Words of Wisdom | Convicting the Guilty

Convict as a verb means to find or prove to be guilty. Usually this is in a court of law before a judge and jury. What if your case never makes if before a judge and jury? The lack of conviction is devastating in the life of victims. Most victims of childhood crimes rarely seek justice. When they do seek help from the court systems, many find no real answers, justice, or help.

“I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt! I said to myself, “In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds.” 

Ecclesiastes 3:16

Since biblical times our courtrooms have been currupt. It’s just the truth.

We can still convict the guilty by using our words, telling our truth, and living in our stories. Being a Christian should not change our dedication to such matters.

Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent” —
peoples will curse him and nations denounce him.
But it will go well with those who convict the guilty,
and rich blessing will come upon them.”

Provers 24:24

Forgiveness and convicting are two separate things. Both should coexist. Convict the guilty. You could be saving the next child from their abuse.
