Ironically, calling them a victim is admitting they are broken.
As you read my hypothetical heaven example above. I am unsure as to if a person with down syndrome or intersex is actually broken or not. But the truth remains broken genetics or not, God loves and values them more than they can comprehend.
I would say that is hard to teach the avg person. But if that person can be transformed by the re-newing of the HS, the knowledge of that fact IS the most important hope and truth they can believe that will help them and fill them with joy despite any situation or accusation. But that power does come from the HS, they will know the truth and it will set them free.
But without the HS, this knowledge is somewhat worthless and lacking in power.
You do make a good point though. I do admit there is a tension with regards to faith and action.
But as the saying goes an ounce of prevention…
I have always been a fan of the exponential model Jesus gave us. If you could convince 100000 people a day that what you say is right, you would be happy right? That seems like a lot of people? But it would take 208 year to convince everybody…but if you just transformed and had a consistent deep relationship with just 3 people. And those 3 had 3 people. It would only take 30 years.
I like to allow the power of God to transform from with, which will also have a foundation stronger than anything, vs a soap box that reaches many, but has no foundation to it.
No I wouldn’t tell a victim that…but I would give advice saying: if you leave a luxury car in the wrong part of town at night with the engine on and windows down and doors unlocked ect. It is very likely it is going to get stolen. It’s an unfortunate sad world we live in, but we do, so protecting one’s self and being aware of surroundings is very prudent.
I would never say that after the fact, or kick them while they are down. But I don’t believe you can legislate or dictate good morals. And preemptive defense is very wise in the world we live in. And the truth of God is the strongest defense possible.
Transformation happens from within. And that light can be shone to others and the light and love of God in us is the most powerful force in the universe.
