"In our day of rampant evil and moral decay, mankind has only itself to blame. We cannot pin our self-imposed problems on God. It is, in fact, God’s wrathful response to our sin that explains why things are as they are. But we dare not despair. For the one who ‘gives this world over to their sin’ is the same one who ‘loved the world so much that he gave his one and only son.’"
An essay by Tullian Tchividjian, since April 2009, senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
