Christian Daily reported that an overseas Chinese missionary couple to Madagascar died of COVID-19. The two missionaries from Sabah, Malaysia were Liao Yuyuan and Chen Ciyun. They were sent to Madagascar by the Malaysian Christian Basel Mission.
For Christians, the challenge brought by post-modernism is not only concerning the mind. It is a test for our life. The post-modern culture and thought affect people’s judgment and choices and even forces them to maintain unremitting reason to deal with all aspects of their life.
As Christians, we may also face a similar dilemma. What are our choices when faced with the bullying of vulnerable groups, or when it comes to an unfair environment to the others? Do you let your selfish desires swell or stick to the bottom line of faith and social morality?
The key reason why people can't live righteousness is not knowing God, not accepting the change of faith, not having the moral and righteous view of the Bible, and being induced by material interests and sin.
Christians are not heroes, but they should have their own beliefs, principles, and should not give in to the temptation of evil for their own profit. Those who cannot keep their faith while facing evil should repent and mend their ways.
You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
From the history of the Chinese church, we can learn lessons and find solutions to solve the current crises.
