How Should Christians Do Good?

�𡤜eliver those who are drawn toward death, and hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, �㜭urely we did not know this,�� does not He who weighs the heart consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?�� (Prov. 24:11��12). �𡤜on�脌 hesitate to rescue someone who is about to be executed unjustly. You may say that it is none of your business, but God�� knows and judges your motives. He keeps watch on you; he knows. And He will reward you according to what you do.�� (Prov. 24:11��12 TEV).

The Bible says, �𦒈od has made us what we are, and in our union with Christ Jesus He has created us for a life of good deeds, which He has already prepared for us to do�� (Eph. 2:10 TEV). God wants us to have good deeds, but how? Most people associate good deeds with building bridges, repairing roads, giving to the poor, organizing charities, etc. �𣿯e has told you, O man, what is good, and what the Lord really wants from you; He wants you to promote justice, to be faithful and to live obediently before your God�� (Mic. 6:8 NET). From here it�䏭 obvious that doing good means promoting justice, vanquishing tyrannies, and rescuing mankind!

New Testament Church Is Obligated to Carry out God�䏭 Command �� Vanquish Tyrants and Rescue Men

The Bible teaches us not to hesitate to rescue the victims of tyrants. Don�脌 just stand by and do nothing. To rescue the innocents is the good deed that Christ commands Christians to do. So it has become Christians�� obligation. Unfortunately, many of God�䏭 children today think that it is no concern of theirs. They would rather be worldly-wise and play safe. They do nothing to save others from ruin. God will judge these people according to their motives and reward them according to what they have done. Why will God severely punish such people? This is because Christians who don�脌 lift a finger to save others are going against God�䏭 command. They have not carried out their duty as a Christian. They have seriously neglected their obligation! Even the gallant men of the world would defend the weak against the strong, let alone God�䏭 holy and righteous children. Moreover, saving lives is no small matter. Since there is nothing more important than human life, how can we treat this matter lightly? Therefore, vanquishing tyrants and tyrannies in order to protect the innocent is our Christianly duty, and even more so the responsibility of a preacher.

New Testament Church Carries Out God�䏭 Will

Some say, �嚹here should be a strict separation between church and state. Religion should not interfere with politics. By criticizing the government, the New Testament Church (NTC) is interfering in politics.�� This is a fallacy from Satan, a scheme of the evil rulers, trying to surpass God and overthrow His rule so that they can do whatever they want to satisfy their politically desire. Little do they know that God, who created the heavens, earth, seas, and all things within, is the King over all and the Most High in man�䏭 kingdoms. He appoints king to rule over a nation as He wishes. He holds in His hand the kings�� breath and all their ways. �侻urely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weights the islands as though they were fine dust�� (Isa. 40:15 NIV). �𦯷ll the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: �熎hat have you done?�仮�� (Dan. 4:35 NIV). God has the power to interfere with not only the politics, but also all the systems in man�䏭 kingdom. He is controlling even the actions and life of a ruler. God has given this authority of ruling all things to His church. Thus, the church will manifest His power on earth, because the church is the body of Christ, with Jesus Christ being the head. The church is far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. God has set the NTC far above all. He wants her to speak and act on behalf of Him. Therefore, it is not an offense, but our duty, to denounce the wickedness of man�䏭 kingdoms in God�䏭 name.
