Repenting for the definitions we have created
We come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium, altered definitions and thereby reversed our values.
Look at how we have changed the definition of words.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
Choice — We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable.
Building self esteem
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.
Freedom of expression
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honoured values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
