6.3 Three groups in the world
The world is not composed of a single mass of humanity, even though we may commonly think of it in that simplified way.
We see a development into at least the following three lifestyles:
- To the left we have the group which openly hates and persecutes Christians. In this group are included not only satanists, but also for example communists of our own time. In Albania, the communists managed to proclaim themselves the world's first completely atheistic state.
- To the right we have the pseudo-Christian group from the previous illustration. Since these only have the appearance of being God-fearing, they often oppose those who are genuinely alive in God. The Jews did this to their prophets, as did the Pharisees to Jesus and His disciples.
- In the middle we see the largest group, who consider themselves to be "religiously neutral". They are often good people outwardly, who have not yet taken a stand either for or against Christ.
But in spite of this, the risk always remains that their unregenerate base nature could run wild under pressing circumstances, such as happened during the civil war in Jugoslavia. There, people groups who had long lived in harmony with one another suddenly began to kill and torture each other to death in the most gruesome manner.
