“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” (2 Timothy 3:16 NLT)
The future belongs to the young and so it is they in particular who must face this urgent question: Ought we not to take more seriously again the familiar system of values which can help us determine what to do? I am not suggesting a nostalgic retreat into the past; but perhaps we should chart our future course with the help of a certain compass, which may not have outlived its usefulness after all. A compass which — after many other instruments have proved to have given only unreliable bearings in the tempests of modern times — could perhaps point us a course toward a future of greater human dignity. A compass that might reorientate us with essential Christian values once more, and in a new way, in an era whose values have been so impoverished.
