Who Gives Kudos:



Critical Mass

This was a subject I didn’t really like when I was in college. To me it was obvious that change would occur when enough of the current minority elements grew to a size that would tip the balance, and gain the weight to make a difference to the outcome.

So, how does that apply to us, the Christian community? Well, firstly, we are in the minority in the UK, and a very low minority at that. In fact, our opinions are usually dismissed out of hand by those in authority. A good example is the same sex marriage debate, and the redefinition of marriage which will result.

Does this mean that we are sunk, and not in any position to make a difference? I would say not, because we are called to be ‘the salt of the world’. It doesn’t take a lot of salt on a meal to make a difference to the overall taste. Also, have a think about the original disciples and apostles, a minority who became a worldwide influence of change in a very short time. Somehow, they reached that point where there were enough of them in God’s hands to change nations. They made a difference long before they reached a critical mass, and used it to change the world for good. God plus His child are a majority! The laws of physics are great, but they God’s laws, and in God’s hands, so let me leave you with these thoughts from God’s Word:

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
