There is a growing #population of #people that are of the #opinion that you can #believe what you want, but keep it to yourself.  As the idea of #tolerance morphs into one of discouraging conversation of any consequence, the need for missions and spreading the Gospel is even more urgent.  Take heart because the church has always grown more rapidly in times of resistance if not outright persecution.  Why is the church missions based?  What would happen to the church without missions?  Do we build the church or does Jesus Christ?  What is the foundation of the church, the rock Jesus spoke about?  What is church near sightedness?  My home church has a saying that we are not a country club for believers but rather a hospital for sinners.  How should Christians be good stewards?

Next week we will look at what the Bible says about ethics and whether they are affected by situations.
