Truth to Power

"The corruption of sin comes to light in a wide variety of ways: business practices that take advantage of trusting customers or investors; laws and regulations that license sinful behavior and constrain the progress of righteousness; entertainment that exploits prurience and vaunts having fun as the chief end of life; cheating and lying in the marketplace and schools; false teaching in churches and universities; violence against innocent people; relationships that are fouled by sinful self-interest; and whole industries committed to the degradation of women, children, and weak-willed men. We all encounter evidence of the effects of sin every day in a world that keeps God at arm’s length from the public square and holds up His Law to contempt and scorn. How can Christians keep silent in the face of such widespread offensiveness to the holiness, justice, and beauty of God?"
