An Interesting Thought From DA Carson

“What you worship you soon resemble (Ps. 115:8); more, you identify with it, defend it, make common cause with it—and if it is an abomination to God, soon you are an abomination to him. So the “glory” departs (Hos. 9:11), whether in the sense of reputation, or self-respect, or moral leadership, or, finally, the very presence of God (Ezek. 8:6; 11:23).

To defend a king or a president because of his economic policies when the moral core has evaporated means we have become as vile as the things we love.” ~ DA Carson, For the Love of God

  1. Moral issues should always be more important than economic ones.

  2. Common sense, really when you think about it. Which we do too rarely.
