9. What actions would you recommend that Christians take to change the world for Christ?

 
  • "Christians should focus on the opportunities around them. Using those opportunities to evangelise to the people around them. Instead of not doing anything and stating 'One day I'll be a missionary' – it starts with where you are not where you want to be";
  • "Clean their lives'. Read good books and especially the Bible. Be sober and vigilant about the world systems and influence. Be more informed and uncompromising with sin".
  • "Live more careful evangelistic lives and evangelise more. Keep their own children close to Christ";
  • "To live by example according to the Gospel";
  • "Live a Godly life"; "To preach the Word of God with boldness";
  • "Take the Gospel to the streets"; "Preach the Gospel";
  • "Demonstrate how we are different, and actually start living out our faith";
  • "Get out to tell others"; "Discussion groups"; "Pray for God's grace";
  • "Find out what your gifts are. Ask God to make you usable and then go out by helping in your church and/or community";
  • "Christians should be trained and informed on current issues and mobilized to action by taking responsibility for the Great Commission";
  • "Stand up for what is right, even if others disagree. It is better to stand alone for what is right than to stand with the crowd for what is wrong";
  • "To show more passion for the lost";
  • "Make disciples wherever you go, be bold, seek opportunities to preach the Gospel";
  • "Be bold, educate yourself";
  • "Repent, turn to God wholeheartedly allowing Him to change every area of our lives by intense study and application and the practically be doing what it says every single day";
  • "A march to fight against abortion";
  • "Just do something somewhere, even if it is small";
  • "Prayer, outreaches – simply taking action!";
  • "Christians should be more informed about what is happening in the world";
  • "Take a stand. Don't just sit still. There are subjects that need to be addressed much more earnestly e.g. tattoos";
  • "Believe! Obey! Fight";
  • "Be careful to stay close with God and His Word, seek Him first";
  • "Study and educate the world on world issues, e.g. abortion, pornography. Evangelise the world";
  • "Spread the Gospel. Take a stand against abortion etc.; be outspoken to others";
  • "Revive your prayer life, reform your family, take a Biblical stand, be bold and brave for Christ";
