In case you’ve missed the controversy over the past couple of months, an artist named Kristen Visbal recently sculpted a statue called Fearless Girl, which depicts a little girl in a flamboyantly defiant pose. Visbal then placed Fearless Girl in front of a much more famous statue: Charging Bull. In doing so, Visbal has staged a wonderfully dramatic scene: It looks as if a giant bull is rushing the girl, and that she is completely undaunted.
A lot of people cringe when they hear Christians say, “love the sinner and hate the sin,” but does anybody have a better idea? Should we love the sin along with the sinner? Should we hate the sinner along with his sins? Recently, our culture has answered “yes” to both alternatives, applying one rule to friends and the other to enemies.
