Jesus was clear about his followers’ responsibility to do something about human oppression.
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37
He described his mission:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free…” Luke 4:18
What can we do?
Purify our attitudes
The church MUST engage because there is no full recovery without Jesus Christ.
Restoration is a healing journey, best made with companions of faith who are patient and believe in miracles.
I’m in—until all are free.
