Dear Friends, this is David Telbat. Thanks for joining us for my post, “The Worst Crime; Inside Steadfast Book Four.” What is the worst crime ever committed? There are many horrible crimes committed in our world today, and when we are the victims, there sometimes seems to be very little healing or recovery. How could we ever move on? How can we help others move on when they are the victims? What should we say to give them hope? This is the challenge of Steadfast Book Four (now available!). Imagine a crime that leaves you speechless, and then you trust God to bring healing through it all. And as Christians, are we willing to rely on God to lead us toward forgiveness?
The Crimes of Today
Daily, we are confronted with horrible crimes. The media seems addicted to bringing out the vilest in every situation, twisting it to make it seem even worse, if that is possible. But that’s not the worst part. The world offers no real healing to the victims of crimes, nor any real help to make sense of today’s horrors.
The world offers a long list of platitudes to deal with crimes committed against us. Medication is offered, and counseling is suggested, but people who don’t know who God is cannot possibly help those who most need the only One who can bring true and miraculous healing. The world is blind, yet it offers to lead the way.
