There should be no division in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it.(1 Corinthians 12:25,26 NASB) Social action and social justice become the concern and responsibility of the church in a changing world. The majority of western countries are by nature secular, many have disgregarded their Christian heritage. This heritage formed the backbone of western civilisation. The author has great faith in the local church. This book proves and illustrates that the local church has the capacity to bring enormous change. It is the sleeping giant that is beginning to awaken to the need for social involvement. This involvement is both social action and social justice. The local church can be found in the jungles of the Congo Basin to the major capital cities of the world. When we learn that God's purpose for our lives is greater than our own wants and desires, that collectivly in unity we can bring a positive and great change to the dissenfranchised people of the world.
