Thursday Thought For the Day: Stuff Christians Like #571

The blog "Stuff Christians Like" is a tongue-in-cheek examination of the quirks and just plain bizarre beliefs and practices that Christians may or may not engage in. Post number 571 discusses the practice of: "using "we live in a fallen world" as an excuse not to do anything about it. "

As Christians, we are called to love others as God loves us. But how do we respond when the world's corruption and needs are overwhelming? We may believe that in this fallen world, there is nothing we can do to help that will really make a difference. Or we may be looking for an excuse not to work toward positive change, but to continue to focus solely on our own lives.

"...when God gave us His two greatest commands, love Him and love others as much as we love ourselves, He didn't say, unless you live in a fallen world. There was no caveat that gave us the freedom to give less than love if the world we're living in is less than perfect. If anything, a fallen world is a world that needs love the most."

  1. I'll prime the comments pump!

    I like the link but my take is the world remains the same degree fallen that it always was. It just presents in different ways throughout history, IMO.

    I agree, however, that we still need to be salt and light regardless of what happens to be out there.
