We Christians are commonly not hesitant to tell the world how it should live however are regularly reluctant to tell the congregation how it should live. Putting it another way; as Christians (salt and light) we are called to “love the Lord our God with everything that is in us and mind and to adore our neighbors (the world) as ourselves”.
We are called to cherish the world, not sentence it for as indicated by the Bible, the world is as of now denounced.
Numerous individuals on the planet, even non-Christians can cite John 3:16 which says “For God so cherished the world that He gave His solitary conceived child, so whoever puts stock in Him will not die yet have never-ending life.”
Do we know the following section however”

John 3:17 says “For God didn’t send his Son into the world to denounce the world, yet all together that the world may be spared through him.”
Numerous Christians, with full ‘support’ and ‘remaining on the WORD’, denounce the acts of others when we are really called to “go into the world and make pupils of them, purifying through water them for the sake of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” and showing them Christ, and His salvation. [My rewording of the Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20]
Does this mean we are not to ‘resent’ the wrongdoing that on the planet – sins of scorn and eagerness and unethical behavior and murder and such? Obviously we are in any case, the Lord said we are to be “on the planet yet not of the world”
It was at long last uncovered to me while contemplating the Bible on this issue, I have had everything incorrectly – I had it the incorrect path around.
I stand firm on numerous social issues and it upsets me see the ‘world’ regularly making a joke of Christian virtues. Furthermore, ordinarily they are right, there is no ideal Christian individual or Church or church pioneer.
What I had been off-base about was that I resented the individuals executing certain demonstrations and ways of life as opposed to speaking God’s salvation plan to them and indicating them by MY life activities, that God’s way is superior to the world’s way.
I was significantly angrier with the chapels that overlook a portion of these ‘politically right’ activities and mentalities under the pretense of Christian love and acknowledgment.
That is the place the Light of Truth was shone the most brilliant into my soul.
However, I understand I make little endeavor to demand an explanation from different Christians for bringing the world’s worth framework inside their places of worship.
Individual Christians ought to bring the uplifting news of Jesus Christ to the ‘lost’ world and not denouncing it and we ought to go up against our houses of worship since they are ‘found’ yet they censure themselves by bringing the awful updates on the world to into their dividers.
From the Sermon on the Mount, Christ said that we are the good and honest. In any case, what great is salt in the event that it has lost its flavor? Would you be able to make it helpful once more? It will be tossed out and stomped all over as useless.
He likewise said that we are the light of the world – like a city on a mountain, sparkling in the night for all to see. Try not to conceal your light under a crate! Rather, put it on a stand and let it sparkle for all.
Similarly, let your great deeds sparkle out for all to see, with the goal that everybody will laud your glorious Father.”
The main way that the Christian church will influence the ‘world’ in a positive route is by indicating Christ to it and standing firm on Biblical certainties, not permitting the ‘world’s’ mainstream, relative realities to invade its dividers.
