In 2002 a scholar from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences shared with a group of Westerners the research he thought accounted for the preeminence of the Western world. After dismissing views that our success was tied to our military, politics, or economic systems, here was his conclusion:
“…the heart of your culture is your religion: Christianity. That is why the West has been so powerful. The Christian moral foundation of social and cultural life was what made possible the emergence of capitalism and then the successful transition to democratic politics. We don’t have any doubt about this.”
In light of our nation’s recent birthday, it is helpful to remember that our national independence has brought untold blessings for us and others throughout the world. Those things can easily be seen, but our dependence is on God.
GNPI serves a hurting world from our knowledge of this dependency. We are blessed to be a blessing to many. GNPI equips the body of Christ with culturally relevant media and technology to accelerate global evangelism and fulfill The Great Commission.
