First Be Right With God Yourself
It’s not enough to simply be in the right. It’s not enough to be a member of the ‘Moral Majority.” It’s not enough to be against homosexuality or abortion or feminism or evolution. It’s not enough to be right about education or government tyranny or biblical liturgy or the doctrines of grace. We must first be right with God ourselves. Jesus warns us of such hypocrisy (Luke 6:39-42). The one who brings discipline must not only have the right doctrine. He or she must also have the right heart (Gal 6:1). These principles apply to the family, to the church, and to the state, for each one falls under the jurisdiction of God’s Word. Judgment will always begin in the household of God.
