The Art of Godliness, Episode 4: Scandal in the Church

The Art of Godliness

Today I bring you episode 4 of The Art of Godliness podcast, the show that thinks out loud and in public about how to “lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” In past episodes we have discussed conflict in the church, honoring our parents, and family devotions. Today we turn our attention to scandal in the church. The sad fact is there will always be some degree of scandal among Christians and through the Internet we have greater access to them than ever before. In this episode we discuss how we should respond to scandals that rock the church.

    We All Have To Do With God

    Every one of us must deal with God. Every one of us must, at some time, face God. Every one of us must be prepared to give an account to God. For, as Scripture says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto…
