From an historic perspective, Vernon Grounds spoke of the influence of the Christian faith:“Along came Christianity and it produced change, remarkable change. It abolished the unthinkable powers of gladiatorial conflicts in the Roman arena. It elevated the position of women. It eliminated the abandonment of children, born and then left to die because they were unwanted. It spearheaded the establishment of hospitals and of schools and of orphanages.” Why did the Christian faith tend to transform the culture where it resided?

      I believe the Christian faith transformed society because it has a strong foundation and is backed with biblical truth. God calls us to feed the hungry, give to the needy, take care of the most vulnerable. Because people started looking to Christ for answers, they were guided by the Holy Spirit to be able to do these wonderful acts in society.

      The Christian faith tends to transform the culture where it resides because the love and light of God can drive out all over darkness. It is a ripple effect that begins with the individual and will eventually change the entire leadership and direction of a society.

      The Christian faith tends to transform the culture around it when the followers of the faith live out God’s love for those around them. When there is need, and Christians see that it is meant, people respond. And, when Christians step up and step in – as Jesus did for us – people begin to see Him in us, us as an extension of Him.

      I believe it was because of love. The first members of Christianity loved and cared for each other as well as those who needed help. They were sharing the love of Christ with everyone.

      Because it transforms the hearts of people, and that is where these problems lie.

      Christianity seems to influence and change culture wherever it is because the gospel in itself changes people. Because of the changed heart, and transformed mind, a change in action has to follow. The scripture says, “Therefore, if anyone be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things have passed away, behold all things are made new.” To be Christian, is to be change. If people change at their core, changes will follow.

      When a persons heart is changed by believing in Christ’s redemption, they act differently. Their beliefs begin to follow those of Jesus. It creates a trickle-down effect where as a person’s life is transformed, that transformation effects the family which in turn effects those outside the family.

      Because as “salt of the earth” Christian’s “spiritual and moral influence helps prevent society’s decay.” “Followers of Christ have reached out to their neighbors with the gospel while sacrificially caring for those in need.” From the bible prophets all the way to 20th century “followers of Christ exercise an uplifting force in society when they combine zealous propagation of the gospel social concern for the poor, and a love-filled burden for doing good in the name of Christ.”
