Christ brings progress to all

Christ brings progress to all

“Righteousness exalts a nation.” Pr 14:34 NKJV

The well-known atheist Madalyn Murray O’Hair once said, “Nothing good has ever come from Christianity. And if Christianity hasn’t, in fact, done good and produced good we must reject it.” Even Christ Himself said, “You shall know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:16 NKJV). But with every word of Christ that’s been preached, lives have been transformed and incredible good done for society. Take science, for example. As one expert pointed out, science could never have originated in any other culture. It couldn’t possibly have originated in the Muslim culture because of its belief in fatalism, which absolutely prevents any concept of scientific progress. Nor could it have originated among the Buddhists, or the Hindus of Asia, because of their belief that the physical world isn’t real, that nothing exists but God, and that all this is merely imagination. Only through Christianity could science have come to be! Think about those who have gone into the slums to rescue the derelict, like the Salvation Army, the City Mission, and the YMCA. Christians have given themselves to such people as these. Today with the removal of Scripture from much of our culture, we’re seeing decay and corruption set in. So what’s the answer? Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth” (Mt 5:13 NKJV). So get your saltshaker out and start spreading the life-changing truth of God’s Word! Jesus also said, “You are the light of the world” (v. 14 NKJV). There’s not enough darkness in the whole world to extinguish the light of one small candle. So let your light shine.
