Three groups ask John, "What should we do?"
He reponds: Share. Be fair. Don't use your position to get more than you deserve.
Repentance is more than a momentary feeling. It's something that changes the way you live, the way you treat others.
I'm thinking about what some prominent Christian movements consider the main issues of the day--abortion and homosexuality. Well, I can go all day long without having an abortion or a homosexual affair. John's requirements are more difficult. I can get through most days without doing very much voluntarily to right economic inequities. I don't steal or cheat, but I can eat a big lunch on the same day that someone within a mile of me is eating very little.
