In a previous article, I suggested that if you really wanted to see a vast and intricate systemic evil, working out in the open on all fronts, with every single important social institution going along, you need look no farther than at the system of family destruction, subheading inguinal. I ended by asking what the churches have been doing to fight the system.
Mostly they have gone along. We aren’t talking about a system that they inherited as part of the settled ways of a secular and always sin-riddled world. We should be slow to condemn churches for not innovating, because the burden of proof is always on the innovator, not on someone who wants to keep the peace, as compromised as it may be.
But what about churches that rush to make common cause with the innovators, to be part of the new system?
