Background of the Christ Movement book
A multitude of social ills that face societies today pose a major threat to the well-being of humankind and, at times, even to our existence. Terrorism, ethnic cleansing, political and racial strife, oppression, human rights violations, the threat of nuclear attacks, and many additional, serious social issues create ongoing challenges to people around the world. This chapter explores what one can learn from the Bible about important social issues today. Perhaps the best way to start a discussion of what 'the Bible says' that is relevant to social issues today is to explore what it says about life itself. Abortion is certainly a social issue that has raised considerable controversy and that has deeply divided people who are referred to as 'pro-choice' from those who are referred to as 'pro-life'. For millions of people, including far too many infants and children, poverty is a death sentence.
