A pastor friend of mine, Shawn, is fond of saying, â€œYou can either scream at the darkness, or you can light a candle.â€ More
and more I have seen the wisdom of that statement. Christians can see darkness a mile away, and get really loud about it. Yet, we are not so swell at being, well, you know, the whole â€œlight of the world thing.â€ Christians are often appalled at the wickedness of the culture and the compromise within the Church. I did a little research before I wrote this, and you can find whole websites devoted to â€œunveilingâ€ all the wolves in sheepâ€™s clothing. Apparently, some guy who owns a website finds it to be his personal commission from God to lump Oswald Chambers, Charles Spurgeon, John Piper, CS Lewis, Joel Osteen and Oprah into one massive heretical lump.
