Apt to teach

I still too often do read on the net the much too many false justifications of bashing, bullying specific supposedly bad preachers still and too often using an approach that clearly violates the teaching of Jesus Christ Himself..
 
Luke 6:27 But I say to you who are listening now to Me: [in order to heed, make it a practice to] love your enemies, treat well (do good to, act nobly toward) those who detest you {and} pursue you with hatred,
Luke 6:28 Invoke blessings upon {and} pray for the happiness of those who curse you, implore God’s blessing (favor) upon those who abuse you [who revile, reproach, disparage, and high-handedly misuse you].
Luke 6:29 To the one who strikes you on the jaw {or} cheek, offer the other jaw {or} cheek also; and from him who takes away your outer garment, do not withhold your undergarment as well.
Luke 6:30 Give away to everyone who begs of you [who is in want of necessities], and of him who takes away from you your goods, do not demand {or} require them back again.
Luke 6:31
And as you would like {and} desire that men would do to you, do exactly so to them.
Luke 6:32
If you [merely] love those who love you, what quality of credit {and} thanks is that to you? For even the [very] sinners love their lovers (those who love them).
Luke 6:33
And if you are kind {and} good {and} do favors to {and} benefit those who are kind {and} good {and} do favors to {and} benefit you, what quality of credit {and} thanks is that to you? For even the preeminently sinful do the same.
Luke 6:34
And if you lend money at interest to those from whom you hope to receive, what quality of credit {and} thanks is that to you? Even notorious sinners lend money at interest to sinners, so as to recover as much again.
Luke 6:35
But love your enemies and be kind {and} do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting {and} hoping for nothing in return {but} considering nothing as lost {and} despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense, and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind {and} charitable {and} good to the ungrateful {and} the selfish and wicked.
Luke 6:36
So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is [all these].
Luke 6:37
Judge not [neither pronouncing judgment nor subjecting to censure], and you will not be judged; do not condemn {and} pronounce guilty, and you will not be condemned {and} pronounced guilty; acquit {and} forgive {and} release (give up resentment, let it drop), and you will be acquitted {and} forgiven {and} released.
Luke 6:38
Give, and [gifts] will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will they pour into [the pouch formed by] the bosom [of your robe and used as a bag]. For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you.
 
I do not oppose the right of do anyone’s free speech, their  right to be heard as well, the right to object, rebuke now too.. but still   it must always still be done in love.. not in self glorifications, not in the bashings, bulling manners.
 
(2 Tim 2:24 KJV)  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25  In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
 
(2 Tim 3:1 KJV)  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  2   For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,4   Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
