Modern-day believers in Christ are not influencing the world around them—they neither are responding like the “salt” (a preservative) nor the “light” (a guide) that Christ Jesus says they are to be. Instead, they are Christians who have buried their heads in the sand, simply because they have committed the fundamental error of misunderstanding their calling. Once again, for the record, their calling is EVERY believer’s calling: They are to minister (serve the Lord and others) by evangelizing (preaching), making disciples, and teaching the Gospel (Word of God)!
Contrary to popular opinions, as a whole, the world is NOT getting any better. Consequently, the embarrassing fact is that, as a whole, humans’ treatments of other humans are less than exemplary! But, what the heck, since racism and sexism aren’t directly affecting us, we figure that because there are not that many people who are speaking out about racism and sexism these days, then, as far as the issues of racism and sexism are concerned, everyone must be doing okay! Talk about burying our heads in the sand!
