What in the world is God doing? I suspect there are those who would say,
Not very much. The world looks like God wound it up, started it spinning, and then walked away from it.
And if you should ask,
How is the Gospel doing in the world, someone might reply,
Not very well. After all, most of the world is not Christian, and never has been. All those dead people who never heard of Jesus in their lifetime—where are they?
Now I realize I am making some people uncomfortable with these questions, but they are honest questions that deserve an honest answer. Paul gives us some insight with his words to Timothy.
