Contributing to Social Action and Debate
Author: Grant Thorpe.
This paper attempts to describe the framework within which Christians can feel confident as participants in the daily business of life, whether in private conversations or public debate, personal living or community action, and whether it be in matters of quiet development or situations of conflict.
Considerable discussion has taken place in recent times regarding a Christian’s duty in his social environment. I have not sought to catalogue the various views taken, but have sought to clarify some of the ‘givens’ within which a person may discover how they should act and talk in the world. I have not been able to fully expound any Biblical perspective, nor make applications in any detail, but have tried to give some direction for further consideration.
