If you have lived for more than a few years, you know that this world of people is changing. Today there are many more rules and laws, problems, and threats. Life has changed from that of just 25 to 50 years ago.
In the 1950’s over half of all Americans were full-time church attendees. Today it is less than 20 percent. Europe has seen what was once the hub of the Christian movement become today a place where less than 5 percent of the population attends church of any kind.
Christianity is the key to any society’s long term survival. Whether it is done openly or under supervision, Christianity thrives when God’s people will unite together as one church living by His word, not compromising it, and putting their own personal agendas aside for the greater good of the gospel.
The Christian life is not such a complicated one, but people do make it so. We go and turn it into a seemingly endless list of regulations and rules that involve everything from how to dress, what to eat or drink, the length of one’s hair or what’s on their face, and if we believe in this part or that part or all of the Bible, and on and on.
Then we judge others according to those rules, and all we end up doing is complicating our lives and the lives of others in the process.
If we will just work together, many of the world’s situations would change because God’s will in heaven is already done, and He wants it to be on the earth as well. And He needs people with His like-mind to put their agendas and personal opinions and denominations aside and just say “yes” to His great purposes.
