Too often, our culture is absorbed with the lies that energize the world. Many are very busy rejoicing in iniquity rather than the truth. Paul sets one over and against the other to reorient the believer. If we are to love as God loves, we will not take delight in those who fall to the sin-cursed world in which we live. Sin will be acknowledged as a destroyer and we grieve for even our enemies caught in it. We rejoice, however, for the advancement of the truth.
