Part 2: If You Feel Like God, You Will Do Justice.
As I sat through speaker after speaker at the conference, one question kept surfacing for me. If the need is this demonstrably urgent, and the Bible is so plainly clear about God’s heart for the cause of the needy, why isn’t there a flood of Christians giving their time, talents, and resources?
Francis Chan, the closing speaker, put it in these terms. There are 800,000 children in the American foster system, children in desperate need of homes and love. There are more than 2,000,000 people in America who self-identify as Christians. How can those two numbers co-exist? How is that statistic even possible?
