The Christian and Society

All Christians are under obligation to seek to make the will of Christ supreme in our own lives and in human society. Means and methods used for the improvement of society and the establishment of righteousness among men can be truly and permanently helpful only when they are rooted in the regeneration of the individual by the saving grace of God in Jesus Christ. In the spirit of Christ, Christians should oppose evolution, rewriting history, racism, social justice, the social gospel, socialism, cults, the occult, communism, fascism, every form of greed, selfishness, and vice, and all forms of sexual immorality, including adultery, homosexuality, the redefinition of a biblical marriage, and pornography. We should work to provide for the orphaned, the needy, the abused, the aged, the helpless, and the sick. We should speak on behalf of the unborn and contend for the sanctity of all human life from conception to natural death. Every Christian should seek to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, and brotherly love. In order to promote these ends Christians should be ready to endeavor, always being careful to act in the spirit of love without compromising their loyalty to Christ and His truth. The Christian must also use wisdom in who and what they align themselves with on common cause issues. The Scriptures do not promote social justice, Marxism, Communism or Fascism since these socio/politico/economic theories are not compatible with the Scriptures. The Scriptures do not promote radical environmentalism but state plainly that man cannot effect the environment. The Christian must be aware of that the world is prophetically heading for a one world government, one world currency, and one world leader. Although the will of God cannot be thwarted, the Christian is to be salt and light to oppose these trends.
