Is it necessary to point out sin?

The people who want sin condoned, and get upset when others point out the sin or say that such do not belong in the church, do not realize we are doing what we were commanded to do:

Ephesians 5:11

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

1 Corinthians 5:11

But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.

Jude 1:3-4

3 Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. 4 For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.

So yes, we are to point out sin, to contend for the faith.

But these sinners who want to do what they wish refuse to see the truth because they do not fear God:

Psalm 36:1-4

1 An oracle is within my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 For in his own eyes he flatters himself too much to detect or hate his sin. 3 The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; he has ceased to be wise and to do good. 4 He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.

Unrepentant sinners value ‘rights’ and the ability to change society to condone their sin. But listen to Christ:
Luke 16:15

He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God’s sight.”

So often we want to embrace our sin and justify ourselves instead of embrace truth and recognize and reject our sin.

However, there will come a time when God’s patience will be at its limit. At that time, Jesus will judge everyone, and the ones who do not love Him, and show their love through obedience, will be sent to the lake of Fire, the second death.

2 Timothy 4:1-3

1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Rev 20:11-15

11 Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. 15 If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Be warned folks, we are in the end times. Christ is coming back, and it DOES matter where you fall on believing Him or not.
