This is the mentality that every Christian man must understand. Christians still don’t get this. Why would you win a person to Christ? What is supposed to happen to him? Does he only miss hell and go to heaven? No. Once a man is born again, he is called to function like Christ in every area of life, including the world around him. He is called to imitate God in private and in public. The Bible says, “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children” (Ephesians 5:1 NASB).
God is concerned about the beliefs of those who run the culture. Jesus has authority in heaven and earth and that includes every nation. Under His authority, He said in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), Christians should disciple nations.
“Jesus came and told his disciples, ‘I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
They didn’t know how to do that. They didn’t even have accurate maps. He expected them to figure it out because it was a command.
According to God, His underlying principles are so sound and universally acceptable that these principles must become the foundation of how you function and how every culture functions under our discipleship of nations.
God’s principles are not only to be read and heard but also to be learned and applied everywhere, in every nation on earth.
God’s principles are fixed, uniform, and universal. They are applicable everywhere, at all times—in this world and the next. Spiritually there is no death. When you die and go to the next world, what you know and do now in this life will prepare you to function in the next.
