In my opinion it is unloving not to tell a brother or a sister that they are sinning. The Bible clearly says in James 5:19-20, "Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins."
