9.6. Lack of confidence
In most countries today, Bible believing Christians are in the extreme minority. In most Muslim countries, Christians are less than 10% of the population. In some cases, there are no more than 1000 believers (such as in Somalia, where Christian believers constitute a tiny 0.01% of the population).
This is actually very similar to the situation reported in the book of Numbers:
Many Christians feel the same way today, focusing on their own weakness and the apparent strength of others. What they forget is the first part of the great commission: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me!” (Matthew 28:18) What is needed today is an effective minority, those who act like salt or light; no matter how little of either is present, it changes everything.
