So a good friend of mine is a christian. Now let me clarify before i ask questions here that i have nothing against your religion or philosophy, in
fact i agree with a lot of it. I do disagree with the medium but lets not make that what this thread is about.
So here is what i am to find out. Lets look at the philosophy of changing yourself to change your world and compare them to ideas of faith and
allowing god to work in your life.
At what point does you changing your environment become a step away from allowing god to work in your life?
Do you get what im asking or do we need further clarification?
True Christianity is about initiating a personal relationship with God through faith in Christ Jesus' payment for our sins.
The process starts with faith in Christ resulting in rebirth of the dead human spirit. The process continues by walking in the footsteps of Christ by
abiding in the Holy Spirit and avoiding sin.
If the body of christians that collectively makes up the Church follows this path of Spiritual maturity, then the believer progressively reflects the
virtues of Christ. By doing so, these maturing Christians bring blessings upon themselves and their surrounding social group(s).
So, a large population of MATURE Christians brings freedom, prosperity, a sense of personal responsibility, and justice to their nation. By this
process, environment can be improved...by cleaning the cup from the inside first, then the outside. This is what Jesus meant when He called His
believers the "salt of the earth".
Basically, improving environment does not bring stability to man. On the other hand, spiritual maturity brings stability to immediate environment.
If, however, the pivot of maturing believers shrinks, and the Church begins to lose its "salinity", then the nation suffers (socially and
environmentally), and eventually judgment will remove the useless salt and replace it with new salt.
America is about to have its salt violently removed and discarded on account of its Childish Christians.
