Matthew 11:20-24

What then is the sin of Chorazin and Bethsaida? It was a sin of a people who forgot the responsibility of privilege. It was a sin of indifference. The cities did not attack Jesus. They did not stone him. They did not drive him from their city gates. They did not seek to crucify him. They just ignored him and his message. Indifference does not burn a religion to death, it freezes it to death. It does not behead it; it slowly suffocates it.
