…evangelicalism right now is at least as much in need of Reformation as Medieval Roman Catholicism was before Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the castle church. We need to face that squarely, rather than reflexively defending our “movement” in the wake of a scandal like this.
I’ve been working through 1 Peter 2:11-12 this week which essentially says that our biggest challenge in a world that is cynical of Christians is not them. The biggest challenge is us.
Lord, have mercy.
