THE PRISON POPULATION IN NEW ZEALAND

The prison population in our country is growing. What can we do about it?

I am asking now, “Is that a social problem or is that a spiritual problem?”

The reason for asking that question is  because someone has identified four drivers of crime:

  1. Poverty,
  2. Poor mental health services,
  3. Poor housing,
  4. Lack of educational opportunities.

What does the Bible say? In Matthew 15:19 the Lord Jesus Christ says,”For out of the Heart come evil thoughts, …”

It is a spiritual problem.

At the beginning I asked, “What can we do about the growing prison population?” The answer is, “We must preach the GOSPEL!”
