91 Things We can do to Defend and Expand Christian Civilization
When writing these ideas down on things we can do to promote and spread Christian civilization around the world, I was thinking of two things. One was we have to have a defensive and offensive strategy in place in order to maintain and model Christ in our families. The other was to provide ideas on ways most of us could engage people with interactive communication and projects that put the message in front of many of them.
The purpose of the list is to generate ideas and thoughts, while possibly encouraging some to participate in them. For that reason I didn’t go into details on any of them, although I’m probably going to break down a number of them in the future.
That said, there is one I want to specifically talk about, because I think it has a lot of potential to attract opposition while bringing the message to light, and that is the first one listed below, which is putting up various types of designs of the ten commandments on private property.
Why this will probably be one of the more effective tools is because the opposition to it has been so great on public property. I don’t think the real reason was because of the fictitious separation of church and state, but because law breakers and opponents didn’t want the message to be shared in places many people would see it.
Another thought on that is if people could find some property close by to courthouses which would continually remind people of the laws of God.
Because of zoning laws, some of these strategies may not be legal, but there are a lot of ways to place the ten commandments in the public eye. This is a project I’m going to work on in the not too distant future. I’ll talk more about it at another time.
As for the list below, if you have some other ideas include them in the comments. I’m always looking things that can promote the spread of the kingdom of God on earth via Christian civilization.
Also, when reading, consider I didn’t repeat the idea of doing it to further the kingdom of God so it wasn’t repetitive and monotonous to read. All the things that make up the list are done with advancing Christian civilization in mind.
For example, using social media platforms and writing children’s books should be understood in that light; not only as general things to do outside of those parameters.
