Rebellion has many faces. When a people lose their moorings—forget who brought them to the dance — it becomes crazy time—like unlocking the cages at the zoo. “the way of transgressors is hard” (Prov 13.15). Expect the nut bars to emerge.
Godly people live godly lifestyles. Lost people often do not follow suite. Is there wisdom in knowing the difference in doing right and in forcing lost people to do right?
May I not lose my peace and joy because lost people will not behave as if they were redeemed.
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let hm be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still” (Rev. 22.11).
