Let’s Go Kiss Us Some Icons

If we are called to walk on the old paths, and we are, then this scriptural illustration makes it clear that there are two ways to disobey. We can veer off to the right or to the left, and we are commanded to do neither. “Ye shall observe to do therefore as the LORD your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left” (Dt. 5:32).

So if you grew up in the left ditch, there is no way to urge repentance, asking your companions to come with you back to the road, without looking to them as though you are arguing for life in the right ditch. To further complicate matters, and because the devil is a clever fellow, some of those that you do persuade to come with you back to the road will take the first opportunity that presents itself to tumble into the right ditch, all while giving you a bunch of the credit. Then you have deal with them, and their arguments, along with taunts from the left ditch behind you. “See? See?”
