THE INNOCENT ARE SAFE

[Of Special Interest to Young People]

Must we accept the statement, so often heard today, that youth has nothing to look forward to except insecurity, danger, and futility? Or can the young men and women confronted with today's problems face them with the same confidence in good which brought Daniel safely out of the den of lions? Daniel said (6:22), "My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me." And then he revealed the secret of his security: "Forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me."

Innocence is a protective armor available to all. The truly innocent are those who see the allness of God, good, and the unreality of evil. The prophet Habakkuk said (1:13), "Thou [God] art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity." Since man, as recorded in the first chapter of the Bible, is created in God's image and likeness, this innocence also belongs to him.
