“Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action.” Luke 23:50-51
The Godly in this world shutter at the choices being made.
That which conflicts directly with the New Testament is not only considered right but is protected from correction attempts.
So how do we live in such a godless environment?
I am currently working my way through “God Guides” by Mary Geegh. My reading today brought me to a story of how Mary dealt with wrong. Like many of us, she was initially quick to condemn and quick, as a result, to drive someone away. God later brought this Scripture to her: “I have not come to condemn the world but to save it.” God told Mary to repent of condemning someone else……….and she did. Ultimately, a relationship was restored.
How easy it is to condemn evil. How difficult it is to see the bigger picture. If God is doing all He can to save people, I need to find ways to do that as well.
This does not mean that I am to condone evil, but instead I need to see in that evil-doer someone God loves and wants to save. I must do all I can to function within His framework.
