Shame. Many say it’s a bad thing.
But is it?
There’s been a lot written about the negative effects of shame. Too many Christian writers have also bought into this false theory that shame is always a bad thing. Consequently, too many parents have to.
Shame is a God-given emotion that actually plays a positive role in our lives in its proper context. Shame is like fire or water. It can be destructive in one context but productive in another. But that’s not what we’ve been taught.
It’s the mistake we make when biblical concepts, definitions, and standards get forsaken, twisted, and surrendered to secular theory. Do you think the Antifa rioters are ashamed of their actions? Not on your life. But they ought to be.
