You Can Confront Leaders (even God) without Them being Dishonored — A Quote by Danny Silk in “Culture of Honor”

“Abraham then proceeded to ask more questions: ‘Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?’ God stood there, being confronted by Abraham, and responded, ‘Yeah, you are right. I would spare the city for fifty righteous men.’ This is profound! God is confrontable! It is unusual, because we’ve come to know ‘leadership’ as unconfrontable. We classically interpret confrontation of leadership as dishonor.”
