Imagine falling and breaking your arm. It’s obviously broken. You have a friend drive you to the hospital where a doctor takes one look at your arm and disappears. Moments later he returns with a small bandage. When you ask what good the bandage will do for your broken arm, he scoffs at you.  “It’s not broken,” he chuckles, “just a little scrape. You’ll be fine. Don’t be a baby.” My guess is that you’ll leave and get a second opinion! Such a scenario would be ridiculous! Yet, many take a similar approach to problems in society. Relationships are healed by finding someone else. Immorality is explained away by tolerance. Education and money will bring peace.  But applying man-made solutions hasn’t worked for thousands of years. The only real cure is a new heart through faith in Christ.
