How We Should Respond to Spotlight

I am a member of Providence Road Church in Norman, and I wrote about Spotlight for their blog. Here’s an excerpt:

“But while we acknowledge the problems within the Catholic Church’s authority structure (and are careful to keep our own leaders humble lest they forget who is really in charge), we have certainty that this ultimately comes back to our shared depravity as human beings. This doesn’t excuse the Catholic Church. And it doesn’t excuse our church if we become careless with our pastors’ authority. But understanding that sin is the foundation for every injustice gives us the perspective we need to be angry at the right things. We want justice, but we want correct justice.”
