This is a quote from a book that I am currently reading.  It has not yet been published but the author speaks the truth in meaniful and significant ways. I look forward to encouraging that others read this book when it is published.

This quote highlights a dangerous trend that we must be aware of and encourage our family and friends to reject the idea that we can alter the truth.

"As the world becomes desensitized to these sins, many in our society are not just advocating acceptance of sin – but also flipflopping right and wrong – stating that anyone who advocates a virtuous life in alignment with God’s commandments is intolerant, bigoted, closed-minded, and even evil."

Especially during these Lenten days let us be strong in repenting of sin and seeking virtue.
