Forum 7.3 - Reflections on the World Community & the Millennium Development Goals
This does line up with the gospel of Jesus Christ. He came to save the least and the lost. The gospels reflect this in many ways, the woman Jesus sent away and said to sin no more after men wanted to stone her for adultery. He healed many. He was respectful to women and used them in his ministry. He fed the hungry. The list goes on and on. If we are serious about our service to Jesus in this world, this all lines up with serving others in the name of Jesus.
Some of the Millenium goals have made progress, especially the one on poverty despite what one sees.... and even with the HIV/AIDS one there has been progress. And they are the modern day elements Jesus talked about... but more needs to be done for sure. Eliminating poverty in the USA is not helped by the criminal justice system, the education system and the economic system that favors the wealthy.
