The Church and the War Against the Innocent
While I recognize that we live in broken sexual culture and that the threats to a traditional and healthy sexuality abound, I have been hesitant to write about it.
The reason for this is I simply think that it is hypocritical to point out where the world is attacking the God given identities of children without noting that some of the church is worse…and abuses young people in the name of God.
I believe that what I wrote about Daniel one is true…but it applies more broadly than just the secular culture.
One need only look at the scandals in the Roman Catholic Church and the Southern Baptist Convention (or the myriad cases I’ve written about in Calvary Chapel) to understand that we need to clean our own stall first.
Add to that the fact that numerous polls have shown that the morality in the church closely mirrors that of the surrounding culture so I’m less than comfortable setting my hair on fire about what “they” are doing.
I know a great many teachers and clergy…and I’d leave my kids with most of the teachers before I’d trust many of the clergy.
I will also note again that my godson graduated from the largest secular online school in the state…and it was a good education, taught by both Christian men and women and secular teachers who were of great help and encouragement. They all were a blessing.
My chief concern is always and will always be the church…the “heathen” will always act according to what they know…why don’t we?
May the Lord give us wisdom and the will to repent of our own sins against our future.
