Why Don't Christians Care About the World?

I had a great conversation with a Jewish person at a party recently, who said that "All Christians care about is life after death. What about the world now...the poor and less fortunate? Why don't Christians care about the world?"

As we talked, I mentioned that there are those Christians who do care more about the afterlife than the present life, but some are balanced. As I shared a little of my story and thoughts, he thanked me for not proselytizing and just conversing. I can understand where he was coming from.

I did share the good news of Jesus, but it does not have to be shoved down people's throats. It really is good news. It ended up being a great conversation.
