Camille's editorial of April 20, 2022: A perfect God, an imperfect people

If there is one thing the Bible teaches us, it is that we are an imperfect people who follow a God who is perfect. 

Many reports revealed in recent years, in France, in the United States as well as in many other places in the world, have highlighted the sexual abuse perpetrated in the Catholic Church. Sad revelations that show once again how imperfect the people of God are.

A New Jersey Diocese Just Agreed to Pay $87,5 Million to compensate approximately 300 victims of sexual violence committed by priests in the 1970s and 1980s.

The repeated scandals that have placed Australia's Hillsong megachurch in the spotlight lately are also a sad example of this reality.

Several pastors have also recently distanced themselves from Hillsong. in the United States, notably in Phoenix, Atlanta and Boston.

Despite these revelations which are always painful to read for Christians, we must rejoice to see the truth come to light, because it is the only way to move forward in humility and to see His church restored.

We are imperfect just like our leaders. However, as the CNEF reminds us as the second round of voting approaches, the Bible urges us to pray for the authorities and to respect them.

Without giving voting instructions, the National Council of Evangelicals of France calls on evangelical Protestants to "take their responsibility as citizens" and to vote “in soul and conscience before God” next Sunday.

Today's editorial concludes with the release of a new episode of the phenomenon saga "God is not dead".

In the fourth episode of this series, Reverend David Hill is called to Washington DC to defend Christian families who are homeschooling their children. The film will be broadcast in first exclusivity by Saje Distribution on the virtual cinema platform Cuult' from April 25th with speakers who will host a live discussion after the screening.
