People of the world think the truth is too hard to tell others. So they don’t tell a dying person, for example, that he has little time left to live. They deprive the person of taking advantage of his last days on earth and preparing himself for eternity.
So then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
Galatians 4:16 NET
Telling the truth to one needing to hear it is to be a friend. Paul saw the Galatians abandoning the gospel and losing their salvation. He had to tell them the true situation, so that something worse would not happen to them, the loss of God’s grace.
Ignoring the truth never contributes to a solution.
He who loves, tells the truth.
