Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people. In an age of spiritual adultery, how do Christians demonstrate fidelity to Christ, in facing laws and social systems rooted in immoral, sinful values? Christians are called to be ‘salt and light’ and to bless their communities. How then should Christians, as faithful watchmen and committed citizens living in secular democracies, respond to a political agenda driven by a godless philosophy which has harmful social and spiritual consequences?
God looks for a Christian to stand in the gap and to advance His redemptive purpose for our nations. In this book, Dr. Li-ann Thio identifies the gap and explains how we are to ‘mind’ it. She examines how the spirit of the anti-Christ, the spirit of lawlessness, manifests in the philosophy, morality and politics that shape our laws, systems and mindsets. Keys to identify the traits and agents of lawlessness are provided. Mind the Gap offers practical and biblical guidelines to equip us to resist the evil of lawlessness and to promote what is true and righteous. This is integral to Christian discipleship and living as a holy sacrifice. So get equipped to engage in the public square and contend for righteousness in an age of lawlessness.
