The Christian Church has abdicated it’s role as the center of the community.
My definition of Christian Church is a group of people who believe that the Bible is the ultimate truth and they are fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ..
There was a time when true “Christians” were much more involved in the lives of those who lived around them. I can remember going with out a new outfit (my one of the season) because my mother had given the money designated for that outfit to someone who had less than we did. I remember adults in our church spending time with an adult to bring him to sobriety. I remember that when there was a need in the community people knew they could find help from those in our church.
The church cared for the needy – not the government!
Today the needs are so much greater but it seems fewer Christians are involved with the needs around them. Why?
“There is no greater love than one lays down his life for another.” My paraphrase 🙂
Finding ways around the reasons and the excuses is part of laying down our lives.
I’d love to hear what you think the reasons are.
I’ll let you know my thoughts Wed.
