Chad Bird and Daniel Emory Price have put together what is perhaps the most biblical response to the Josh Dugger abuse situation that I have read so far. There is so much in this article that I don’t even know where to begin. It is good from start to finish. The following quote from their post is the key thought in my opinion,
The greatest witness that Christians can present to the world is not their own morality, their ideal family, or their dream marriage, but their weaknesses and sins and failures, all of which have been atoned for by the crucified and resurrected Jesus. Our witness is never, “Look at how well we’re doing at being good,” but always, “Look at the good Savior who died for our evils.”
The true scandal is not what Josh Dugger did, although it was terrible. It wasn’t even the wrong way in which the family handled the situation (which was also a tragedy). The true scandal is that God in Christ came to become sin for the ungodly and to bear the shame of the victim.
