Jesus never soft peddle anything. Here he makes this statement: Luke 17:1-3 (NLT2) "One day Jesus said to his disciples, “There will always be temptations to sin, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting! It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a millstone hung around your neck than to cause one of these little ones to fall into sin. So watch yourselves! “If another believer sins, rebuke that person; then if there is repentance, forgive."
Have you ever caused another to sin. Probably so! Sometimes in the way we act we cause others to think that behavior is acceptable but in the eyes of God it is not. Therefore, by our actions we cause one to sin, especially a new believer. Jesus said if you do that, you really deserve to die. Be careful how you talk and act.
