J.D. Greear recently published an article on his blog discussing how as he finished preaching through a series on the book of Judges at his church he realized how easy it is to read Judges and condemn the people for their heinous acts. But, as J.D. writes:
[W]e’ve got to realize that we aren’t any different. What we see in Judges 17–21 is just the inevitable result of casting off the rule of God. It begins with re-defining morality, and it always ends with the strong oppressing the weak.
This raises the question for us: who are the weak among us today? Where has our society, in a frantic rush to dismiss the wisdom of God, left a trail of pain and brokenness in its wake?
