SO THAT THEY MIGHT KNOW HIM
It has been estimated that 90% of the global resources of Christendom are stored up in North America. We have churches on every corner, Christian colleges and seminaries, Christian radio and TV, and access to countless excellent para-church ministries. Jesus said,
“From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." (Luke 12:48)
In our world today, the vast majority of people who don’t know Christ are located in the part of the world located from 10 degrees north of the equator to 40 degrees north of the equator. Stretching from North Africa through the Middle East and into the Orient is the area known as the 10/40 Window. It is the window that most of the major non-Christian religions are centered, easily remembered by the acronym THUMB.
