Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 37

37. Men loved darkness rather than light (John 3:19).

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised when sinners make choices that contradict God’s Word. Often, it seems the modern church reacts to sinfulness with an outrage that seems to imply such behavior was unexpected. Really? If the righteous can be expected to act righteously (hardly a given) then shouldn’t those who have not chosen righteousness be expected to act according to the path they have chosen? Mankind prefers to live and to act under the cover of darkness because there is a need to keep those actions hidden from the consequence of judgment. When such behaviors are brought into the light, they cannot endure the scrutiny of others. Once a choice is brought into the light, it’s power is gone and a price must be paid.
