We live in an Alice in Wonderland world where many things are backwards and upside down. Our sexuality is to be public, while our faith life is to be private. Toleration must be taught, but ethics cannot be. Much of what used to be right is now wrong, and much of what used to be wrong is now right. In such a confused environment, what is a Christian to do? We must rediscover what it means to be salt and light. Matt 28:18-20; Rom 10:12-15; Matt 5:13-16; 1Peter 3:8-16; Ex 12:24-27
One of the consequences of sin--of living in a world filled with it--is shame. For the believer, shame is often how the Holy Spirit convicts us when we knowingly disobey God. We'll call it anything but shame--embarrassment, offense, annoyance. We'll be frustrated, confused, and offended, but seldom ashamed. Should we be ashamed of our actions when they go against God's Word, and what happens as we more and more become a shameless society? There's an interesting account of Jesus in John 8 which reveals how we should not only view the shame and sin of others and ourselves, but how we can act with both forgiveness and compassion--under conviction but without condemning. In this message, Dr. Merritt unpacks the fascinating and fundamental issue of shame and sin in our lives.
