Show Notes
Reflecting on how to confront evil ideas, and whether and when to cut ties with a friend - or a favorite public figure - who has lost their way. First thinking about the confrontation I related in Episode 2, and then how I respond when someone who's work I love -- in this case one of my very favorite musicians -- takes a sharp turn down the wrong road.
Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV) 
15 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 
16 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 
17 "Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 
18 "A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 
19 "Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 "Therefore by their fruits you will know them."

  • He was made sin for us: 
2Co 5:17-21 (NKJV) 
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 
18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 
19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. 
20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. 
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
