I am happy to write thoughts on this website. Recently, I apologized for my extended time off line. In that post I took a few moments to share with those who don't know me how I have been an advocate for extended families for many years.
I received a comment from another member who pointed out that there are a lot of folks that will tell you they are advocates, but most are silent and lack action. This young woman hit the nail on the head. It is easy to use the term advocate on a website that is full of other people who agree with you, but is far more difficult to do so in a world where you mighrt lose everything for your beliefs. In the book of James, he points out that faith without works is dead. In the Gospel of John, Jesus makes one statement several times in various ways. To paraphrase If you love me you will obey my commandments, if you do not obey my commandments my love is not in you. No matter where you look in the New testament, believers are urged to action.
The great news is that action leads to change. The Apostles went out and spread the message and changed the world. The bad news is that until change comes you will face adversity. The question that comes to mind is what are you willing to lose to change the world?
The term Christian means to be a follower, disciple or mimicker of Christ. Are you willing to be any of those things? If so it requires action.
