How Do We Influence Change?

We can make a difference in how this world develops, but until we can individually hold ourselves to be obedient in our Christian lives, it is all a smoke screen with no base.

It’s very common to feel helpless as we watch the world decay around us. We turn on the evening news and see nothing but hate, often driven by the media and political operatives. What do we do as Christians? Is there an option to have a voice against this moral decline? Outside of the obvious answer, which is to pray for our nation, as Christians, we do have a voice. There are approximately 70% of the people in the United States who identify as Christian. What would happen if those 70% took a hard stand and said we will not own a company that utilizes Life Ending Scientific research or supports the abortion industry. I can assure you that things would change. That 70% could have a massive influence on our culture today, but it doesn’t. It has very little influence because people are not living their beliefs. It is no different than a vegetarian eating only beef. Our beliefs dictate our behavior. When a Christian man settles down and watches porn on his computer, is he guided by his Christian beliefs? When we visit the gas station and buy $20 worth of Powerball tickets, are we living our Christian beliefs? When we verbally abuse our spouse and children, are we living by our Christian beliefs? We can make a difference in how this world develops, but until we can individually hold ourselves to be obedient in our Christian lives, it is all a smoke screen with no base.
