Writer's Wednesday - Benedict Groeschel, CFR

A London newspaper once invited various popular writers to submit articles for a series about 'what's wrong with the world?' G.K. Chesterton, the Catholic apologist, submitted the following letter:


I am.

Sincerely yours,
G.K. Chesterton

Most thinking Christians feel the same way about themselves. What's wrong with the world? They are! We are! Many others seem to have lost any sense of sin. Modern pop-psychology has successfully convinced many that the experience of guilt is merely an unhealthy habit to be avoided at all costs. Yet the Holy Spirit is constantly at work in our heart to convince us of the need to struggle against our tendency of rebellion against God.
