Despite so much evidence that some humans seem to be evil, enough people care about other people and do good in many ways.
It seems to me that evil is ever present as the news heaotheresdlines indicate; yet the people of the world have somehow managed to do more than survive. When a disaster hits sure some opportunistic thieves steal from victims and pillage or worse, affecting their fellow humans negatively by making a bad situation even more traumatic but, most do not.
Many people provide assistance in many forms: medical attention, search and rescue, clean water, food, shelter and often financial aid for rebuilding. Why do people care about strangers, foreigners, or people in a different culture halfway around the world?
As a Christian I believe it is because we are taught to do so by reading and learning from GOD’s Word.
Hebrews 13:16 ESV
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
Philippians 2:4 ESV
Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
So, by considering the needs of others we become obedient servants for GOD demonstrating GOD’s love for people to all the world.
No we do not earn Earthly points or work our way to heaven; as followers of Jesus we already have eternal salvation.
When we care for others we show GOD’s love to those who do not know of, or about, the one true GOD. Our actions may even cause another human to turn away from selfishness, hedonism and a godless existence and they may even accept GOD’s grace by believing in Jesus Christ and become a fellow believer. If that were to happen you can join in with the heavenly host and joyfully celebrate.
Luke 15:7 and 10 ESV
Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
. . .
Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Titus 3:5 ESV
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,
Becoming a Christian is easy and simple
John 3:16 ESV
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
