There’s A Bunch Of People Who Have Never Heard Of Jesus, And Chances Are, You Don’t Care

I don’t mean to be rude, but I have to be honest: the odds are, mathematically, stacked against you. There’s a bunch of people who have never heard the gospel. Chances are, you don’t care.

  • THE 10/40 WINDOW
  • The 10/40 Window is home to 6,921 unreached people groups. (Joshua Project)
  • 2.82 billion people live in the 10/40 Window.
  • 82% of the world’s poorest of the poor live in the 10/40 Window. (SGWM)
  • Nearly 40% of the world’s population live on less than $1.40 per day in the 10/40 Window.
  • Although 2.8 billion of these people live within the 10/40 Window, only 2.4% of all missionaries work among them.
  • MONEY AND MISSIONS
  • Annual Income of All Church Members: $30.5 trillion.
  • Given to any Christian causes: $545 billion (1.8% of our income) That’s also how much we spend in America on Christmas.
  • Given to Missions: $31 billion, (0.1%). That’s only 5.7% of the money given to Christian causes of any kind. That’s also how much we spend in America on dieting programs.
  • Money that goes toward the reached world: $26,970,000,000 (that means 87% of the money given to “missions” goes to areas with “reached” status or access to the gospel already).
  • Money that goes toward unreached peoples: $310 million (that’s only 1% of what is given to “missions”). That’s also how much Americans in 2011 spent on Halloween costumes (for their pets).
  • The $310 million (going toward unreached people groups) is only .001% of the $30.5 trillion Income of Christians. For every $100,000 that Christians make, they give $1 to the unreached. (The Traveling Team, Money and Missions)
  • Excitement and empathy are not enough. Compassion must be put into motion.
  • It’s empathy with wheels. It’s care with commitment.
  • It’s true. Unreached people are the forgotten population of the world. But you DO care, don’t you?
