trying to mix oil and water

How can I be harsh with you while trying to say we need more of Jesus?

Jesus was gentle.

A fig tree cannot produce grapes; nor can peace come from violence. The violent thought and word can never heal; it can only wound.

My friends, I cannot, in good conscience, preach the gospel out of anger.

When I forget that, please forgive me.

Holy Spirit, shield others from my bullets. Jesus, forgive me for stabbing you.
