Guinness: the use of outrage

Wednesday, October 31, 2018
    No, we speak of God’s secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
    —1 Corinthians 2:7-8 (NIV)
    Because it lacks [the] element of outrage, the modern church needs to be reminded that, if her life and institutions are being strangled by a dying culture, then she is choking on the very truths which she has herself betrayed.
    ... Os Guinness (b. 1941), The Dust of Death, Leicester: Inter-Varsity Press, 1973, p. 386-387 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 2:7-8; Matt. 11:25; John 7:48; 1 Cor. 1:26-28; 2:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant discernment to Your church.
