Christians: What Would Jesus Do in This Situation?

Question by blue moon: Christians: What would Jesus do in this situation?
Basically my best friend is a drug addict and hes in jail and is still using drugs in there as well which I just found out. Should I tell his family hes doing drugs in jail because they keep giving him so much money and hes using it for drugs, I know this. Also, would Jesus still be his friend and stand by him & help him to get clean?
Or would Jesus cut ties with him?

Please give scripture to back your answer.

1) Should I tell his family hes doing drugs in jail because they keep giving him so much money and hes using it for drugs

Yes. Presumably, his family is more interested in helping him than in funding the habit that got him incarcerated in the first place. That money could be spent (saved) for rehab.

2) Also, would Jesus still be his friend and stand by him & help him to get clean?

Sin is sin. Jesus loves us all despite our sins. He will always assist the truly repentant person.

Scripture: not directly relevant, but here we see some of the most serious sins and Jesus’ willingness to forgive them:

    Jesus always addressed the problem face to face in many, many scriptures. His family (unbeknownst to you) may be the one giving him the drugs. Jesus never turned away from anyone in need.
