Our culture seems increasingly unwilling to identify evil and call it what it is. But, we live in a fallen world where it is real. God’s people must stand up against it.
Of course, being honest with the reality of evil forces us to address difficult theological questions. Why does God allow evil? Here, I think Os Guinness’ book, Unspeakable: Facing Up to the Challenge of Evil is must reading.
Unfortunately, one of the most monstrous forms evil takes is when those in Christian leadership take advantage of people under their care. Pastor James Emery White talks about how local churches should not and should respond in this post. (Click here).
As for those who perpetrate such evil, it would have been far better for them if they had drowned first (Matthew 18:6).
