In that same interview with CNN, Al Mohler affirmed that Christians must be careful and considerate of the forums in which they make moral pronouncements. He was right. And Christians who do have a public voice, and take on the burden of teaching, should welcome the accountability other Christians can provide as a safeguard against the own sinfulness that can well up in our hearts. Our platforms are never more important than our faithfulness.
Let us remember that whatever light is in us did not come from us. Let us remember our responsibility to share that light, and hold each other accountable as children of a holy and perfect King.
