Christian Issues

There are many issues that impact the lives of Jesus followers, or Christians. They can sometimes be political issues, social issues, relational issues, or issues about how we worship or operate churches. They can be moral issues or things that pertain to ethics and our behavior. Some Christians try to live as islands among the darkness of the world, but that was never God’s plan for His followers. In fact, just the opposite. We are to be a light in the darkness. We are supposed to be ambassadors for the kingdom of God. If Christians lock arms in some weird kind of huddle, it can be quite challenging being a light in a dark place if we never go to a place that is dark. There is a difference, of course, between being a light in a dark place, such as work or school or non-Christian clubs, and dwelling in darkness to the point we no longer identify ourselves as Jesus followers, but people of darkness. 

By design, most of us associate with people who are not Christians. It is this interaction that can create issues for those of us who follow Jesus. This page is about those issues.
