Progress, man’s distinctive mark alone,
Not God’s, and not the beasts’: God is, they are,
Man partly is and wholly hopes to be.
-- Robert Browning “A Death in the Desert”
"If we're serious about our responsibility to the church, we must take a restorative approach to help victims and offenders instead of a revenge approach that most always hurts everyone involved."
based on the context of Mr. Wray's statement I'm extrapolating we're talking about child molestation here...I agree with the spirit of Mr. Wray's statement...however, this does not unilaterally absolve offenders of their responsibility to obey civil law regarding this issue nor render them immune to the punishment meted to them via the same civil law after due process....civil punishment and rehabilitation are not mutually exclusive
