The biggest crisis in the world “is alienation from God, rebellion against God, it's not believing in Jesus Christ, it's not accepting the offer of mercy and salvation that God's offering to the human race. The primary mission of the Church is not to improve the world. We should absolutely apply the social teaching of the Church, out of charity in all these different areas. But the primary purpose of the Church is to lift up Jesus Christ and call all people, everywhere, to believe in Him and repent," said Ralph Martin, president of Renewal Ministries and author of books, including the recent "A Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward" (Emmaus Road Publishing).
