I’m not necessarily reblogging this because I agree, but it does interact with a good question: If the Holy Spirit has been guiding Christians throughout history, why have there been atrocities and injustices committed by Christians? I particularly like the Wilberforce quote: ““[it is] the glory of Christianity, to extinguish the malignant passions; to curb the violence, to control the appetites, and to smooth the asperities of man; to make us compassionate and kind, and forgiving one to another; to make us good husbands, good fathers, good friends; and to render us active and useful in the discharge of the relative social and civil duties…[it is the] maintenance of that sobriety of spirit and tenderness of conscience, which are eminently characteristic of the true Christian.”
