He Has the Power
My cousin is a detective in the CAPERS, or Crimes Against Persons division of a local police department. In twenty years of service, he has seen every kind of criminal there is. The worst are child molesters. No amount of therapy will ever turn them around. They would have to be remade, he says – to change from the inside out. I agree. “In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind. And the light shines on in the darkness, but the darkness has not mastered it.” (John 1:4, 5) Only Christ can turn a criminal into a saint. Only Christ can give him the power to overcome sin.
