“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” — We pray this. Do we take it seriously? What does it mean? What do we actually believe about God’s will being done on earth?
Ask many Christians if the world is getting better or worse today, and they’ll say “worse.” In many ways they are right. Some would even say it will keep getting worse until Jesus returns to set things right. Is that God’s plan for the world? That Christians would be a dwindling remnant? Perhaps.
