There increasingly is over 1 billion who suffer from chronic under- and malnutrition, with millions dying annually. Around 1.1 billion do not have access to clean freshwater, with an additional 1.5 billion not having proper sanitation resulting in a total of over 5.3 million deaths a year. An estimated 1.3 billion people lack access to basic healthcare resulting in the suffering and death of tens of millions each year from preventable and/or treatable diseases. Currently over 60 million babies worldwide are killed every year through the accepted practice of abortion. Many more are: orphans without a proper home; abjectly poor; uneducated and without the hope of a proper, enabling education. Many more are unable to be functional in society due to a disability which, with the proper aids and/or assistance, can be surmounted or coped with. Can God’s Church do something to redress these injustices and downright evils? And if yes, then should it not do it?
