I follow on from my thread on "Christian Socialism".
We are members of God's family, kingdom. How does the culture of God's Kingdom differ from that of the world? Do we live in Kingdom culture? or are we no different from others in the world?
In which ways should the culture of God's Kingdom show in our lives, our fellowships?
The old songs says "They will know we are christians by our love"......Really, do they?? How does that love show?
In Acts they had all things in commen, in Jerusalem that is. How do we, if we ever really do, show the love culture of God's Kingdom in our churches?
We all agree as christians we are to be different, but are we?
What makes me, you, us, stand out from the world?
Surely its more than christians not cussing, smoking, drinking, spitting? Yes, we turn away from sin, but to what? and how is it shown in everyday christian fellowship?
