David McIlory answers questions related to his talk "Understanding the Self-Righteousness that Pervades Our Modern Culture" given at the 2022 European Leadership Forum.

We live in a culture in which forgiveness is increasingly out of fashion. In contrast, we hear voices that drip with self-righteous indignation. How can we as Christians understand and respond to this current cultural moment? This session looks at the need for truth, judgment and forgiveness in the Church, in law, and in society.
