It is Reblog Friday. Today I would like to share a post from an old friend regarding sexual abuse and the Duggar Family posted on Blog Spot. I know I normally stay away from controversial topics; okay, that is a lie; I love to take on controversial subjects. Why? Well, God helped me realize that not speaking is actually speaking.
In David Platt’s book Counter Culture, I was very much moved by the following statements:
Those issues are not my concern, they think. I’m more comfortable talking about other issues.
But what if Christ commands us to make these issues our concern? And what if Christ’s call in our lives is not to comfort in our culture? What if Christ in us actually compels us to counter our culture? Not to quietly sit and watch evolving culture trends and not to subtly shift our views amid changing culture ties, but to courageously share and show our convictions through what we say and how we live, even (or especially) when those convictions contradict the popular positions of our days. And to do all of this not with conceited minds or calloused hearts, but with the humble compassion of Christ on constant display in everything we say and do.
I believe my friend Amie did this in her very honest and heartfelt blog post. It is a beautiful peace written by a a pastor’s wife, adoptive mom/foster mom, and social worker who has personally investigated over 100 cases of sexual abuse. It is well worth your time and a great read!
