Ponder this...

If our theologies make us focus only on the eternal (i.e., getting my soul into heaven) so that we avoid God's concern for the historic and global (i.e., God's will being done on earth as well as in heaven), then the more people we win over to our theologies, the fewer people will care about God's world here and now. The more converts we make, the worse the world will become.
