Suppose that in a certain community lives a man and his wife who love each other very much. Across the street lives a man who develops a hatred for the womans husband. One night he invades their home and kills him. Although he is arrested, a loophole in the law allows him to escape punishment, and he is released to return to the community. Now imagine that in a few short weeks you see the widow and her husbands murderer walking down the street together. Her hand is slipped into his arm and she looks smilingly into his face. She says to him, “Im so happy.” What would you say about a woman like that? Surely you would brand her as disloyal to her husbands memory and unworthy to bear his name.
We must never forget that this godless world hated Jesus enough to kill Him. One who walks hand in hand with a system headed by our Lords enemies and becomes friendly with them is disloyal to Jesus Christ. Only those who keep themselves “unspotted from the world” (James 1:27) have a right to bear the name Christian. Lets avoid all unholy alliances. -P.R.V.
