Some say that God is judging America for immorality and abortion. Whether you agree, a larger Christian ethics problem predated any lapse in America’s moral decline: unforgiveness.
Jesus taught us to forgive, lest we not be forgiven. But, America has not forgiven the sins of our best political candidates. As a result, Christians surrendered elections to candidates who are no less sinful, but are better at hiding their sin from the public eye.
Had we not cannibalized our best candidates, they might have been able to prevent moral decline. By not forgiving ourselves, we condemned ourselves.
