A Creative Minority

     The world of Christian faith in the past few decades has had to come to grips with its decrease in popularity among secular masses - to the point that Christian faith is now sensing and experiencing a mild persecution, if you will, from the core values of moral law and practice. No longer is it popular to be Christian, for with Christian faith comes a dedication and lifestyle given to Jesus Christ and not to a moral standard, or particular lifestyle.

     In the not so distant future, true Christians will be those who are less popular among the masses, and it will no longer be "hip" or "in" to be Christian. Christians will become what can be called "a creative minority," in that the Christian minorities among the masses will have to attract the secular humanism of our day with, as the Bible says, "salt and light". Both salt and light are attractive to one's taste and sight.

     Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth . . . you are the light of the world . . . You are a city that is set on a hill and cannot be hidden. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven (Matt. 5:13-16).
