How the world will be changed

"This is how the world will be changed: individuals who have had their lives touched by Christ turning around and touching the lives of others. Thomas Kelly writes that we are first torn loose from earthly attachments and ambitions and then quickened to a divine concern for the world. "He plucks the world out of our hearts......And He hurls the world into our hearts, where we and He together carry it in tender love" It is not that pursuing cultural agendas through various political or social processes is unimportant. But a Christian nation is not forged primarily through legislation. And a Christian nation is not even the first goal, as if the mission is to steer culture toward some form of theocracy. The primary goal is a nation of Christians, which can then shape the heart of a nation toward Christian values"
