A Google search will show that the United States has the largest Christian population in the world… followed by Brazil and Mexico. If you asked people in our country what it means to be a Christian, you would hear words/phrases like love, peace, grace, forgiveness, helping each other, helping foreigners, loving and helping even your enemies. These were words/phrases spoken by Jesus and represent His character.
Today when you look at the behavior of our society, you will find that much of it is inconsistent with the character of Christ… despite being the most Christian nation in the world. In this month’s Life, God, and the Universe blog entitled A Plea to Preaching Pastors, we discuss the reasons behind these inconsistencies and suggestions how local churches can remedy these inconsistencies.
