I Am My Brother's Keeper Christian Advocacy Council allows us to press the battle against sexual abuse to the church and church related entities in effort to help heal and minister to those in need.
However, there is a growing faction of individuals caught within a growing societal subclass that desperately need ministry and the church to show up. This is in part why we MUST deal with our issues within the church. Jesus said it like this:
Matthew 7:3-5 ~ 3-And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4-Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam isin thine own eye? 5-Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
While that happens, those of us on the mission field who know and believe in the value of life and the human heart and spirit, must be reminded that these are real people. They need us and WE need them! Most importantly, they need us to be REAL!
