The Impact of Christians in Kingdom of the Left Hand

The last blog stressed the need to be aware of the past, present, and future. Instead of being a chronological narcissist, who is only concerned with self in the here and now, it is essential to know the past, be cognizant of present issues, and be prepared for future trends. In order to know more of how Christians made an impact on their societies in the past, read the book by Dr. Alvin Schmidt, How Christianity Changed the World.

Here is a list of the topics addressed in the book: People transformed; Sanctity of human life; Elevation of sexual morals; Charity & compassion; Dignity of women; Hospitals & health care; Education, science, & labor; Liberty, justice, & slavery; Arts, music, & literature

The impact of Christians in the kingdom of the left hand, the state, is clear. James Russell Lowell, a poet and diplomat (1819-1891), made a case for the positive contributions of Christians in society. He said, “I challenge any skeptic to find a ten square mile spot on this planet where they can live their lives in peace and safety and decency, where womanhood is honored, where infancy and old age are revered, where they can educate their children, where the Gospel of Jesus Christ has not gone first to prepare the way. If they find such a place, I would encourage them to emigrate thither and there proclaim their unbelief.”
