This quote from my devotional reading really made me think …. we all like to blame the ills of the world on somebody else. Maybe we need to take a closer look within ourselves before we assign the blame.
“The real corrupters of society may be, not the corrupt, but those who have held back the righteous leaven, the salt that has lost its savor, the innocent who have not even the moral courage to show what they think of the effrontery of impurity,–the serious, who yet timidly succumb before some loud-mouthed scoffer,—the heart trembling all over with religious sensibilities that yet suffers itself through false shame to be beaten down into outward and practical acquiescence by some rude and worldly nature.”
