What Will Christians Think?


Our pastor quoted this yesterday. It definitely reminded me how we (America) are so enslaved to materialism. Christians, let us pray that God would break our hold on this god, and live with our hands open.

We look back on slave-owning churchgoers of 150 years ago and ask, "How could they have treated their fellow human beings that way?" I wonder if followers of Christ 150 years from now will look back at Christians in America today and ask, "How could they live in such big houses? How could they drive such nice cars and wear such nice clothes? How could they live in such affluence while thousands of children were dying because they didn't have food or water? How could they go on with their lives as though the billions of poor didn't even exist?"
(This is from David Platt's book Radical)
