Why are large segments of the Church in the U.S., made up of people who claim to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, the Giver of Life, and the Overcomer of Death, so unmoved by this?
I simply want to ask the Church in the U.S. — why are we so unmoved by this ubiquitous violence and death? Where are the prayer vigils? The marches? The media campaigns? Why such relatively little support for mission work in inner cities compared to the church palaces we build in the suburbs? Why are we not moved to lay down our lives for those who live in the shadow of death each day?
