Some people lean hard into truth at the expense of grace while other people focus on grace at the expense of truth. Jesus said we are to be “full of grace AND truth”.

Jewish law was clear…she deserved death, but Jesus declared, “Neither do I condemn you.” But, he continues on and says, “Go now and leave your life of sin.” He...
