Compassionate Secular Nations

Compassionate Secular Nations: “Is a society to be considered moral if its citizens love the Bible a lot (as in the United States), or rather, if its citizens virtually wipe out poverty from their midst (as in Scandinavia)?”

For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous. (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.)

Romans 2:13-15 (NIV)

I have experienced church members (here in the U.S.) who were unwilling to help fellow church members who were disabled, and non-believers who were much more understanding and compassionate. This is a sad state of affairs and American churches need to repent, for “charity begins at home.”
