LOVE PEOPLE WHERE THEY ARE
Love people where they are is not about new believers one witness too. But how to deal with people that believe God but their Beliefs do not line up with yours. Since there is only one God we all believe in, we much learn how to love each other.
For the last three years God has been teaching me how to love people where they are. I have found that many people are being destroy because of lack of knowledge of the Word of God, but before one can give them the knowledge they so much need, one must learn to love them. One can love someone into change but never talk one into change. For years I try to talk others into change as so many others did.
Now I’m not saying to lie about your beliefs but to not bring up a belief just to change one. I say stands tall on your beliefs while not challenging others peoples beliefs. If you love a brother or sister where they are and you are not cutting down their beliefs but at the same time not lying about yours if question, they will come to you and ask you why you belief this or that.
That when you stand tall and tell them because your not pushing your beliefs on them and they are ready to consider a difference way. But remember for all you know you might be the one that beliefs are wrong. For there is only one correct understanding of a part of scripture but if you work together you will get the correct understanding even if both parties are wrong.
This subject is not one I can walk you through or write every thing that you will see. The best thing I can tell you that it’s a day by day with God on how to Love people where they are since there are so many types of Churches today, but one must remember that their only one Lord Jesus Christ and one Heavenly Father God.

I agree that we should certainly love everyone. That is Christ's command to us. However, what you are suggesting is tantamount to saying, "We should allow all forms of heresy to propogate and stand idly by and do nothing about it". Clearly this is not right. If we take the examples of St. Athanasius (among others) who fought against the Arian heresy, or St. Cyril when he faced Nestorius then we most certainly must correct corrupted and flawed views. It is our duty to do so. Of course, this must be done with love and respect. I am by no means suggesting we do it by force. However, we cannot just sit by and say, "You have your faith and I have mine" and that's it. We have the TRUTH, and as such we should be shouting it from the rooftops. We want all to share in this Truth that we have. We must spread the gospel as others have done before us. Of course not all will listen and accept. But then, at least we did our part and afterwards we can, "shake off the dust from your feet." (Matthew 10:14).
