My first thought was that Christians should make an entire society Christian, but this clearly is not the case. Japan, for example, has had Christians longer than the USA have existed, yet today is 1% Christian.
It is the goal, however.
Matthew 28:19 Go, therefore,[a] and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.[b] And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Does it mean rather that Christian faith should completely transform every aspect of our lives?
Luke 13:A Call to Repentance.[a] 1 At that time some people who were present there told him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate[b] had mingled with the blood of their sacrifices. 2 He said to them in reply, “Do you think that because these Galileans suffered in this way they were greater sinners than all other Galileans? 3 By no means! But I tell you, if you do not repent, you will all perish as they did!
What then is the significance of wheat flour, only one thing, not a combination of different things?
Society, the world.
Why does Jesus speak so obscurely?
It is written:
Matthew 13:9 Whoever has ears ought to hear.” The Purpose of Parables. 10 The disciples approached him and said, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 [a]He said to them in reply, “Because knowledge of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven has been granted to you, but to them it has not been granted.
Lest you misunderstand, the Apostles (i.e. the Church) is taught directly by Jesus Christ in order that believers may go to the Church to learn what Jesus commanded.
It seems to me evidence in favor of the disbeliever: One clear explanation is that the Bible isn’t “God’s Word to us”, but rather a collection of historical documents each intended only for a specific audience at that time, that people have assigned more significance to out of a combination of wishful thinking and being misled by others.
The Church Teaches us God’s word. The Bible is merely one of the repositories of God’s word. The original depository, is Catholic Tradition. Remember, Jesus established a Church, taught the Church His Doctrines and then commanded the Church to Teach. The Church then wrote the New Testament based on those Teachings.
