How many times does the world show up at the church doors looking for help only to find ineffective believers who send them away to seek solutions elsewhere? That is sad. I personally believe that every need in this world can be met by the church. No exceptions. The only reason the church is not addressing vexing issues like child abuse, poverty, and crime, is because the church doesn’t believe it can. God’s children have been convinced that difficulties of the world are best fixed by worldly solutions.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Only when the church accepts that it possesses both the knowledge and the power, will real solutions appear.
Take Away: Every need in the world can be solved by the one institution not of this world.
