Jesus World View

My Fair LadyOur intolerance is conditioned by the groups we associate with. No one is entirely free from favoritism. Pride becomes "a perverse desire of height.", in the words of Saint Augustine also known as Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) in North Africa. Many of us are very often just like Professor Higgins in the musical "My Fair Lady" who asks, "Why can't they behave like us?" Worldwide Christian kinship should not allow any racial tensions nor any bigotry between poor or rich, black or white, heterosexual or homosexual, even feminist or male chauvinist! We all fall under the Word of God and are divinely directed by the Scriptures.✞

Vision of Worldwide Kinship

Globe of WorldSaint Paul had a vision for Worldwide kinship. He didn't sit on his hands but traveled over three thousand miles along dusty roads and across dangerous seas to bring Jesus' world view to Rome, Crete, Cyprus, Galatia, Corinth and many other places. The other Apostles after the Resurrection likewise spread out in every directions to Africa, India, Asia and across Europe. Even though the Jerusalem church was later wiped out by a Muslim invasion in 629 AD, the mission of Christ not only continued but flourished! The staggering lesson here for our proud Western churches is that no denomination is indispensable! If the founding congregation in Jerusalem where Jesus spent virtually all his time could be utterly destroyed then why should we believe we are any different if we stray from the truth?
