Social Justice

Micah 6:8  He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.  And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. This is a great topic in today’s world.  Here are few thoughts—but first what is the definition from the dictionary:  “justice in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society”.

EVANGELISM AND THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL by Kenneth Ogwuna  Evangelism the proclamation of “Good news” of JESUS CHRIST, which arises naturally from believers’ love for God and appreciation of all that God has done for them.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLICAL PROPHECY

Did you know that over 25% of Bible verses contain prophecy?  Since the Bible makes prophecy a priority—so should our churches and we as individuals.  In fact many churches in this country do not teach prophecy at all or may include a very small morsel of prophecy in their diet.  Why do pastors and teachers ignore 25% of the Bible?  A few possibilities:  people will be scared;  might offend some;  people might not tithe;  might be called “looney”; and the fact that some pastors and teachers do not understand it. This could be one cause of the apostasy growing...
