How did it come to this?  Maybe you’ve wondered that about your country, or your church . . . or about yourself.  How did it come to this?

Today’s Bible story begins with the young man Saul holding people’s coats while they kill Stephen.  It ends with Saul breaking into homes and dragging people to prison.  And my question is:  How did it come to this?  How did a young man schooled in the scriptures and deeply committed to God, get wrapped up in mob violence and terrorizing people?  How did it—and for that matter, how does it—come to this?
