talk. Be prepared to be spattered with evil words when reproving a vile person. We are to care for their soul and also be the light in a room taken over by darkness. If they continue to bad mouth you, click the ignore button or remove yourself from their presence. Have no fellowship with darkness. We can however be friendly to those of opposing viewpoints. Be respectful and try to bring kindness to the conversation.

Psa 50:20  You sit around talking about people, finding fault with your own brothers. 
Psa 50:21  When you did these things, I said nothing. So you thought that I was just like you. But I will not be quiet any longer. I will correct you and make clear what I have against you. 

Psa 50:22  You people who have forgotten God, understand what I am telling you, or I will tear you apart, and no one will be able to save you! (ERV)

Is there is no fear of God in the land?
