We cannot allow ourselves to be taken captive by the thinking of this world, which chooses conformity over truth.
I remember a conversation that took place one evening between two brothers in the church, one of whom was attending a CR group at the time. The first man took issue with a statement made by the second to the effect that "all addicts were liars." It seemed that from his perspective a blanket statement of this sort labeling all who struggle with addiction, was unfair and judgemental. The second brother endeavored to explain that his opinion in great part was based on his own past experience as a drug abuser, but to no avail. And after several minutes of back and forth debate the matter was eventually dropped, leaving me to wonder which of the two opinions best served the christian cause.
