Abraham George :: What keeps some Americans from caring about justice?

  • “We seem to be completely oblivious to [real] suffering and pain,” explains Abraham George, Director of International Church Mobilization for the International Justice Mission. There is a disconnect between the pain that affluent Americans experience and the pain of those who suffer terrible injustices. We often cannot comprehend or empathize with the pain on the other side of the cultural gulf. “Even within, the Christian church has not taken the time to understand that: critical to an authentic discipleship is this whole idea of standing up for the poor.”
