You told me my darling Without me you're nothing You taught me to look in your eyes And fed me your sweet lies. Suddenly someone was there in the window Looking outside at the sky that had never been blue Oh there's a world without you I see the light Living in a world without you Oh there is hope to guide me I will survive Living in a world without you. It's hard to believe that it came to this You paralysed my body with a poisoned kiss For 40 days and nights I was chained to your bed You thought that was the end of the story Something inside me called freedom came alive Living. Suddenly naked I run through your garden Right through the gates of the past and I'm finally free Oh there's a world without you I see the light Living in a world without you Oh there is hope to guide me I will survive Living in a world without you.
A feature both of contemporary society and of the contemporary church is the growing interest in living in communities. By the word community one is not referring to the old neighbourhood or village communities which are spoken of nostalgically as belonging to the pre-war era, nor to the meaningful social relations which take place on a greater than local scale, such as the expatriate community. Put simply, many members of communities belong to them because they believe living in a community to be closer to God’s ideal for his people than living in separated family units. For its application to the church by a Christian believer see Robert Furbey, ‘Sociology and the Christian Church’ in Christian Commitment and the Study of Sociology, The Ilkley Study Group (nd), 74-104.

It’s not easy being a Christian in a world that is increasingly hostile toward religious belief. The rise of secularism has placed believers in the difficult position of being belittled, ostracized, and lampooned. And sometimes, this intense pressure to join the ranks of non-believers can break a believer’s faith. But there are ways to strengthen that faith-some expected, and others, surprising. These methods are challenging, but if you can work to introduce them to your life, your faith will be better than ever. This isn’t the only benefit of sharpening your faith. But the very act of strengthening your own faith strengthens the Church, and by living out a strong and scriptural faith, you can help change how the world sees Christianity. Showing others the true character of God invites curiosity and interest rather than derision. Don’t let yourself become a victim of weak faith.
