Stalwart

In the evening of yesterday, I spoke with a young man who told these sentiments: “I hate it when people speak in a hard-set way of themselves and others of their group as being so right, and of dissenters of their views as being so wrong.” In my judgment the  statement was a pure one, with no moral and biblical absolutes being in the mix, so don’t think the atmosphere was of liberality with a paucity of high-set bars and a lack of virtuous expectations. Not at all, for at the core of the conversation was the thought that we as people who are striving for godliness need to be precisely aligned with God’s Word.

My heart–not that beating one–the other one, the seat of my emotions, lurched in my breast and brimmed with pleasure and a certain pride.
