The Lord tells you to rebuke a rich person, but you don't want to offend the rich person, so you modify the truth to make it palatable. Know that you will be held responsible for anything that happens to that person.
We should speak truth without fear.
God is no respecter of persons. If you are scared of the faces of men, you will not go far in ministry.
To be used of the Lord you must be sold out to God in obedience. And, your obedience will be rewarded.
