I just watched a great talk by Ligon Duncan on loving our neighbour – it’s well worth watching the whole thing if you’ve got a spare hour. He touches on a lot of the things which we are concerned with here on Friend Zone.
As I was watching, the question struck me: if you have a neighbour (of the opposite sex) who needs your help, what’s the right solution? To love them. It’s not right to use the law to justify ourselves, to ‘find a loophole’, to get out of our obligation to do the right thing.
The great news is that Christ came that we might be redeemed and have the power to live those lives of love which sin has marred.
It’s a great talk – do watch if you have time.
