June 05 – Private Morality on Camera

tfh sunriseWhat happens to private morality when the camera is watching?” Elizabeth Renzetti asked, in an insightful article in the Globe and Mail. After noting the troubling situations of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and basketball team owner Donald Sterling, both caught on camera, Renzetti comments, “there was a time in the West when a healthy fear of God kept people in line…” She’s right. The Bible warns of a day when “the dead, small and great” will be “standing before God.” The books of our lives” will be opened,” and people will be judged by God “each one according to his works.” God has always recorded our private lives. Those considering this merely a myth held by superstitious and religious zealots take a terrible gamble with tragic and eternal results. Isaiah invites, “seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near.”
