LISTEN NOW! Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM! Jesus has called us to transform nations. But, what does that look like? Bill Bright shared what the Lord revealed to him, that to transform nations we must impact and transform all seven Mountains of Culture. When we look at just one aspect, hospitals and charities, we can see how Christianity has greatly impacted how the moral concerns of business operations has caused many businesses to invest in charities.
As Impact 360 Institute reveals, Christianity has had a significant impact on charities and how we respond to the sick and poor. “Christian compassion for the poor and the sick led to institutions for lepers, and later, monasteries dedicated to the care of the sick.” This was the birthplace of our present-day hospitals. Did you know that Christians played a major part in creating orphanages, and other organizations such as the YMCA? “Charitable giving was a uniquely charitable innovation, giving rise to countless philanthropic organizations.”

Did you know that what we now know as hospitals, charitable giving, and orphanages, were started by Christians? We want to hear your thoughts.
